The search giant now intends to strengthen its stand in the enterprise environment by introducing a initiative called “Android for Work”.
Today, Google introduced “Android for Work” that focuses on making Android devices more office-friendly. Through this, users can manage their content and can keep their professional data separate in silos, without merging it up with personal content.
