Android for Work 2

Google today said support for its Android for Work program has swelled to 40 companies thanks to the addition of new carriers, phone makers, app developers, and management providers.

AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint in the U.S., and Rogers, Bell Canada, and Telus Mobility in Canada have thrown their weight behind Android for Work, marking the first time carriers have joined the program. This means people/businesses will be able to ask their carriers to provide the security, device management, and productivity tools included in Android for Work.

Samsung is working with Android for Work, too, in conjunction with its own KNOX services. Silent Circle’s forthcoming Blackphone 2 is another handset that will support Android for Work. Google says more than 10,000 businesses are testing, deploying, or using Android for Work.

The program is meant to help offer secure connections to corporate information, the ability for IT to manage devices remotely, and access to Google’s productivity apps.
