Android for Work is ramping up, and Google has been hard at work to get everyone on board. The company today announced that 40 new partners have signed up to be a part of Android for Work, including all major Canadian and US carriers.
Alongside carriers, Google has some of the biggest Android device manufacturers in HTC, Samsung, Motorola, LG, Sony, Huawei and ZTE. They’ve even gotten some of the smaller guys to come along like Silent Circle (whose Blackphone 2 will come with proper Android for Work support out of the box).
The rest of the partners are comprised of security solution companies, such as Cisco for VPN, Blackberry and SAP for remote device management, and Adobe, Box and Citrix for enterprise applications and deployment.
All of this may not sound important to the common user, but Android deserves a place in enterprise, and the only way it’s going to get that spot (and hold it) is if everyone’s working together to make it more secure and make it easy for businesses to adopt it.
