SAP: Android is safe for businesses

SAP - a leading manufacturer of enterprise resource planning software - has insisted Android-based mobile devices are safe to use for business purposes.

Speaking to TabTimes, chief information officer Oliver Bussman said 500 models that use the Android operating system are securely supported.

This, he stated, should end the debate over whether the platform is a safe option for companies.

"Really, there are all the tools to manage the entire lifecycle of Android and in a much more advanced way than Apple," Mr Bussman said.

Device encryption was flagged up as one important security feature, along with the ability to monitor handsets remotely to shut them down or have them decommissioned.

Mr Bussman added that SAP offers about 100 security features for Android-based devices, while a further 200 will be delivered soon.

He was speaking after Jim Hagemann Snabe, co-chief executive of SAP, was quoted by Bloomberg as saying SAP plans to step up its focus on mobile products over the next three years.
