Android OS Updates & Patches

Ensuring maximum device security and performance

Android OS Updates

Google release a full update to their Android operating system annually. Unlike with your consumer devices where it’s standard practice to run that OS update without much thought, the impact of installing the latest available OS without prior planning within your business could be huge.

To ensure the seamless introduction of the latest Android OS to your business, time is first needed to complete extensive testing with your solution. To spot potential problems before they can cause your business headaches, we offer a managed Android OS Update service.

Android Security Patch Management

Keeping on top of Android’s monthly security patches is key to device maintenance and integral to protecting your business data for maximum security and achieving optimal OS performance.

With such regular updates coming your way, deploying them can absorb a lot more of your internal resource than you’d like. Each patch introduces changes that need to be thoroughly tested before you roll the update out across your device estate. You don’t want to later find unexpected issues that have appeared within your software applications affecting your operations.
