A hacker can hack or leak the data from your android smartphone. A few of android developers timely release security updates.
Google is one of the smartphone manufacturer releasing monthly security updates. Due to low security risk, many of enterprises avoid android systems for sharing confidential data. Google is working for the solution of ‘Android Enterprise Recommended’ program. The company claims that all the android device running Android 7.0 or higher can be used for business enterprises. According to the report:
All phones must be running Android 7.0 or higher, support zero-touch enrollment with which companies can pre-configure the devices during the purchase process, so they are ready to go the moment they are shipped. Organizations can use software from companies such as VMware AirWatch, BlackBerry, MobileIron, IBM, Gsuite, etc. to pick configurations and device policies. All phones must be sold carrier-unlocked and monthly security updates must go out to the devices within 90 days of release from Google, for a minimum of three years.
