Issues of security do need to be considered carefully, especially in an age where information can be accessed anywhere and anytime. One of the world's IT giants, Google, claims that their security system has improved over the past 2017.

Andina L., Tekno Liputan6-Jakarta - Google Security Chief, David Kleidermacher, ensures Android Android is a secure system like its competitors. Kleidermacher is Google's chief security officer since May 2016, who is responsible for making Android, Google Play and Chrome systems are safe.

Reported Phone Arena, Monday March 19, 2018 about Android security is delivered Kleidermacher when releasing Google security reports. Based on the new report, Android security declared a leap of progress in 2017 and much of its protection is now leading the industry.

To keep Android devices safe, a shared commitment of users is required. For example, when referring to a Google party statement, Android devices that download apps from the Play Store are probably nine times less likely to install a Potential Harmfull Application (PHA) than a sideload app. In addition, Android devices are also protected with Google Play Protect, which scans the system to find PHA inside devices, data and apps.

Thanks to this technology, users can also find lost Android devices, protect them from malicious websites, and benefit from systems that can detect and remove PHA.

According to Google data, it is possible to download PHA from the Play Store decreased. Daily scans from Google Play Protect help remove 39 million PHA from an average of one million devices. "Google is working with device manufacturers, SoCs and mobile operators to provide Android security to all devices and by 2017 we are also expanding security proactively by identifying and removing PHA on Android devices," Google wrote in its report.

Google increasingly seriously asserted that Android is a safe OS. Having previously done sorting in the Play Store, this time the internet giant is introducing a series of smartphones that are suitable for business needs.

Devices used for business needs are usually equipped with a more qualified security system. Therefore, given the many assumptions Android is less secure, not many business users use this operating system. To dismiss that presumption, this time Google launched the Android Enterprise Recommended program. As the name implies, this program presents a list of Android devices that are suitable for corporate business purposes.

Google says devices that can be included in this list must meet a number of requirements, such as minimal hardware support capable of running Android Nougat/7.0, mass marketed, capable of providing security updates after 90 days and released for up to three years, and selling devices freely (unlocked).

As a first step, Google also has provided a list of smartphones that meet these criteria. All Pixel models from Google, obviously comply with these requirements, include Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Devices outside the Pixel series are BlackBerry KeyOne and Motion, Huawei Mate 10, the entire line of P10, LG V30, G6, Motorola X4, Nokia 8, as well as most of the latest series of Sony Xperia X line.

Google itself plans to add this list of devices over time. According to some, this is Google's attempt to make Android coupled with iOS, MacOS, including Windows 10, which is often used by large companies.
