In today’s world, evil persists more than humanity and goodwill and thus, it is very important to be secure from your end. The same rule applies in the world of mobility and security has a greater role to play when enterprises look to develop mobile apps for various platforms. In terms of Android, this issue becomes even more prominent. Thus, they and their app developers should look into this matter even more seriously. We know that data storage safety for both internal as well as external storage by Android platform has a number of choices for application data management depending upon the users’ requirement. The various factors considered are whether they need private or public data storage, the space needed for data storage. Note that the personal data is stored internally in the gadget whereas the public data is stored on the exterior storage.
They also need to develop App Access Permissions to grant or deny access to a certain application on the device. Generally, Android expects that users agree to all terms and conditions if they want to access an app. However, still there are options available to control the access of a particular app when you root your smart device. Note that same Apps Access Permissions are there in Apple’s iPhone app development as well. The restricted access plays a major role in app’s security by safeguarding your links and other personal information from apps that seek access to the data that you dont wish to reveal publicly. Therefore, app development companies should come up with original and carefully planned innovations. This would be a fun activity as app developers will be free to be as much creative as they want. The same condition can be experienced in iPhone app development as well, because iPhone app development allows developers to show all the creativity they have.
Another very crucial area to secure is IP networks and telephony and here business owners are forced to provide network level security. It is extremely important in Android applications, as it can give all the updated information about securing your applications, assess the weaknesses that IP networks may cause, protects the device from every attempt of hack. It would also secure your phone from every internal and external threat caused by any internal or external entity. Thus, business owners and app developers should include this feature in every app developed by them. It is seen that business owners often develop their own Android-based enterprise mobile apps and submit them in the app store. Moreover, they make a good amount of revenue out of them because of their creativity and most importantly, security features. In the next section, we will review different security features for different measures.
In Android-based app development program, security features are infused mainly with the target of curbing down virus attacks, malware intrusions, hacking, unauthorized access, app freezing, breakdowns and other similar vulnerabilities. Security steps such as installing software like C++, Java and other are for this sole purpose only and in fact, they help a lot in securing apps on Android smart phones.
Moreover, in Android smart phones, these security measures actually help a lot in neutralizing their security issues. For example, the Android Sandbox app is designed to separate app data and system execution from all other functionalities of Android phones.
In short, a high level assessment and preparation is required before starting to develop Android based enterprise mobile apps that would protect your corporate data, ensure user safety while using these apps and promote sales like never before.
