Google’s Android Enterprise Recommended Programme Promises Security Updates for 3 Years


Google’s Android is the most popular mobile OS in the world but it doesn’t have a particularly great track record when it comes to long-term software upgrades and regular security updates. Apart from Google’s own Pixel range and a couple of phones from HMD Global and Motorola, OEMs rarely push out Android OTAs after 24 months of launch. For the enterprise market, all that is set to change as Google launches its new ‘Android Enterprise Recommended‘ programme. Phones under this programme can expected to get monthly security updates, within 90 days of release, for a minimum of three years.

In a blog post on Wednesday, Google announced the enterprise-focused Android Enterprise Recommended programme for devices that are said to meet “an elevated set of specifications for hardware, deployment, security updates, and user experience” helping businesses protect sensitive information from external threats.
