We recently had HTC launch the HTCSense.com security services and now Vodafone has followed suit by providing business’ with ‘across the board’ security for smartphones. The new service called Vodafone Smartphone Professional requires an initial set-up fee and then small ongoing charge per user.
The basic concept allows users to choose any smartphone running Android, Windows or a Symbian OS and then the IT administrator is then able to control applications and features as well as remotely wiping data should the need arise. Company data such as emails, contacts and calendar information that may be exchanged over the air are also encrypted.
Vodafone Smartphone Professional is certainly another feather in Vodafone’ cap and benefits both the business with extra security and the business user who can now choose a smartphone that meets their own personal needs.
