Issue



Is Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile Edition supported on Google's Android platform?  What Symantec product will protect an Android smartphone?


Solution



Deatils on Symantec's enterprise security solution for Android can be found in the article What's new in Symantec Mobile Security 7.2.

For comprehensive management of mobile devices, Symantec Mobile Management (SMM) is the best choice.  SMM supports iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and Symbian devices all through a single management platform.  This is a product with features such as software deployment, management of password policies, remote wipe, and control over device features.  SMM integrates with Symantec Mobile Security products like SEPME 6. It has some security capabilities, but at this time cannot roll out an anti-malware client for iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry.
