Corporate use of Android devices grows but Apple still leads

Enterprise mobile security company Good Technology has published its device activation report for the second quarter of 2012. The report, which includes details of the smartphones, tablets and operating systems used by its business customers, shows that Android activations increased in Q2 2012 while iOS activations fell.

Android activations increased to 28.3% overall, while iOS activations dropped from 79.9% in the previous quarter to 70.8%. When it comes to smartphones, Apple’s iOS was responsible for 61.9% of all Good Technology activations,  Android took 36.9% and Windows Phone had 1.2%. The Apple iPad dominated the tablet segment with 94.5% of Q2 activations.

Overall, the Apple iPhone 4S was the top consumer device seen in the corporate environment.

Andy Jacques, Good Technology’s General Manager for EMEA, said “Mobility is not simply another device for IT to support or hurdle to overcome. Rather, it’s a much broader shift to new way to empower employees, customers and partners with new applications to connect and collaborate as never before. Our device activations report shows that more and more of our customers - across all industries - are really embracing mobility as a new strategy for boosting productivity and business insight. We expect to see continued growth of support for iOS, Android and Windows platforms in Q3 as more of these devices come to market and our customers continue to expand their enterprise mobility programmes.”

Good Technology’s customers currently include more than 4,000 organisations worldwide.
