With time, more and more businesses are becoming comfortable with their employees using iPhones or Android phones for work, but are concerned about data security at the same time.
Professionals too worry about using the same smartphone for official and personal use simultaneously as their personal information can be seen by their superiors.
Enterproid, a mobile startup, has now come up with an application that creates a separate business profile section in the phone.
The application opens a separate interface for corporate communications including SMS, email and text messages. The corporate messages are protected by a password which are accessible to the user and IT departments only.
Personal messages, emails and SMSes are inaccessible to the IT departments.
All the enterprise features such as remote wipe tool and cloud-based device management are also there. The remote tool doesn’t delete the personal messages in the smartphone. The business profile, however, doesn’t get any app store access. The apps downloaded for personal use may be opened manually on the business profile .
The app is aptly named Divide and is available for free as it is a beta version right now. It is likely to adopt a subscription based business model once it comes out of beta.
