Android Security Apps for BYOD Users

A look at 8 security apps that experts recommend for Android.

Skycure Mobile Threat Defense

The Skycure Mobile Threat Defense enterprise app is designed for both consumers and the enterprise. The company uses the same free public app for both its consumer version in Google Play and its enterprise edition used by BYOD workers.

Phil Hochmuth, program director and enterprise mobility for IDC, says one of the most important features of the app is its potential ability to map unsafe public WiFi networks. The company claims its app can offer 'multi-layered' detection and analysis like user behavioral analysis, look for signatures and source origin, as well as abide by third-party blacklists.

Skycure's app is free for both consumers and enterprise users, offering such features as security alerts that the user will have to fix for themselves. A service option at $10 a month includes a console to monitor Android devices on the corporate network and more visibility into the threat landscape, Duckering says. That monthly rate could be lower with volume discounts, he notes.
