    Default Google Apps - Manage your Android device, including remote wipe

    For devices running Android 2.2, you can now use Google Apps in your browser to do things like:
    * remote data wipe for lost or stolen devices
    * lock idle devices after inactivity
    * require a password on each phone
    * set minimum lengths for passwords
    * require passwords to include letters and numbers

    This is a good integration of Android phones with Google Apps, promoting both to public.

    With over 200,000 devices activated each day, Android is seeing rapid adoption, and today we are launching new administrative controls that make it possible to securely manage these devices in the Google Apps environment. With this launch, Google Apps provides a comprehensive mobility solution for all major mobile platforms. You can manage most mobile devices right from the browser, without having to deploy dedicated servers.

    Many Android devices feature tight integration with Google Apps, including native applications for Gmail, Google Talk, and Google Calendar, as well as mobile access to Google Docs. Now any employee with an Android device running version 2.2 - personal or company-issued - can access their corporate information while allowing administrators to enforce data security policies such as:
    Remotely wipe all data from lost or stolen mobile devices
    Lock idle devices after a period of inactivity
    Require a device password on each phone
    Set minimum lengths for more secure passwords
    Require passwords to include letters and numbers
    When the employee leaves the company, the administrator can withdraw access to corporate info, which allows the employee to continue to use their device if it’s their own

    These policies can be enforced on devices that have installed the Google Apps Device Policy application, which will be available from Android Market in the next few days. They will be available free to all Google Apps Premier and Education Edition customers in the next few days, and can be accessed from the 'Mobile' tab under 'Service Settings' in the Google Apps control panel.
