LAS VEGAS--With more and more personal devices making their way into the workplace, IT departments world over are having a difficult time managing employee data.
LG and VMWare have come up with a fix to solve the problem, however, showing off a demo at CES which would allow people to merge both their work and personal device into one phone, simply by partitioning the phone and sandboxing off the work part using virtualization software.
The partnership is focused on running virtual Android machines on a smartphone, allowing a company’s IT department full control over the work side of a device, while a user retains full control over their personal phone usage, including apps, email and internet browsing.
Both Verizon and Telefonica will be launching phones with the capabilities in the next few months, and if successful, it could mean that carrying two devices around becomes an unnecessary task of the past.
