Protecting corporate data on non-compliant managed Android devices

The Google Apps Device Policy app enforces your organization’s security policies on employees’ managed Android devices, protecting them and making them safer. If a security policy is violated, it’s especially important to ensure that corporate data isn’t accessible on that device until it’s once again compliant.

With that in mind, the Device Policy app will now disable access to non-critical apps* on any work profile or company-owned Android device that it determines is non-compliant. Users will see a notification informing them that their device violated a security policy and some apps may be disabled. Those apps will be re-enabled when their device complies with all of the organization’s security policies.

*Non-critical apps are any apps that aren’t required for a device to function. For example, Dialer is a critical app, but Gmail is a non-critical app.
