For many years now Microsoft systems have been ruling the computing world. However, lately, Google’s Android platform has taken over as the standard operating system for enterprises. But the battle between the two is not even close.
Some of the reasons for Android’s precedency is its pricing, its seamless compatibility with smart technologies and new tools, and the fact that more and more enterprise applications are being released specifically for Android devices. However, this is not just it. The main reason behind Android outweighing all other competitors and being ahead of the curve is the level of security and support it provides. And it seems that Microsoft does not want to fight back and compete in this industry, as it announced its plan to end support for mobile devices that run its software.
Security is a top priority for businesses nowadays and sensitive data have to be expertly guarded. Without the support of Windows anymore more companies are turning to Android without a second thought. But once you make the decision to move to Android, you need a company to support and keep your data protected even after Google reaches the end of its support and stops issuing security patches.
