Google offers zero-touch enrollment to simplify enterprise Android deployments

Google introduced the Zero-Touch Enrollment service today where companies can tell Google their requirements and the devices will come with the pre-set configurations.

Google's looking to make it easier and safer for enterprises to get new Android devices into the hands of employees with Thursday's introduction of an automated device enrollment option. Zero-Touch Enrollment is available only for select carrier partners.

Basically, this means that the devices are good to go the moment they are unboxed.

Zero-touch enrollment removes the need for users to configure their devices manually and ensures that devices always have corporate policies in place. And to kick things off, zero-touch is only available on Google's own Pixel phones through Verizon in the USA, from today. With Android devices under this program, employees just need to sign-in to access their work apps and data. Among the other vendors participating are Samsung, Huawei, Sony, LG, Nokia, Motorola, HTC, and BlackBerry.

"For our business customers, deploying new devices and services securely with the ability to enforce device-specific policies is critical for protecting proprietary information and an organization's brand", said Ryan O'Shea, vice president of national business channels at Verizon Wireless. The Sony Xperia XZ1/XZ1 Compact and Huawei Mate 10 will be among the first to support the feature.

Custom configuration under the program can be done at the carrier level, Google has partnered with the leading carriers AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon in the United States, along major carriers from Europe and Asia.

Zero-touch enrollment is also integrated with many enterprise mobility management solutions, including VMware AirWatch, BlackBerry, MobileIron, IBM, SOTI and Google's own G Suite.

Usually when a company purchases smartphones (or computers) for use by employees, there's a long setup process involved.

"Samsung will continue to offer Knox Mobile Enrollment (KME) on Samsung devices, including pre-Oreo devices".
