Are you exposed to security risks? 

Security has never been a bigger priority.

As we’ve seen all too vividly of late, a cyberattack can cause major damage to reputation, customer trust, and, your bottom line. Outdated IT systems leave the door open for hackers and cyber criminals. And the mobile space could be the next target.

Enterprises need to be proactive to understand the security risk and take the appropriate proactive and defensive measures that protect your data, your devices and gives you peace of mind.

LifeGuard™ for Android™ is Zebra’s software security solution that extends the lifecycle of Zebra Android enterprise mobile computers. It adds years of OS security support to bring your devices into line with the enterprise hardware lifecycle, helping your business significantly lower total cost of ownership.
