Fragmentation and security flaws cause major corporate user to ban Android handsets
Reportedly, it is the security issue that plagues Jelly Bean devices that caused a “major corporate user” to ban any Android handsets from being used by its employers. A representative of the company told iTWire that it just prefers to support iOS 8.x and Windows Phone 8.x handsets, instead of “coping with managing the plethora of android devices and apps”.
It is a fact that there have been malware-infected apps on the Play Store before, and that Jelly Bean is still the most widely distributed Android build. Google did say that it will not be fixing security flaws below 4.4 KitKat, but will leave that up to manufacturers (and we all know how that goes). On the flip side, the company seems to be making an effort to better the quality of content it has on its Play Store, as it has now implemented a new review process for apps, but, unfortunately, the whole fragmentation issue doesn't seem to have an easy fix.
