Dell creates Virtual Smartphone app for Android, iOS phones

For years, businesses and employees alike have wrestled with the problem of bringing personal phones into the workplace. Now, Dell's enterprise team has created a Virtual Smartphone app that provides secure calls, texts, and apps for Android and iOS alike.

Dell's Virtual Smartphone app is designed to protect company data and call activity on personal phones. Neither Google nor Apple has really addressed the fundamental problem of the so-called BYOD movement: providing a secured data store to keep business data safe while preserving user contacts and photos. Employees that bring personal phones to work and use them to access business data risk having them remotely erased if they're fired or leave the company.

The Virtual Smartphone app (also known as Dell Business Phone powered by Vonage Business Solutions) is provided in conjunction with Vonage, whose VOIP services will power the phone.
