Our Android 12 efforts will also extend to our native Microsoft Teams business phones, such as the C470HD and the C455HD.
But what exactly does this mean for you? Here are the Top 3 reasons why you should care:
Protect Your Business with the Latest Privacy and Security Features
As Microsoft releases regular updates for its Teams client to provide more functionality and greater usability, the MTR device it’s installed on should also be up-to-date to provide the highest possible level of security and privacy for user information. It’s important to use MTR devices that run the most recent version of the relevant operating system and that are also certified. This is crucial to prevent vulnerability and provide organisations with a trustworthy solution that prioritizes privacy and security for the longer term. Technology evolves fast, and as hybrid workplace meetings become the norm, the valuable and sensitive information discussed at those meetings needs to be kept private, for your eyes and ears only.
Android 12 delivers greater control over sensitive data due to its enhanced security features that protect the data stream from malicious attacks and keep the data stream secure. Android 12 therefore ensures that you are at the forefront of the security race by providing you with the most recent security updates. MTRs based on older operating systems may be more vulnerable to such malicious attacks. Don’t take the risk, always try to use the latest version.
Android Operating Systems (OS) Have an Expiry Date – Don’t Get Caught Out!
You may not know this, but every Android version has an expiry date, after which no more security updates can be patched to the UC client, for example, an MTR. Also, older UC clients will not support older OS versions. It’s important not to be caught out by potential operating system expiry. So, in order to be up-to-date with your MTR in terms of security and features, you will need to make sure that your existing device can support Android 12 OS. Alternatively, you will need to purchase a newer MTR with updated hardware that will support Android 12 and provide you with the most up-to-date security, support and features.
Current Android versions, such as Android 9, will expire in August 2023, followed by Android 10 expiry in July 2024. Don’t wait for your MTR OS to expire, discover Android 12 MTR with AudioCodes now.
