Silent Circle and its Silent OS-powered Blackphone 2 has joined Google's Android for Work program "as part of its ongoing mission to deliver enterprise privacy."

For many companies and individuals, privacy is a very delicate matter and most of today's smartphones and wearables face security issues quite often. Silent Circle is one of those companies who value their users' privacy, and the next-gen Blackphone 2 handset comes with the company's custom Android-based mobile operating system, namely Silent OS.

The Swiss company announced yesterday that its second Blackphone handset "will be its inaugural product in Google's Android for Work program." Android for Work has been announced by Google earlier this year, and its goal is to offer simple management and enhanced security for user devices in business environments. 

According to the official press release, "The participation in Android for Work marks the continued expansion of Silent Circle's enterprise privacy platform, a unique combination of software, services, and devices working together to integrate privacy at every level of business." Silent Circle is notorious for its "privacy without compromise" approach and promises to launch the Blackphone 2 this fall, its release also marking the introduction of Google Play and Google Mobile Services support to Silent OS.

As usual, more details can be found in the press release below.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
