Make the switch. Now.

Support for Windows CE 6.0 and Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 has ended. Supply chain, warehouse, retail and field service companies that are still running this OS are unknowingly leaving their operations with increased security risk. There are no updates, patches, or fixes available in the case of a breach.

The only upgrade path is to Android which has become the gold standard OS in the Enterprise.

Of course this comes with both hardware and software considerations. This may seem very daunting but it’s not. For hardware there are an increasing number of Android Enterprise Recommended devices to choose from WizyEMM’s OEM Partners.
