About Graphite Software’s Secure Spaces
Secure Spaces is an Android virtualization platform that enables multiple virtual devices or “Spaces” to co-exist on a single device – such as a Personal Space, a Kids Space, a Work Space and a Secure Banking Space. This addresses not only fundamental Android security and privacy issues but it also enables Spaces to provide different user experiences in terms of apps, wallpapers, launchers and unique Space security settings, which leads to new forms of app discovery and distribution. Like the material graphite, Secure Spaces is strong and lightweight – there is no impact in device performance compared to previous virtualization technologies.
