Thanks to the National Security Agency, there is now a security enhanced version of Android. This project is designed for agencies with strict access-control policies, such as the Defense Department, according to ComputerWorld.

The biggest enhancement is the ability for users to restrict the resources available to applications. In turn, this feature will help minimize the damage if the device gets hacked. The installation could be a bit tricky though. You'll want to visit the SE Android website to be sure you get all the steps right.
