Mobiliya, a mobile solutions company, has launched Mobiliya KratOS — a custom read-only memory (ROM) based on Android for differentiated devices such as smartphones, tablets, smart glasses and ruggedized devices.

Built on top of Android and enhanced with advanced device management capabilities, virtual private network (VPN), application security, data encryption and a collection of customized consumer-centric applications, Mobiliya KratOS provides regular updates for both consumer and enterprise features along with bloat-free performance to secure and manage devices, according to the company.


Mobiliya KratOS enables OEMs and ODMs to develop new Android-powered devices targeted at both consumers and enterprise users. Features like secure workspace, remote locking and wiping, remote app installation and uninstallation, camera and Bluetooth blocks are some of the most popular enhancements from Mobiliya KratOS.
With personalisation, a regionalisation framework and software development kit (SDK) for third party app integration, Mobiliya KratOS is adapted to vertical-specific Android devices such as point-of-sale systems, automobiles, set-top boxes and smart TVs.
The company has partnered with Wham! Mobile to release the first set of devices enabled by the custom ROM in India to introduce novel features to the Indian market – including personal safety, family controls, anti-theft and a host of regional customisation features.

“We were looking for software differentiation in the Indian market, which became extremely chaotic over the past couple of years,” said Subhash Chandra, managing director of Wham! Mobiles
. “We wanted to create a unified-user experience across Wham! Branded devices and decided to go for a custom ROM. Mobiliya KratOS fit everything we needed with consumer-and security-focused features like Child Mode, Anti-Theft, Parental Control, Women Safety, Map Me, etc.”
