Mobile Device Security
Modern mobile devices are highly portable and contain vast amounts of corporate and personal information, including text, location, sound and video. They are often not protected by passwords and are more vulnerable to theft than traditional workstations and laptops.
Mobile device security assessments provide assurance that a device is safe to use in the home or workspace, and provide recommendation on how to configure them in a secure way. Context have a proven track record in performing these assessments on smart phones, tablets and phablets including Apple, BlackBerry, Android and Windows based devices for government, telecommunications companies and large businesses.
Assessments involve a consultant trying to compromise the
device and identify weaknesses in the shipped device configuration that expose
it to attack. They will try to extract information from the device itself, or
intercept data in transit.
The assessment report describes the overall security stance of the device and how it can be further locked down, or a review of a pre-specified configuration, allowing an organisation to better understand the risks involved with deploying the mobile device under assessment.
Context also contributes towards CESG guidance material supplied to public sector organisations when deploying end user devices for remote working. For more information please visit:
