Security of Portable Devices

Security of Portable Devices

Security risks commonly occur among portable devices like smartphones, laptops, and tablets, too. These gadgets offer many possibilities to reveal weaknesses of a security system. Indeed, dealing with security of mobile devices is the latest and newly-formed area of ICT security which cannot be underestimated!

Following aspects are taken into consideration during testing:

  • leakage of sensitive information,
  • access to an intranet,
  • operating system/firmware vulnerabilities,
  • bluetooth implementation vulnerabilities.

Portable Devices Security Testing Outcome

The outcome of security testing of portable devices is a final report. You’ll become familiar with a description of testing methods in detail. You’ll also get to know software use, detected weaknesses and a description of countermeasures leading to removal of identified problems and weak points.

Certainly, this is not the end of our job and we’ll be glad to counsel on how to correct the problems and prevent unwanted penetration, especially in case of important information, from happening.
