LG Electronics‘ G5 and V10 smartphones have received the U.S. National Information Assurance Partnership certification for conformance with international security standards.
The smartphones were assessed through NIAP’s Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme to gauge compliance with the Common Criteria international standard, LG said Thursday.
The certification is valid across 25 Common Criteria member countries including Canada, France, Germany, India, Japan, South Korea and the U.K.
“With the growing importance of higher security in business these days, we believe a firm security platform is a must for mobile workplace devices,” said Chris Yie, LG vice president and head of marketing communications for its mobile communications unit.
G5 and V10 smartphones are designed to feature LG’s Guarded Access to Enterprise platform that works to provide anti-hacking and mobile device management systems to secure corporate data, LG said.
The company further noted G5 and V10 have also attained the Defense Information Systems Agency‘s security certification to be used as official smartphones of the Defense Department and affiliated agencies.
