BSI grants preliminary approval for R&S®Trusted Mobile

The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has granted provisional approval for the mobile security solution of the IT security expert Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity up to the VS - FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY classification level. R&S Trusted Mobile enables users to work mobile while complying with the high security requirements of German federal authorities.

Munich, April 24, 2019 - Mobile devices such as smartphones have become an indispensable part of everyday private and business life. In addition, mobile devices are also becoming increasingly important for large-scale use in companies and public authorities and contribute to increasing efficiency in many cases. However, the use of mobile devices is associated with considerable security risks. This makes it easy to read out sensitive data on a smartphone. The security mechanisms provided by the devices do not offer sufficient protection and can easily be circumvented.

With R&S Trusted Mobile, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity provides a secure Android platform for smartphones that creates the prerequisites for secure use of the devices. The basis is a hardened security core that protects against attacks such as zero-day exploits through additional security mechanisms, security services and fine-grained access rules. R&S Trusted Mobile gains additional security with a strict separation into an open area and an internal restricted area. The separation also enables secure access to applications from the internal area: via a secure VPN tunnel, the user can access organizational resources such as email, contacts, calendar and intranet and exchange data. Access to external websites in the internal area is also via the organization firewall, which can filter out dangerous content. Secure encryption of all data exchanged between the smartphone and the organizational network protects all data from unauthorized access. At the same time, the flexibility of the device is maintained. In the open area, users can still install any apps, which no longer have any effect on the security of the organization network.

With the approval of the BSI, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity is now opening the use of the mobile security solution R&S Trusted Mobile, which has been on the market since 2016, to new user groups from public authorities and companies that require a secure and practicable solution for processing VS-NfD (Classified – for official use only) data.
