Device Testing

Laptop and Mobile Device Security Reviews

A security review of a company laptop or mobile device requires a tester to assess the security of the device hardware, operating system, applications and locally stored data for potential vulnerabilities. The ultimate goal is to see if sensitive data can be accessed locally or externally - typically from the perspective that the device is lost or has been stolen.

Why do you need a laptop/mobile device security review?

Mobile devices, are being increasingly adopted by large organisations and SMEs for their portability, functionality, and improving support for existing internet technologies. If such devices are lost or stolen, it is critical that the interception of such a device cannot pose a risk of data leakage or unauthorised access to corporate network resources.

How can we help you?

Company laptops and smart phones can have the same privileged access to business data resources as a desktop connected to the internal corporate network. Internal security policies often cannot map fully onto mobile devices and therefore such devices can be exposed to risk. Business laptops and mobile devices typically have trust relationships with the corporate network. As part of our testing methodology, we attempt to subvert or elevate any available privileges to gain access to data and services - reporting any entry points or opportunities for further attacks.
