DSD certification confirms sandboxing is Good for mobile security

The certification of a mobile-security sandboxing platform from Good Technology to EAL4+ standards will pave the way for the use of application-isolation techniques to secure mobile and bring your own device (BYOD) rollouts across Australian businesses and government organisations.

Mobile vendor Good Technology announced this week that its Good for Enterprise (GFE) mobile device management (MDM) platform – which allows the creation of virtual ‘containers’ that enable users of mobile devices to securely access networked applications and devices – had achieved Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 4 Augmented (EAL4+) certification that permits its use across a broad range of high-security applications.

GFE, which is now listed on the Defence Signals Directorate’s Evaluated Products List (EPL), runs on both iOS and Android and includes mobile client, MDM and a secure messaging exchange server through the Good Mobile Control, Good Mobile Messaging, and Good Mobile Access elements
