Motorola has announced that its ThinkShield for mobile security system has acquired FIPS 140-2 certification from the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) proving that the solution provides a high level of encryption to protect user data on Motorola phones. ThinkShield for mobile is a multi-layered security solution that is backed by hardware to deliver secure boot and hardware root of trust as well as elevated security features in Android.
With ThinkShield in place, supported Motorola handsets are protected against an array of threats including malware, phishing, and network attacks. While the solution is secure enough for businesses to use, it’s also great for people in their personal lives. As the features are all built-in, customers do not need to configure ThinkShield to receive protection. Some of the latest devices that come with this security are the Moto G100, Moto G30, Motorola One 5G, and the Motorola One 5G Ace.
Commenting on the news, Sudhir Chadaga, Chief Strategy Officer at Motorola, said:
“We are very proud to achieve this milestone for our Motorola products. It proves that we are well positioned to provide peace of mind to our customers in this world of ever-increasing mobile threats. With ThinkShield for mobile, we offer a comprehensive suite of security and device management solutions, from built-in security to advanced AI-based threat defense.”
With the new certification, customers can be assured that their devices are protected against being cracked, modified, or tampered with. To receive the certification, the firm had to go through rigorous third-party testing and a validation process to ensure the standards were met. The devices included in the validation process were Motorola smartphones running Android 11 with Snapdragon processors.
