LG G4 Receives U.S. Government Security Certification

LG’s GATE Platform Enhances Security for Android Business Community

Bringing government-grade security to the corporate workplace, LG has announced that its new flagship LG G4 smartphone has passed the security certification evaluated by the U.S. National Security Agency’s National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP).

With this new certification, the LG G4 meets the international security standards of a number of governments and meets the U.S. government’s security requirements for Cryptographic Modules of both data-at-rest and data-in-transit, making it ready for the corporate environment with government-grade security.

NIAP certification is recognized by 25 Common Criteria member countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Korea and the United Kingdom. The full membership list can be found at commoncriteriaportal.org/ccra/members.

In order to enable secure, reliable access to enterprise data, the LG G4 comes equipped with LG “GATE,” which offers corporations enhanced technologies in platform security, network security, application security and Mobile Device Management (MDM). These layered security components help to maintain the integrity of software components, strengthening system protection and safeguarding corporate data without compromising security or sacrificing performance.

“With LG G4’s NIAP certifications, we are bringing peace of mind to both corporate IT managers and employees, offering a secure Android option for the workplace,” said Chris Yie, vice president and head of marketing communications, LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

“With its powerful capabilities and government-grade security, LG GATE makes the LG G4 a secure and efficient mobile work device.”

Since 2013, LG has enhanced its technological capabilities in smartphone security based on LG GATE, an enterprise-level platform for businesses LG had developed, and now once again proved its technological superiority. LG GATE not only increases accessibility to enterprise server information, but also provides a variety of security solutions, such as anti-hacking system for enterprise software, and mobile device management functions for smartphones.

The LG G4’s predecessor, LG G3, received the certification from NIAP last November, and also passed additional security test requested by Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG). This qualified the LG G3 for use as an official smartphone of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD)-affiliated agencies. The LG G4 is currently under U.S. DoD’s security certification review.

NIAP is an affiliate of the National Security Agency (NSA), the U.S. federal security accreditation body that administers the globally recognized Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS) to evaluate security conformance with the Common Criteria international standard.
