Cyber warfare has swiftly migrated from hacking into enterprise networks and the Internet to targeting, and being triggered from, mobile devices. With the explosion in the number of connected devices, security attacks can now be launched from anywhere, targeting any place. Securing mobile devices is crucial because the same capabilities that increase our social interactions and business effectiveness can be subverted and used for unintended and unapproved uses. As a widely deployed and robust open source platform, Android
provides the ideal foundation for the integration of appropriate security controls for personal and business device protection as well as high-assurance and battlefield use cases.
