The Android platform BizzTrust provides companies and public institutions with security for smartphones and tablets. BizzTrust is based on a hardened security kernel that provides protection against attacks such as zero-day exploits by employing additional state-of-the-art security mechanisms, security services and finely granular access rules. Optionally, BizzTrust supports smart cards for the protection of long-term keys. BizzTrust is completely compatible with Android and therefore allows the use of any Android app in both security areas.
The separation between a “Restricted” and an “Open” area enables secure access to business resources. Applications inside the “Restricted” area can exchange data with each other and access company resources such as e-mails, contacts, calendars and the intranet via a secure VPN tunnel. Optionally, the “Open” area can access the intranet via a corporate firewall that filters dangerous content. All data that is exchanged by smartphones and corporate network is protected against unauthorized access by secure encryption.
BizzTrust also encrypts telephone calls to the headquarters and to company-owned smartphones and is compatible with the Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity voice and chat solution. The flexibility of a smartphone is always maintained. In the “Open” area, users can install their preferred apps (e.g. via Google Play Store), without affecting the security of the corporate network.
The TrustedObjects Manager is used as a management component and offers not only EMM and MDM functions but also an enterprise app store that is controlled by a central rules management. Android apps can be installed exclusively via the enterprise store or in combination with a conventional app store.
