LG's G5 and V10 have their security features approved by the U.S. government

LG is going after advanced security to boost its flagship handsets' appeal. The company proclaimed that its G5 and V10 powerhouse phones have been certified by the U.S. National Information Assurance Partnership for compliance in meeting international security standards in corporate environments. According to LG, this means its smartphones are among the most secure mobile devices on the market.

LG's G5 and V10 feature LG GATE (Guarded Access to Enterprise) technology for enhanced platform, network, and application security designed for worry-free access to enterprise data. Paired with Google's Android for Work platform, LG's phones can separate and secure work apps from personal apps, reducing the possibility of malicious code compromising sensitive data.

While securing the government certificate is a sensible marketing move for LG, Samsung has had its KNOX-equipped flagship mobile devices certified by the UNIAP for a number of years now. They correspond to the organization's Mobile Device Fundamentals Protection Profile (MDFPP), which includes over 80 essential core device security requirements, such as Key Management, Crypto Module, Device Encryption, WiFi Security, Screen Lock and Mobile Device Management (MDM). However, LG isn't merely playing catch-up, for its former flagship smartphones, the LG G3 and LG G4, have also gained U.S. government validation.
