Xperia™ is now in business with enhancements to the Android™ security solution

To ensure that that we offer the demanded level of security on devices and in data transmission has been a key priority for our software team. Having made Sony Mobile enhancements to the existing Android solution, which is based on a proven Linux™ kernel, we now provide a stable and secure platform for business communications. Read on to find out more!

In unison with the recent announcement of the Xperia™ Z1 we published our new Xperia in Business web portal for the first time. Through the content on those pages, which includes detailed Xperia in Business White papers, we’re able to showcase the business capabilities of our new hero product and other products that meet business criteria.

The developments we’ve made in security can be categorised into four areas; System Security, Secure Storage, Network Security and Device Security. Here we’ll take a closer look at each of those areas in more detail.

System security
Using the Linux based Android OS, we’ve taken advantage of the existing level of security which is provided through the Android Application Sandbox, ensuring the isolation of app data and code from other apps. Apps cannot interact with each other and have limited access to the OS, resulting in sensitive information being protected.

Secure Storage
With protection from passwords, PIN codes and screen unlock patterns, data is kept safe. To enhance the security in this area our engineers have also made sure that we have encryption capabilities, making the data unreadable to anyone but the intended user. The Xperia™ Z1 offers 256-bit AES encryption for all the data in the internal memory and also on the external SD card. This guarantees strong protection, and if the device we’re lost or stolen it could be remotely locked or wiped.

Network Security
We know that businesses expect to be able to use corporate networks wherever they are whilst also keeping data protected. So we’ve ensured secure connections through a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 2.0 and 3.0, and Transport Layer Security (TLS v.10, v1.1 andv1.2). There is also support for StartTLS with IMAP/POP3 accounts. Whether using mobile networks, VPN or Wi-Fi, confidential information is kept safe.

Device Security
Again the screen lock combined with a passcode (a PIN or an alphanumeric password) is the first security barrier in preventing unauthorised users from gaining access to the device. In addition we’ve made these devices compatible with leading MDM providers, meaning that policies can be enforced over-the-air via an MDM solution or by using Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync®.

We’re very excited by the developments our teams have made, as we know this makes our devices secure and optimised for business.
