  2. 2. Especially with the popularity of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) But a question arises about the security of these devices…
  3. 3. So we are here to answer which Mobile Operating System is Most Secure, iOS, Android, or Windows?
  4. 4. iOS Enterprise Security
  5. 5. iOS • Proprietary system that Apple controls • Strict app store requirements • Solely runs on Apple devices o Compared to Android that lives on multiple manufacturers
  6. 6. iOS 10 Release PROS • Improvements on Mobile Device Management o Businesses can ‘bake in’ policies • Set up accounts from the get-go and manage even after employees leave
  7. 7. iOS 10 Release CONS • Since the release in Sept, a security flaw has already been found o Apple added an alternative password verification to iOS 10 which weakened the security of local backups in iTunes o This compromise opened the door for keychain (Apple’s password manager) to be decrypted • A large number of mobile users own Apple devices, making it a large target
  8. 8. Android Enterprise Security
  9. 9. Android • Operates with open source code • Developed by Google • Lower fees and checks for apps submitted to the store • Google uses Google Bouncer malware scanner to watch over and scan applications available in the Google Play Store
  10. 10. Android for work • Introduced in September, 2015 • Separates work and play on the Android OS through dual personals • If lost or stolen, IT can erase your work apps • Dedicated work profile ensures IT won’t erase your personal emails, photos etc. • Same user experience for work apps

  13. 13. Windows Enterprise Security
  14. 14. Windows • Microsoft Enterprise Mobility is the platform that supports organizational security • Human reviews of submitted applications to the store o Does not take as long/strenuous as Apple
  15. 15. Microsoft Enterprise Mobility • Connects to on-premises datacenter • Manage and protect iOS, Android, Windows, Windows 10 and over 2,500 popular SaaS apps • With desktop virtualization users can run windows desktops and apps anywhere
  16. 16. Microsoft Enterprise Mobility • Protects Microsoft Office email, files and apps • Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) helps identify breaches and threats using behavioral analysis o ATA continuously learns from the behavior of organizations and improves its process
  17. 17. Windows 10 PROS • Device encryption for local content • Small market share, lower probability of being attacked • Businesses can implement secure access to resources with Microsoft Passport o Allows strong authentication with multi-factor credentials used with Active Directory, Azure and MS Account service for single sign-on • With Device Guard, only signed and trusted applications can run on the device which blocks any potential harmful applications
  18. 18. Windows 10 CONS • A lof of Windows mobile 10’s shortcomings are due to lack of features not related to security • As more users adapt to this OS, more vulnerabilities are found
  19. 19. And the winner is…
  20. 20. Why Windows? • Must be noted that it is the least utilized OS of the three… • BUT its Microsoft Enterprise Mobility platform is built with security in mind • The Advanced Threat Analytics system learns from specific organization’s habits and patterns of work o Paired with comprehensive threat detection and alerts o Attack timeline surfaces the important info showing the who, what, when, and how
  21. 21. Why Windows? • They have built on the Windows 8 infrastructure which was already secure, and brought improvements that were made popular by their desktop OS Windows 10 to the mobile environment. • Apple has made several security improvements on their OS with the release of iOS 10, and Android has improved on security flaws that have plagued them in the past. • With Apple and Android being the main target for attackers, it is a safer bet at this time to side with a mobile OS platform that makes up about 2% of market share.
