The NIAP uses the internationally recognized Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme to evaluate conformity with security standards in 25 different countries, including the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, India, Japan, South Korea and the United Kingdom.
LG mentions that a big part of the device security on the G5 and V10 comes from using LG's GATE (Guarded Access To Enterprise) technology, which strengthens and enhances platform and application security as well as network security. GATE was developed in 2013 and provides mobile device management and hacking protection for phones using the service. Android for Work also leverages GATE networking capabilities to separate work and personal applications.
