As mobile technology evolves, so does the need for mobile device security. Mobile device security features protect data, including sensitive and private information, on mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Learn about screen lock security features such as facial recognition, PIN codes, fingerprint, pattern, and swipe devices. Discover the benefits of remote wiping features, locator applications, and device encryption. Next, explore how operating system updates can help secure devices and patch vulnerabilities. Then discover features of remote backup applications, firewalls, and mobile anti-virus and anti-malware solutions. Lastly, you'll get an overview of policies and procedures as they relate to BYOD, profile security requirements, and Internet of Things (IoT) security. Upon completion of this course, you'll be able to outline common methods for securing mobile and embedded devices. This course is part of a series that will help you prepare for the CompTIA A+ Core 2 (220-1102) certification exam.
