Mobile security for U.S. federal agencies is high priority, even more so as the recent shift to telework has increased incidences of employees accessing sensitive data through personal phones and tablets while on the go — making mobile devices a centerpiece of security and productivity workflow. Securely accessing your CAC-enabled email through your mobile phone has never been more vital.
Case in point: more than 38% of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees have government-issued mobile devices, leading the DHS to create a Mobile Device Security project to promote the safe and secure adoption of mobile technology across the federal government. With 85% of federal cybersecurity managers agreeing that mobile work increases the risk of cyber threats to their agency’s data, a secure solution is needed (and fast!) as federal government mobile phishing encounter rates rose from 17% in Q4 of 2019 to 40% in Q1 of 2020.

The complete collection of Thursby solutions support website access from an Apple or Android mobile device with strong two-factor authentication using a CAC or PIV card.
