altOS on Pixel 3a Smartphones - CIS MobileAshburn, VA – February 5, 2020 – CIS Mobile, an Acorn Growth Company and a leader in mobile security, today announced the availability of altOS on Pixel 3a and 3a XL smartphones. This advance gives government customers the ability to protect sensitive data by deploying the industry-leading altOS secure mobility platform onto these inexpensive, appealing, and high-performance smartphones.

“Pixel phones are very appealing to customers who want to blend in with regular phone users around the world, but who need the special security controls and capabilities of a government-grade platform,” said Bill Anderson, President of CIS Mobile. “The Pixel 3a has the same features, convenience, and performance as flagship alternatives without the $1000-plus price tag. It’s also a smart solution for limited government budgets.”

The CIS Mobile platform, altOS, is an alternative operating system based on Android and designed with the extra security capabilities and controls needed for sensitive government use cases. CIS Mobile installs altOS on the Pixel phones in our secure facilities to ensure a hardware-backed root of trust for the whole platform.
