Ashburn, VA. – November 23, 2021 — CIS Mobile today announced it is the recipient of a Gold Award for Best Mobile Technology Solution for its altOS platform in the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards from American Security Today.

American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, which recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness – Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to keep the nation secure.

“We are honored to be recognized by American Security Today for our altOS platform and the work we do to keep government facilities and mission-critical workers safe and secure,” says Bill Anderson, President, CIS Mobile.

Mobile devices are essential tools for worker productivity, but for those government agencies and their employees who regularly deal with high security situations, they can also represent a significant threat that jeopardizes both the integrity of the information they contain and the lives of those using them.

“With security on the line, government agencies must make certain employees’ devices have been modified in a way that guarantees absolute control over both access and the various signals those devices may be sending, with or without your knowledge or permission,” Anderson added.

CIS Mobile’s altOS is a mobile platform for Android-based smartphones that enables the government to fully control the device, and not the other way around. altOS replaces the original unsecure operating system on the smartphone, and the altOS management server lets the customer manage those devices.
