Yesterday, we had a post introducing the software XRY, which governments used to hack iPhone in a incredible short time. Nonetheless, the Australia government has no problems with iOS and its abilities to store sensitive government information, according to the latest report from Australia.
It was reported by Sydney Herald Sun, that Mike Burgess, who is the acting director of Defence Signals Directorate (DSD), said:
“The department has led the way in developing means to enable devices running the latest Apple operating system, called iOS version 5, to handle secret information up to Protected level.”
In addition, he mentioned:
“Embracing new technologies, such as smartphones and tablet PCs, provides government with a genuine opportunity to conduct its business more efficiently. However, the threat of government information being stolen or compromised is also very real.”
iOS 5 has turned out to be pretty darn secure. Due to this reason it has successfully passed the Australian government’s information security assessment with flying colors. Meaning iOS devices will now be used in the government sector to communicate and store classified information.
What do you think about the security of iOS system?
