mobile securityThe Department of Homeland Security‘s Science and Technology Directorate has selected the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to conduct research on mobile security under a $759,727 award.

DHS said Monday the mobile technology security research and development award is part of its R&D project on mobile device security.

UNC Charlotte will study ways to secure mobile devices for the federal government through the use of mobile security management tools such as Theseus, a Web-based application that works to monitor mobile device usage patterns.

“Research in next-generation mobile security management tools will provide new technologies that will enable organizations to better understand the connection between threats and usage patterns within the mobile device,” said Vincent Sritapan, MDS program manager within DHS S&T’s cybersecurity division.

“And with these new technologies, we can accelerate the adoption of secure mobility for the department to help us succeed in our many missions.”
