    LG has a couple of new "bona fides" worth bragging about. They just made it through the bureaucratic red tape necessary to be certified for U.S. government enterprise and military use. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    "In this case, it was the US National Information Assurance Partnership or NIAP that gave the thumbs up to two of LG's latest smartphones, the LG G5 and theLG V10. The NIAP has deemed that these two flagships have met the criteria that it has set for security conformance. Luckily for LG, those criteria are also recognized by countries like the UK, Canada, France, Germany, India, Japan, and South Korea, just to name some.

    LG credits this achievement to the LG GATE technology it launched last 2013. GATE stands for Guarded Access To Enterprise and is a security platform that increases a smartphone's defenses against hacking and also gives enterprises and government more control over device management. In short, it was LG's foray into the BYOD scene, where the likes of BlackBerry, Apple, and Samsung are also fiercely competing." ~ SlashGear

    This adds a bit more legitimacy to LG's products. We can't blame them for wanting to share this info. Here's our dedicated sections for further discussion on both of these devices:
