Why Mobile Should Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Root – Slides and PDF
viaForensics CEO Andrew Hoog (@ahoog42) spoke at RSAConference 2014 in San Francisco. His presentation, titled “Why Mobile Should Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Root” focused on embracing root privileges as a benefit to mobile security.
IT departments are locked out of mobile devices without rooting or jailbreaking them, a serious obstacle to securing these devices as they have known vulnerabilities. This talk will review the history of “root” access, epic failures in the fight against such access and a path forward that will accelerate innovation, improve security and privacy controls and make (mobile) life better for everyone.
