The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Cybersecurity Shared Services Office (CSSO) offers mobile cybersecurity shared services to minimize security risks to Government-Furnished Equipment (GFE) mobile devices. Government personnel and leaders rely heavily on mobile devices for executing their agency’s missions, especially while away from their offices.
To enhance mobile security, the CSSO offers two game-changing mobile cybersecurity shared services: Mobile Application Vetting (MAV) and Traveler-Verified Information Protection (T-VIP).
Mobile App Vetting (MAV)
CISA’s MAV shared service facilitates security integrity checks of government-developed and third-party mobile apps that will be used on GFE mobile devices. MAV identifies app vulnerabilities and potential risks to mobile devices while increasing app and enterprise security. The service empowers government agencies to fix discovered issues and, more critically, prevent cyber-attacks on mobile devices and enterprise systems. MAV allows agencies to make risk-based decisions on the apps they use, ensuring an extra line of defense against bad actors.

Traveler-Verified Information Protection (T-VIP)
CISA’s T-VIP shared service monitors the integrity of GFE mobile devices after travel to foreign countries, embassies, or external sites. Since government travelers cannot monitor what occurs “under the hood” of their mobile devices, comparisons of pre-travel and post-travel scans by T-VIP identify suspicious changes on the devices. T-VIP supports many newer Apple and Samsung mobile devices and can be updated to support newly introduced devices.
