Mobile Security Solutions

Today's mobile users need more robust security to address ever-increasing threats to device security and privacy. And they need that in the form of power-efficient solutions that don’t interfere with the use of their devices. Our mobile security solutions are designed to provide exactly that: a robust, multidimensional offering of mobile security technologies, engineered for performance and efficiency in today's complex mobile environment.

Secure Foundation

Building industry leading security solutions starts with creating a very secure foundation. Already used within billions of devices, Qualcomm® Processor Security technology is based in hardware and software and is designed to provide not only a high level of security and robustness, but also high performance while maintaining power efficiency.

Secure Boot

A boot-up process designed to verify the authenticity and integrity of critical code and data. This helps prevent unauthorized modification, replacement, and execution of system stored code.

Cryptographic Accelerators

Engineered to enhance performance and security of cryptographic operations using accelerated full disk encryption.

Trusted Execution Environment

Qualcomm® Trusted Execution Environment is a controlled and separated environment outside the high-level operating system (HLOS) that is designed to allow trusted execution of code and to protect against viruses, Trojans, and root kits.

Key Provisioning Security

We provide a variety of robust methods for key provisioning security in order to best meet the varying needs of our customers.

Qualcomm Mobile Security

The Qualcomm Mobile Security suite is built with the Qualcomm Secure Processing Unit (SPU), featuring an added layer of hardware security that safeguards mobile devices with multilevel protection against security threats. The Qualcomm Mobile Security suite also includes revolutionary biometric security and real-time malware detection.

Camera Security

Using the very latest iris and facial recognition technology, camera security takes user authentication to the next level to help support safe payments and purchases.

Hardware Token

On-demand security tokens from the device to third-party backend services are designed to provide next-generation authentication and comprehensive encryption to help keep your mobile transactions confidential.

Qualcomm® Malware Protection

Qualcomm® Malware Protection uses real-time, machine learning-based malware detection, as well as hardware-based security features to better protect data on your device against attacks.

Additional security features.

Theft Deterrence with Qualcomm Device Lock Authentication

Just because a mobile device is out of sight doesn't mean it's out of a user's control. With Qualcomm® Device Lock Authentication, users of supported devices can remotely lock their mobile devices if they are lost or stolen and then unlock them in the event they’re found. Qualcomm Device Lock Authentication commands are verified by hardware, designed to make potential attacks, such as malicious locking of phones and unlocking stolen phones, less feasible.

Content Protection with Qualcomm Content Protection

Qualcomm® Content Protection utilizes Qualcomm Processor Security technology to protect premium, high-resolution video content, and helps allow users to enjoy the latest content from movie studios at higher resolution. This trusted technology is utilized by many of the leading distribution services, including Hulu, Amazon Instant Movie, Google Play, and Netflix.

Qualcomm Mobile Security, Qualcomm Processor Security, Qualcomm Trusted Execution Environment, Qualcomm Malware Protection, Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors, Qualcomm Device Lock Authentication, and Qualcomm Content Protection are products of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and/or its subsidiaries.
