Security+ Key Point
If you’re planning to take the Security+ exam, you might like to remember this key point.
Remote wipe sends a signal to a lost or stolen device to erase all data. Geolocation uses Global Positioning System (GPS) and can help locate a lost or stolen device. Geofencing creates a virtual fence or geographic boundary and can be used to detect when a device is within an organization’s property. GPS tagging adds geographical data to files such as pictures. Context-aware authentication uses multiple elements to authenticate a user and a mobile device.
This is one of the Remember This blocks from the CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide. As a study habit, I encourage readers to repeat these key points to themselves as often as possible. The more you repeat the information, the more likely you are to remember it when you take the exam.
The CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide provides additional information needed to fully understand this key point.
Also, the full text of the top selling CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide is available in the Full Security+ Course within an online course format.
