Seeking some phone input from the experts (that's you guys) because Google has given me nothing but conflicting and outdated information. A client of ours is the US division of a well known International Organization. Staff members from their US office travel frequently around the world and, as part of a new "Travel Security Policy," they will be required to take company issued phones with them when they travel internationally (previously, this was optional). This company, without consulting us first, just purchased a bunch of cheap Androids on Amazon and they all tested positive for Chinese malware.
What are some of the most secure phone choices for a mid-sized office environment? Our only requirement is that they support dual-sim cards. We have JT Global sim cards to use in them and we would expect staff members to procure local SIM cards upon their arrival in their destination countries.
They say cost is an issue but I would rather recommend a good, secure, expensive solution that won't wind up getting them sued out of existence due to a data breach than to recommend a crappy phone that feeds all their data to organized crime or to some punk in his mom's basement.
The dual SIM market is dominated by Chinese phones. Offerings by trusted vendors such as Huawei or OnePlus are still acceptable, unless you are dealing with national security related businesses.
Alternatives are the Samsung and Nokia, with later being my pick, primarily due to that firm's long association with IT security industry.

Ah, this is obviously some strange usage of the word "trusted" that I wasn't
previously aware of ...
Lest folks not understand Grandpa Rob' comment, please see the following articles:
or simply search the web for "Huawei U.S. government"
I always suggest Cryptophone from ESD America. It is a truly secure phone with high encryption, with best voice quality and with baseband firewall. It protects against any eavesdropping, man-in-the-middle attack and protects against SS7 Vulnerabilities.
Might want to reconsider Nokia
They have been made obsolete through the actions of the "White House":
