Zimperium is proud to announce that we have been recognized as a Sample Vendor for the third consecutive year in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Application Security 2023 report. 

According to Gartner, “Application security is experiencing a period of intense transformation and growth. Organizations are producing their own applications and are using faster and more agile methodologies to accomplish this. In doing so, they rely on developers to secure code, rather than security practitioners.” Also, “Modern application architectures such as mobile move software logic to the front end, and place sensitive data on the devices. These architectures expose functionality that, unless shielded, can lead to attacks such as data leakage on the app or its back end, and fraudulent use or compromise of the user’s device application functionality.”

Gartner recognizes Zimperium in the Mobile Application Security Testing (M-AST) and Application Shielding categories.

  • zScan is Zimperium’s Mobile AST solution that scans application binaries to identify and help remediate vulnerabilities within mobile apps for iOS and Android devices. 
  • zShield is Zimperium’s Application Shielding solution that provides in-app security that detects and prevents reverse-engineering and tampering to protect enterprise software and applications from cloning, fraud, IP theft, and other abuses.

We believe this recognition emphasizes the highly relevant and mission-critical capabilities of the Mobile Application Protection Suite (MAPS) in our Mobile-First Security Platform. To us, having been recognized in the Gartner® Hype Cycle for Application Security 2023 report also proves our expertise and ability to build mobile apps that are compliant, secure, and resilient.
