Unsecured Devices Expand the Attack Surface
Unfortunately, for enterprises and schools relying on Chromebooks for remote working, their users still face the same privacy and security threats associated with laptops and mobile devices, but without the same, advanced security measures. From compromised or malicious extensions and applications to phishing attacks, cyber criminals are increasingly targeting Chromebooks with data theft campaigns aimed at gaining personal and private information on their target. Network attacks through compromised and rogue WiFi also remain a high risk to these devices that rely solely on internet connectivity for full functionality.
While the native framework and security of Chromebooks is capable of providing base-level protection against common threats like ransomware, risks of data threat remain high without advanced security implementations in place.
Properly configured and integrated into UEM, XDR and SIEM platforms, advanced mobile threat defense (MTD) solutions enhance existing Zero Trust controls by providing mobile device risk attestation.
As the global MTD leader, Zimperium empowers IT and security administrators to understand their mobile landscape, mitigate mobile risks and threats, and ensure the mobile devices connected to their data meet the security requirements. Specifically, Zimperium Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) – formerly known as zIPS – delivers the critical mobile device data to security teams, enabling them to provide comprehensive coverage of all connected devices.
