Mobile EDR

Zimperium Defines Mobile EDR

Gartner describes endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions as “Solutions that record and store endpoint-system-level behaviors, use various data analytics techniques to detect suspicious system behavior, provide contextual information, block malicious activity, and provide remediation suggestions to restore affected systems.”

Today’s EDR solutions are lacking something. Something major. They are lacking protection for 60% of the endpoints accessing corporate resources: mobile endpoints.

For any enterprise or government agency looking to have EDR for all endpoints, Zimperium, the clear leader in mobile EDR, is the missing ingredient for complete coverage of all endpoints.

How Hackers Are Attacking Mobile Endpoints

  • Device: Attackers’ primary goal on mobile is to fully compromise a device to be persistent and weaponize it for “land and expand” lateral movements
  • Network: Attackers use rogue access points (RAPs) and man-in-the-middle (MITMs) to steal data and also to deliver targeted exploits to compromise the device
  • Phishing: Mobile phishing, especially via text/messaging apps and personal email, is a highly-effective way to steal credentials and deliver targeted exploits
  • Apps: Malicious apps can create fraud, steal information and also deliver device exploits

Why EPP/EDR Solutions Cannot Protect Mobile Endpoints

  • Blind and ineffective due to locked down kernels in mobile OS’s
  • Have no ability to detect risky or malicious networks
  • Disabled cloud-based detection by network attackers and has privacy issues
  • Cannot assess privacy and security risks in legitimate (non-malicious) mobile apps
