High-End Smartphone Maker Chooses Zimperium For Continuous Threat Detection That Doesn’t Impact User Experience
SAN FRANCISCO – June 1, 2016 – Zimperium, Inc. has announced that its intrusion prevention system technology, zIPS™, was integrated into SOLARIN, released today. SOLARIN is a smartphone built “for the international business person who carries a lot of sensitive information but doesn’t want to compromise on usability, quality or design.” Built by SIRIN LABS, SOLARIN has been in research & development for the past two years, incorporates military-grade security features, and will utilize zIPS™ for continuous on-device detection of both known and unknown threats.
“In building the most secure smartphone with an unparalleled user experience, we had to scour the globe for the best of the best technologies,” said Fredrik Öijer, VP of product. “That’s why we incorporated Zimperium’s zIPS™ into SOLARIN, to root out all threats whether known or unknown. The Zimperium team has been a collaborative, responsive and trustworthy partner, and their technology is a cut above the rest in detecting and mitigating today’s sophisticated and targeted mobile attacks. Zimperium was critical in our vision to deliver the world’s first truly smart phone.”
SOLARIN integrates Zimperium’s zIPS™ to thwart the broadest array of advanced device, network and application cyberattacks. SOLARIN also offers chip-to-chip 256-bit AES encryption, the same technology that militaries around the world use to protect their communications, and a “Security Switch” on the back of the handset that activates fully encrypted calls and messages. The result is a smartphone with unrivaled privacy and security performance.
“SIRIN LABS’ intense focus on security in the design of SOLARIN is a signal that mobile security is escalating from a lingering afterthought to a priority across all stakeholders,” said Shridhar Mittal, CEO of Zimperium. “The stringent requirements SIRIN LABS employed to build SOLARIN have resulted in a truly next-generation smartphone, and this integration further establishes Zimperium’s technology as the defacto standard in robust mobile threat protection.”
As mobile device threats continue to grow, security dependent on signature-based detection isn’t enough to secure critical data. Zimperium’s zIPS™ uses patented machine learning technology to continuously monitor the entire device for malicious behavior and protect against cybercriminals in real time. No Internet connection is required, which means privacy and security is always maintained and users are protected even when in roaming or airplane mode.
"Protecting high-net worth individuals, celebrities and VIPs is an extremely challenging security feat, because in many cases attackers are using highly sophisticated, targeted methods to infiltrate such people,” said Zuk Avraham, founder, chairman and CTO at Zimperium. “SIRIN LABS and Zimperium's partnership is great news for those who are most sensitive about their data and privacy. This integration positions us side-by-side with some of the most robust security technologies in the world.”
