Zimperium Mobile Threat Defense provides enterprises the following solutions to defend the modern mobile workplace:

  • zIPS™, the world’s first mobile intrusion prevention system (Mobile IPS) that defends devices against both network and host cyberattacks wherever they go.
  • zCONSOLE™, a mobile threat management platform to monitor security incidents on zIPS™-protected mobile devices with unprecedented forensic detail.
  • zANTI™, a mobile penetration testing toolkit that lets security managers assess the risk level of a network with the push of a button, and even simulates an advanced attacker to identify the techniques they can use to compromise the corporate network.

zIPS™’ on-device mobile security solution uses behavior-based analytics to detect network and host- based attacks without requiring root privileges. Unlike other solutions that analyze predefined threats in the cloud, which can drain a device’s battery, zIPS™ operates effectively on AirWatch-managed devices without affecting the user’s experience. Businesses can also easily deploy zIPS™ onto employees’ devices through the AirWatch-managed app store, enabling customers to protect their devices from advanced cyberattacks. Once deployed, managers gain unprecedented zIPS™-protected devices with the zCONSOLE™ dashboard.

"The shift to secure mobile devices requires more modern approaches than used for other IT systems, said John Marshall, senior vice president and general manager, AirWatch by VMware. "We are dedicated to providing secure protection of data, no matter where it’s shared. By adding Zimperium’s advanced mobile threat protection, we are extending our ecosystem of partners to provide customers with an additional layer of security to contain and protect data from cyber threats they might encounter."

"Malicious actors are switching from PCs to attacking mobile devices. Advanced hackers target key employees via spear-phishing emails or while working outside of the corporate network at places like airports," said Zuk Avraham, founder and CEO of Zimperium. "Zimperium's Mobile IPS monitors for both known and unknown malicious activity on the device using its behavioral engine - providing an additional layer of security for AirWatch managed mobile devices."
