Zimperium Announces World’s First On-device Detection of Undetected Mobile Malware

Award-winning Machine Learning Engine, z9™, Detects Previously Unknown Malicious Apps In Seconds

SAN FRANCISCO – September 28, 2017 – Zimperium, the global leader in mobile threat defense (MTD) and the only provider of real-time, on-device protection against known and unknown threats, is announcing z9 for Mobile Malware. In addition to its proven efficacy against zero-day device and network attacks, z9 is the only machine learning-based engine capable of detecting previously unknown mobile malware on-device without the delays and risks of cloud-based lookups. z9 for Mobile Malware is initially available for all Android devices.

Zimperium provides the most integrated and scalable mobile threat defense platform. The solution delivers real-time, on-device threat detection for Android and iOS devices. To date, Zimperium’s machine learning-based engine, z9, has detected 100 percent of zero-day mobile exploits without requiring an update. z9 protects devices and their data via the zIPS™ mobile Intrusion Prevention System app, and mobile apps and their sessions via zIAP™, the In-App Protection SDK.

The platform’s management console, zConsole, integrates with leading enterprise mobility management (EMM), security information and event management (SIEM) and single-sign-on (SSO) solutions. The platform’s deployment options include Shared SaaS, Dedicated SaaS and On-Premise (via an organization’s private cloud).

“While a world-class researcher can analyze and determine that an app is malicious in two to three days, z9 can make the same determination on-device instantly,” said John Michelsen, Chief Technology Officer at Zimperium. “z9 for Mobile Malware enables tens of millions of devices around the world to become real-time detectors, providing immediate protection for enterprises and end users.”

As a part of Zimperium’s mission to improve the security of the entire mobile ecosystem, the company will also be providing previously undetected mobile malware to industry sources such as VirusTotal and Google.

z9 for Mobile Malware will be deployed alongside Zimperium’s existing detection capabilities during the first week of October, and be phased into full production around the world during 4Q/2017. The engine will be included in Zimperium zIPS licenses at no additional charge.
