Zimperium Integrates With Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security To Defend Against Zero-day Mobile Threats

Zimperium Provides Microsoft EMS Customers With On-device Protection Against Device, Network and App Attacks.

SAN FRANCISCO, June 12, 2017 – Zimperium, a global leader in enterprise mobile threat defense (MTD) and the only provider of real-time on-device protection against known and unknown threats, today announced an integration with Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS). Integrated directly with Microsoft Intune, Zimperium enables mobility and security teams to assess the risk of, and protect devices against, the broadest range of mobile threats.

Zimperium’s on-device detection protects users in real-time, without the potential delays and limitations of cloud-based detection, and then provides threat intelligence directly to Microsoft Intune. The integration adds the capability to control access to corporate resources and data based on Zimperium’s comprehensive analysis.

“Zimperium is excited to integrate with Microsoft to help organizations of all sizes proactively protect employees and data from mobile threats,” said John Michelsen, Chief Product Officer at Zimperium. “The combination of EMS conditional access technology and Zimperium’s MTD platform provides significant business, security and compliance value.”

Andrew Conway, General Manager of Product Marketing for Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security at Microsoft Corp. added, “As attacks increase in sophistication and frequency, securing mobile endpoints is becoming a priority for organizations. The integration between Zimperium and Microsoft Intune will deliver an additional level of security on mobile devices.”

Zimperium delivers real-time, on-device threat detection and remediation for Android and iOS devices, with proven enterprise implementations covering hundreds of thousands of devices. The platform’s management console, zConsole, integrates with leading enterprise mobility management (EMM), security incident and event monitoring (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).

Zimperium’s integration with Microsoft Intune provides the following benefits:

  • Ease of Deployment: Seamless deployment and management of Zimperium’s threat defense solution via Microsoft Intune, with activation through Microsoft Azure Active Directory. The solution is deployed to employees’ devices via Intune’s app delivery capabilities.
  • Real-time Threat Protection: Zimperium’s machine-learning models have been developed and refined through years of threat intelligence research. The solution provides comprehensive, on-device mobile threat protection along with configurable end-user notifications and alerts, defined by Intune’s customized threat threshold for assessing device risk posture.
  • Comprehensive Mobile Risk Management: The combination of Zimperium and Microsoft EMS allows IT security administrators to set rules based on risk level or compliance regulations that automatically regulate users’ and devices’ access to services. When Zimperium reports a dangerous threat, Intune marks it as “non-compliant” and is able to restrict access to applications and resources, for example email or company documents. Once the threat is mitigated, zConsole updates the device’s threat level and allows the Intune to grant access.

Zimperium’s integration with Microsoft EMS is currently in private preview with select customers. Go to https://blog.zimperium.com/mobile-threat-defense-for-intune for more information.
