Zimperium receives SPIFFY Award for ‘Most Disruptive Technology’

Telecom Council celebrates Zimperium’s Mobile Threat Protection solution at annual TC3 Summit

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 2, 2015 – Zimperium, the leader in enterprise mobile threat protection, is the recipient for the San Andreas Award for Most Disruptive Technology, a part of the 2015 SPIFFY Awards. Announced at the eighth annual TC3 Summit, the Service Provider Innovation Forum (SPIF) of the Telecom Council of Silicon Valley recognized Zimperium for its innovation, execution, management and technology.

SPIF members rigorously reviewed nearly 200 promising telecom startups and selected 38 finalists. Judges ultimately chose seven award winners and celebrated Zimperium’s z9 engine as showing the highest promise to disrupt the mobile security market.

“Today’s workforce is increasingly conducting business via mobile devices, so it is critical that enterprises take steps to properly protect their data,” said Liz Kerton, president of Telecom Council. “Many of our global service providers see the opportunity for their service and believe Zimperium has the technology and execution to disrupt this market segment.”

Zimperium’s mobile endpoint protection solution is powered by its proprietary z9™ engine, which uses advanced machine learning algorithms to analyze and protect against cyber threats in real-time. z9™ operates completely on-device, and secures the mobile device from known and unknown threats, even when it is not connected to the internet.

“We’re excited to receive Telecom Council’s recognition for the most disruptive technology, which powers our mobile threat protection solution,” said Zuk Avraham, Founder and Chairman of Zimperium. “In 2010, we predicted that hackers would move from attacking PCs to mobile devices. Ever since, we have worked to build the best technology to protect against advanced cyberattacks on mobile devices.”

The Telecom Council of Silicon Valley connects the companies who are building communication networks with the people and ideas that are creating it. Zimperium participated in the Council’s 2015 TC3 Summit, which is a 2-day executive program that brings together carriers, device vendors, venture capitalists, platform providers and startups.
