Never Trust, Always Verify
Enterprise adoption of advanced security architectures is on the rise, and potentially the most prominent of those architectures is Zero Trust. From private enterprises to the federal government, Zero Trust architectures are driving organizations to meet the threats of tomorrow head-on.
As organizations increasingly move to address security gaps, mobile device security has to be chief among their concerns and considerations. The simple fact of the matter is that the ‘never trust, always verify’ Zero Trust foundation does not work when 60% of the devices connected to corporate networks are mobile endpoints.
User recommendations for Zero trust network access (ZTNA) includes to “Implement application-specific access for employees and IT contractors as an alternative to VPN-based access,” and to “Allow access on personal devices by reducing full bring your own device (BYOD) management requirements and enabling more secure direct application access.”

How Zimperium Closes the Zero Trust Gap
Unsecured mobile devices expand an enterprise’s attack surface and are a critical threat to the enterprise. The only way IT and security teams can shore up their Zero Trust architecture and gather the critical data for informed decisions is with advanced mobile endpoint security.
Properly configured and integrated into UEM, XDR and SIEM platforms, advanced mobile threat defense (MTD) solutions enhance existing Zero Trust controls by providing mobile device risk attestation.
As the global MTD leader, Zimperium empowers IT and security administrators to understand their mobile landscape, mitigate mobile risks and threats, and ensure the mobile devices connected to their data meet the security requirements. Specifically, Zimperium Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) – formerly known as zIPS – delivers the critical mobile device data to security teams, enabling them to provide comprehensive coverage of all connected devices.
Zimperium Zero Trust Partners
As the premier provider of mobile device risk attestation, Zimperium has partnered with and integrated into leading Zero Trust architecture providers, enabling security operations and IT support teams to fully integrate mobile devices into their never trust, always verify security practices.
As employees have moved beyond the office walls, they require productivity tool sets that can go where they go. Enabling cross-platform productivity and communication across traditional and mobile endpoints allowed companies to shift to distributed and remote workforces with minimal disruption to daily activity. With this shift has come further adoption of bring your own device (BYOD) and other mobile endpoint policies for workflow, data access, communication needs.
