Zimperium has been positioned as a leader in the IDC MarketScape* on worldwide Mobile Threat Management Security Software for the second straight year. The IDC MarketScape provides a clear framework in which the product and service offerings, capabilities and strategies, and current and future market success factors of IT and telecommunications vendors can be meaningfully compared.

In the IDC media alert, Phil Hochmuth, program director of Enterprise Mobility at IDC, noted “Many enterprises see mobile threat management software tools as a valuable frontline level of defense against mobile threats, as well as an emerging security technology requirement from a compliance standpoint.”

In the intro to the report, Phil states “As mobile security and governance frameworks mature, mobile threat management (MTM) software tools are filling a major security gap many enterprises are discovering across one of their most pervasive technology deployments: smartphones and tablets used by employees.”

In recognizing Zimperium as a leader again, IDC specifically highlighted our on-device detection as a strength in the report, noting “The zIPS product uses cloud-trained ML engines to create its security baselines, then uses device-level functions to detect, monitor, and react. The device-level capabilities can function without connectivity to Zimperium’s cloud service, allowing the detection to take place under any circumstances.”

IDC also recognized our unique value with enterprise mobile management (EMM) platforms, noting “Zimperium has broad EMM support, with over a dozen platforms supported, offering a wide range of enterprise-class mitigations. In addition, it also has a resale relationship with MobileIron, where the EMM vendor sells Zimperium MTM software as MobileIron Threat Defense. This allows for tighter management and integration of MTM detection and MobileIron-based EMM mitigation (such as conditional access controls, disconnects from VPN/SaaS apps, device quarantine).”

Additionally, IDC recognized our SDK for embedding protection inside mobile apps, Zimperium zIAP, stating “In addition, beyond zIPS, the company also has a mobile application security tool in zIAP, which is used to build security features into other mobile apps via an SDK for third-party software developers. The zIAP product has been deployed in mobile apps, protecting over 25 million users.”

No other vendor can match our on-device capability to detect known and unknown threats. Our on-device deployment with the zIPS app or the zIAP SDK is absolutely the most effective way to secure your employees’ devices or your customers’ mobile sessions.
