MobileIron and Zimperium Create First Real Time Detection and Remediation for Mobile Threats

Zimperium and MobileIron are coming together and simplifying mobile threat defense. MobileIron will integrate with Zimperium’s machine learning based threat detection and provide a comprehensive security solution for enterprise customers.

The integration of our machine-learning driven threat detection with MobileIron’s security and compliance engine provides enterprises with speed and scalability as they automate the process of detecting and responding to mobile threats. MobileIron enables enterprises to effectively manage mobile and desktop deployments and enforce app and data security policies using a granular compliance engine. Now, with Zimperium, MobileIron will enforce policies based on cyberattacks to mobile devices.

Extending automation

With the machine learning capability of our on-device solution, our technology autonomously identifies threats to devices, via networks or apps. Integrating with MobileIron offers users, real-time detection and automated remediation without the need to rely on a cloud connection or for a security researcher to assess the threat.

“User experience and security must work hand-in-hand in enterprise mobility,” said Barry Mainz, President and CEO, MobileIron. “With this integration, both employees and IT can feel confident they are protected against mobile threats without employees being required to take a single action.”

Once Zimperium detects a threat, the MobileIron engine can take pre-determined actions to stop the threat. All of this happens in real-time, without the delay of contacting and engaging over-extended IT staff. This offers huge advantages over threat detection strategies that require signatures of specific threats or rely on cloud-based databases to determine your device is being attacked.

A proactive solution to a growing threat

Security teams are increasingly aware of, and focused on, risks that mobile devices represent to enterprise networks and data. They understand the risks but battle project schedules and resource constraints to complete implementation. An integrated approach makes the case to do it now.

Nicholas McQuire, Vice President Enterprise Research at CCS Insight says,

“According to our latest 2017 Workplace Technology Survey fielded in August, over 35% of IT decision makers now list device security, malware and threat protection as the biggest priorities for investment in enterprise mobility and security in 2017.”

The threat is real

Mobile threats are more visible than ever before. As companies implement mobile threat detection technologies to detect threats at the mobile endpoint, more data is created on how hackers are after our primary computing device.

In the second quarter of 2017, Zimperium customers detected threats on both iOS and Android devices in every region. Our Global Threat Report found one in fifty apps is too risky to have on a device and 4% of devices detected a man-in-the-middle attack. These customers detected the threat and remediated accordingly. It will now be easier for MobileIron customers to protect their devices with the integrated solution.
