Zimperium Named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape for Mobile Threat Management

Zimperium has been positioned as a leader in the IDC MarketScape* on worldwide Mobile Threat Management Security Software. 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.

Mike Jennett, research vice president, Enterprise Mobility Strategies, at IDC, says,

“Mobile threat management is emerging as a must-have puzzle piece for successful enterprise mobility deployment and management.”

Many companies utilize mobile management platforms to handle security issues related to employee use of mobile phones. Employees lose phones. They accidentally copy and paste content they shouldn’t. They also need entitlements and remote access to systems via their smartphones. However, management platforms don’t detect mobile threats and we are glad IDC sees threat management as an important piece of any enterprise mobility strategy.

The smartphone is your most vulnerable computing device. It leaves your corporate network and perimeter. It bypasses all the end-point and network security systems you have in place. And yet, it has access to these systems or has sensitive data from these systems on the device. This is a dangerous situation you need to be aware of and manage.

Detecting mobile threats without reading user data or tunneling traffic in order to detect malicious activity is very difficult. Users demand that their private data on their phones remain so. They don’t want their company or hackers reading private data. This is why a behavioral-based detection method is the best for both corporate and BYO devices.

IDC specifically notes our z9 detection engine in the report.

Zimperium “uses machine learning to dynamically and accurately detect advanced device, network, and mobile application threats.”

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 most vulnerable endpoints – smartphones.
