Zimperium, the global leader in enterprise mobile security, today announced that Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) organization, selected Zimperium’s Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) to deliver comprehensive Mobile Endpoint Protection (MEP) to their unclassified mobile offerings.
Zimperium’s MTD solution will protect DISA’s unclassified mobile users and devices against phishing, malicious/risky apps, OS exploits and network attacks.
DISA’s DoD Mobility Unclassified Capability (DMUC) provides enterprise mobility management infrastructure, security, and mobile applications that ensure their users remain connected while on the move with the latest unclassified, operational mobile capabilities.
The Zimperium platform will monitor DISA DMUC users when securely accessing applications and data on iOS and Android endpoints. Powered by Zimperium’s on-device, machine learning-based engine, z9, Zimperium zIPS protects devices from more mobile threats than any other solution — even when an attacker controls the network.
DISA determined that the Zimperium zIPS/z3A solution would be deployed to a full production environment supporting the DMUC unclassified mobile offerings. This joint effort between DISA and Defense innovation Unit (DIU) demonstrates the value of OTA agreements to rapidly deliver leading edge technology to enhance the security posture of the warfighter.
DISA considers on-device (always on) protection important to ensure the greatest degree of threat detection and support in a zero-trust environment. Additionally, Zimperium was selected because it:
● Provides on-device protection against device, network, phishing and malicious app attacks;
● Achieved FedRAMP Authority to Operate (ATO) certification;
● Protects Android and iOS;
● Integrates with multiple unified endpoint management (UEM) tools in a single tenant;
● Can be managed on any cloud or on-prem; and
● Protects privacy.
“Zimperium has been an enterprise mobile security leader since our inception, and we are proud to work with DISA and DIU to help protect the Department of Defense from adversaries threatening national security,” said Shridhar Mittal, CEO at Zimperium. “Zimperium minimizes the mobile attack surface by detecting both known and unknown threats on-device and in real-time without the delays and risks associated with cloud-based lookups. Our innovative approach also delivers a great experience for personnel no matter their location or device.”
