Zimperium Mobile Threat Defense

Solution for securing mobile terminal devices

Zimperium Mobile Threat Defense (MTD), formerly known as zIPS, is an application that provides advanced mobile security against all major attack vectors. Zimperium MTD protects mobile devices even when they are not connected to a network, reducing risk by scanning for potentially harmful apps and jailbreaking processes on devices before providing access to resources.

Solution overview

Zimperium MTD is designed to protect company-owned devices against persistent and advanced threats in four categories: device, network, application and phishing attacks, without sacrificing privacy or personal data. The application provides the following functionalities:

  • Complete security: detection, proactive visibility of risks and vulnerabilities, device-level remediation and compliance actions through Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), Threat Intelligence and Threat Hunting
  • Machine Learning: AI-based detection protects against the latest types of mobile threats, including zero-day malware
  • Scalability: Zimperium MTD can be used as a stand-alone tool or integrated with solutions such as Mobile Device Management (MDM) or Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM)
  • Access to forensic analysis: through which security teams assess and respond to security incidents, reducing response and remediation time. Zimperium MTD thus prevents a compromised device from becoming an outbreak of infection
  • Extensive support for Android, iOS and ChromeOS.

Main functionalities

Zimperium Mobile Threat Defense works based on the following mechanisms:

Machine Learning (ML)

It detects threats by analyzing a mobile device's behavior, identifies anomalies, apps behaving like malware, abnormal network traffic, and advanced phishing attacks. The ML functionality is delivered on the device, securing it even if the terminal is not connected to the network.

Emphasis on privacy

It provides users with a transparent experience through customizable user settings and information about what data is collected and used for threat intelligence. Because Zimperium MTD detection is done at the device level, private information is never sent to the cloud.

Scalable mobile security

When integrated with a Mobile Device Management (MDM) or an Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), Zimperium MTD sends alerts about detected threats to the MDM/EMM, and they remediate the risk based on predefined rules. Zimperium is the only mobile threat defense solution that can integrate with multiple MDM/EMM simultaneously.

Critically important forensic analysis

Functionality achieved through integrations with leading MDM/EMM, Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) and Extended Detection and Response (XDR) systems. By collecting forensic data about the device, network connections, and applications, security operations teams can analyze the context and minimize risks.

Real-time alerts

Zimperium MTD runs locally on the device and does not require signatures, a cloud-based sandbox, or an internet connection. Users are always protected and alerted in real-time to any required action, even when in airplane or roaming mode.

What benefits does the solution bring?

Zimperium MTD brings the following benefits:

Installation and activation in less than a minute

Zimperium MTD can be deployed and activated in less than a minute, in any environment (cloud, on-premise or air-gapped).

Full mobile coverage

From tablet to phone, Zimperium offers complete security coverage for Android, iOS and ChromeOS.

Versatility of implementation

The solution complies with local data laws and compliance requirements by deploying in any cloud or on-premises environment.

Fast implementation

Install and activate Zimperium MTD on the mobile devices of employees and collaborators without the need for complicated activation steps from the end user.

On-Device Detection

It eliminates the delays and risks of cloud checks and ensures that your device is always protected, even when it's not connected to a network.

Access to critical data

It enables enterprises to have a complete picture of the security of mobile end devices and reinforces Zero Trust architectures.

Real-time alerts

The solution generates real-time alerts, without requiring users to wait hours or even days to find out if a device has been compromised.
