Backed by a slew of notable investors such as Warburg Pincus and Softbank, Zimperium Inc offers real-time, on-device protection for mobile devices against known and unknown threats on the iOS and Android platform
Delaware-based Zimperium is a mobile security firm, which offers real-time, on-device protection against known and unknown threats on iOS and Android devices. The company was incorporated in 2013 by Elia Yehuda and Zuk Avraham, and has raised US $60 million in funding from notable investors such as Warburg Pincus, Softbank, Sierra Ventures, Samsung and Telstra.
The company currently has four products on board. The first is zIPS, a prevention system that provides holistic protection against mobile network, device and application attacks on the iOS and Android platform. Its second product z3A Advanced App Analysis provides intelligent insights into a company’s employees’ apps, thus evaluating safety and risk level of apps accessed by them and implementing security policies to minimize or mitigate risk of attacks. Its third product is the zIAP In-App Protection, which typically protects data shared to and through apps developed by enterprises. In other words, typically apps created by enterprises enhance speed of work and increase customer satisfaction, but security is not a core expertise for them, especially when they can access a user’s confidential data. Zimperium’s zAIP app tackles this by providing immediate device risk assessment and threat alerts. Its fourth product, zANTI is a mobile toolkit that allows IT security managers to imitate an advanced attacker and identify malicious techniques they use to compromise data in a company’s network.
Today, Zimperium offers its solutions to companies in the financial services, Government, healthcare, insurance and other segments, and across platforms such as Blackberry, Citrix and Airwatch.
