SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimperium, the industry leader in enterprise mobile threat defense (MTD) and the only provider of real-time on-device protection against known and unknown threats, today announced that Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry's leading electronic information security magazine and media partner of the RSA® Conference 2017, named Zimperium Mobile Threat Defense winner of the Next Gen Award for BYOD Solution.
A panel of leading, independent information security experts selected Zimperium's solution because of its innovative, machine learning-based approach to advanced mobile threat detection. Zimperium is the only vendor to protect all three layers of the mobile attack vector: mobile devices, the networks they connect to, and the applications they use.
"We're thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that's why Zimperium has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine," said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine. "Some of the best INFOSEC defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of the box."
Powered by its patented machine learning z9™ detection engine, Zimperium dynamically and uniquely protects against the broadest array of mobile attacks by detecting device, network and application attacks in real time. The z9 engine was developed specifically for mobile to combat the unique challenges of protecting iOS and Android devices, where unknown threats are prevalent. By monitoring the entire mobile device for malicious behavior regardless of the entry point, Zimperium's z9 is able to detect attacks and protect users.
"We see CDM's recognition of Zimperium Mobile Threat Defense as further validation that our machine learning product is differentiated and on the cutting edge of mobile technologies," said Shridhar Mittal, Zimperium's CEO.
Zimperium will be at the RSA Conference, San Francisco, Moscone North Hall, Booth #4710 showcasing the Mobile Threat Defense solution and providing demos of the just announced next generation features, Danger Zone and Activity Monitor.
