Zimperium, a cyber company focused on mobile phone security, announced that the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), selected Zimperium’s Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) to deliver comprehensive Mobile Endpoint Protection (MEP). Zimperium’s MTD solution will protect DISA’s unclassified mobile users and devices against phishing, malicious/risky apps, operating system 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 operational mobile capabilities.

The Zimperium platform will monitor DISA DMUC users when securely accessing applications and data on iOS and Android endpoints. The Zimperium zIPS solution, powered by Zimperium’s machine learning-based engine z9, protects devices from mobile threats.

The company was founded and is managed by Israelis. The deal with the American Defense Department includes protection of at least 150,000 endpoints.
