Zimperium Dominates Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) Space in 2018

2018 Saw Triple Digit Growth, New and Growing Partnerships and
Industry Accolades

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/datasecurity?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#datasecuritylt;/agt;–Zimperium,
the global leader in mobile threat defense (MTD), concluded a record
year in 2018 with industry-leading results and triple digit growth, far
exceeding industry growth rates. Zimperium’s strong performance
parallels the accelerating demand for mobile security and MTD solutions;
in fact, according to BCC Research, the mobile device security market is
poised to reach $37 billion, globally, by 2022.

“It’s impossible to not look back at our stellar 2018 results without
getting excited about what 2019 will bring,” said Shridhar Mittal, chief
executive of Zimperium. “Organizations now realize mobile devices are an
unprotected endpoint with access to or containing all of the information
of a traditional endpoint. And while there are some overlaps in what you
protect — email, calendars, etc. — the way you solve the traditional
endpoint security problem is completely different than how you solve the
mobile security problem.”

“The Zimperium platform leverages our award-winning, disruptive and
patented machine learning-based engine, z9, to protect mobile data, apps
and sessions against device compromises, network attacks, phishing
attempts and malicious apps,” Mittal continued. “To date, z9 has
detected 100 percent of zero-day device exploits without requiring an
update or suffering from the delays and limitations of cloud-based
detection or legacy security architectures — something no other mobile
security provider can claim.”
