NetUtils partners with Zimperium


NetUtils introduces Mobile Threat Defence as a managed service to protect organisations from mobile attacks. 

You may have seen across the media that there has been a massive increase in attacks on mobile devices and applications with vendors like Apple rushing out multiple security updates to protect from zero day and now zero click compromises. We have all been lulled into a false sense of security that mobiles are immune to the sort of issues we have been seeing for years on our traditional endpoints but unfortunately this not the case. As the line between mobile and traditional endpoints continues to blur a security mindset will need to be in place and ready to provide visibility and secure access to our now modern endpoint devices.

“Modern Computing Devices are the biggest threat to data protection with 60% of all corporate data being consumed by mobiles/tablets/Chromebooks!”

Most organisations are not monitoring what these devices are doing and how they are being impacted by threats which have been magnified since working from home became the new normal. If your employees are using corporate mobile devices for the workplace, or accessing corporate data from personal devices, then Mobile Threat Defence is a key security solution and compliments your Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions.

Zimperium’s z9 is the only on-device, machine learning-based security engine that has stopped every known and zero-day threat in the wild without an update / works in airplane mode.

“In 2012, we invented and patented Zimperium z9, the dynamically updatable machine learning framework that transformed Zimperium into the first mobile threat defence (MTD) vendor fully powered by on-device artificial intelligence.”
