Zimperium announces integration with Microsoft EMS and Intune
Enterprise mobile security provider Zimperium has announced an integration with Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) product to offer real-time threat protection and comprehensive mobile risk management.
The integration, which is currently in private preview with a select group of customers, aims to give users real-time enterprise mobile threat defence (MTD) protection and then providing intelligence directly to Microsoft Intune, the Redmond company’s mobile device and app management tool.
Zimperium says the combination of its product and Microsoft EMS will allow security admins to set rules based on risk level or compliance regulations. “When Zimperium reports a dangerous threat, Intune marks it as ‘non-compliant’ and is able to restrict access to applications and resources, for example email or company documents,” the company explains. “Once the threat is mitigated, zConsole updates the device’s threat level and allows Intune to grant access.”
“Zimperium is excited to integrate with Microsoft to help organisations of all sizes proactively protect employees and data from mobile threats,” said John Michelsen, Zimperium chief product officer in a statement. “The combination of EMS conditional access technology and Zimperium’s MTD platform provides significant business, security and compliance value.”
The company took an opportunity to give some updated numbers on its momentum. More than 10 million mobile devices are licensed with Zimperium MTD, while mobile operators the company partners with include SoftBank, Deutsche Telekom, and BlackBerry – a partnership which this publication reported on in September last year.
