DALLAS AND RESTON, Va., April 6, 2022–(COMMERCIAL WIRE)–Zimperiumthe only mobile security platform designed specifically for enterprise environments, today announced a new partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp.the trusted provider of government IT solutions®. Carahsoft will serve as Zimperium’s primary governance aggregator®making the company’s FedRAMP-licensed mobile threat defense solution available to the public sector through Carahsoft’s reseller partners, NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V and Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software contracts 2 (ITES-SW2).

This partnership extends Zimperium’s reach into the public sector, making it easier for federal, state and local government organizations to access and deploy its mobile endpoint and application security solutions, and strengthening their defense against growing mobile threats.

Mobile devices and apps have quickly become one of the fastest growing and most exploited attack vectors for cybercriminals. In 2021, the Zimperium zLabs team, which has discovered the largest number of mobile vulnerabilities in the industry, discovered numerous threats affecting more than 10 million devices in at least 214 countries. As the need for mobility, remote work, and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) practices become permanent fixtures, mobile devices in the public sector pose the same, if not greater, risk than those in the private sector.

“Even the most sophisticated organizations are being successfully attacked on mobile devices. We have seen state-sponsored actors target employees at the highest levels of government, and they do so because they know that mobile phones contain a great deal of sensitive data. that can be used for a myriad of nefarious purposes,” said Ed Carter, CRO of Zimperium. “It’s critical for the public sector to have mobile security protection that detects and prevents threats in real time. With more government organizations realizing the seriousness of these threats and turning to us for the protection they need, our partnership with Carahsoft will expand our footprint to meet this growing demand.”

Zimperium’s advanced mobile threat defense solution, Zimperium zippers, is the only mobile security platform that provides government agencies with on-device machine learning-based mobile threat defense to protect iOS, Android and Chromebook devices from ever-evolving mobile attacks. Zimperium Mobile App Protection Suite (MAPS) helps businesses build secure and compliant mobile apps. It’s the only unified solution that combines comprehensive in-app protection with centralized threat visibility.

“Our number one priority is empowering our partners and public sector IT decision makers with next generation solutions, and mobile security is a growing and serious concern for them,” said Steve Jacyna, Director of Emerging Security Solutions. Cybernetics at Carahsoft. “Government organizations have a huge and growing responsibility to protect the public from cyber threats, and mobile security is at the forefront of that challenge. By partnering with Zimperium and our reseller partners, we are able to provide our customers with invaluable protection and peace of mind through of an advanced mobile security solution”.
