Zimperium Completes Integration Into VMware Workspace ONE Trust Network

IT security has always been front and center at VMware. Over the years we have built or integrated various security capabilities into all of our solutions. With inherent security capabilities built into the VMware Workspace ONE platform, customers can take advantage of managing and securing any app on any device using, for example, data loss prevention (DLP) policies, encryption and access management. In addition, customers have been able to leverage their existing investments in industry-leading security solutions as part of the Workspace ONE Trust Network ecosystem. Today, endpoint security tools are 24% of all IT security spending. Despite this massive investment, 70% of all breaches still originate at endpoints. Clearly, lack of investments to tackle the problem is not the issue. What is needed however is to leverage the capabilities of some of the best-of-breed solutions more effectively.

To do just that, we recently started work to bring Zimperium – a global leader in mobile security – into Workspace ONE Trust Network to give customers an integrated approach to detect, analyze and respond to threats. Today, we are excited to announce that Zimperium’s integration into Workspace ONE Trust Network is now generally available.

Enriching Workspace ONE Intelligence with Mobile Threat Data

Workspace ONE Intelligence is powered by the immensely valuable data it is able to gather from the Workspace ONE platform – ranging from device compliance, user identity, access location and more. This data enables Workspace ONE Intelligence to get a full view of the compliance status of all devices as well as risks associated with actions taken by users. Leveraging its Automation engine, it can further ensure that devices stay business ready and Zero Trust access policies are enforced at all times.

This integration with Zimperium augments Workspace ONE’s security capabilities to offer enhanced security for mobile devices. Now that Zimperium is part of Trust Network, Workspace ONE Intelligence can ingest real-time threat data as it relates to mobile devices from Zimperium’s Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) solution, zIPS. Zimperium’s zIPS is an award winning, machine learning-based, mobile security solution providing persistent, on-device protection for mobile devices and the information the devices access. zIPS isn’t ported from traditional endpoint security; it specifically guards against the unique threats targeting iOS and Android devices. zIPS detects device, network, phishing and application mobile attacks in real time.

Customers can now easily design custom dashboards inside of Workspace ONE Intelligence to get a comprehensive view into all the security alerts across their mobile fleet. Customers can also set up simple automation rules to take appropriate actions as Zimperium detects threats and they get relayed to Workspace ONE Intelligence. Below is just one of many different views that can be set up in the Workspace ONE Intelligence console.

VMware has a long-standing relationship with Zimperium and with this new integration, we are taking this relationship further to offer customers a streamlined option to manage and secure their mobile devices. This brings two best-of-breed products together to solve real customer challenges around alert fatigue and breaking down silos between IT and InfoSec for better prevention, detection and remediation of any security threats.

Please visit VMware’s solution exchange to get more information on the solution. Additionally, read Zimperium’s blog announcing the integration and join us for a webinar on July 16, where VMware’s Director of Product Management for Workspace ONE Intelligence and Zimperium’s Chief Technology Officer get together to demonstrate and talk about:

  • Integrating mobile and traditional endpoint threat data from Zimperium and Carbon Black into Workspace ONE Intelligence;
  • Achieving overarching visibility, correlation & threat hunting across all endpoints;
  • Utilizing Workspace ONE Intelligence automations (e.g., remediations, user notifications) to enable cross-endpoint actions.
