Zimperium pursuing IRAP certification

Mobile security company Zimperium has commenced an Infosec Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessment of its Mobile Threat Defence (MTD) solution in a sovereign Australian data centre, paving the way for providing enhanced security solutions to the Australian Government.

The investment in a sovereign Australian cybersecurity capability will enable agencies and critical infrastructure organisations to more readily adopt mobile threat defence capabilities.

The investment, which directly supports the federal government’s cybersecurity initiative, follows Zimperium’s decisions to employ local Australian Government Security Vetting Agency (AGSVA) cleared specialists and engage PCG Cyber for IRAP security services.

Zimperium has already been providing mobile threat defence capabilities to multiple government departments at both the federal and state level, but a sovereign hosted MTD service will negate the need to build, maintain and manage silos of infrastructure for individual agencies.

Zimperium CEO Shridhar Mittal said the launch of a sovereign-hosted MTD service will be a game changer, and is expected to facilitate cost savings, and rapid adoption and time to value for government customers.

“Zimperium has also played a significant role in protecting other governments for a number of years, including the US Department of Defence, where we have secured the mobile devices used by armed forces to prevent incursion by hostile state actors,” he said.

“We can now do the same for the Australian Government and infrastructure organisations.”
