Zimperium, a mobile security company, has conducted an IRAP assessment of its mobile threat defense platform at a sovereign Australian data center.
The move is part of the company’s efforts to support the Australian government’s cybersecurity initiatives.
IRAP, short for Information Security Registered Assessors Program, enables Zimperium to offer a sovereign-hosted MTD service, eliminating the need to build, maintain and manage infrastructure at the individual agency level. The assessment ensures Australian government customers that Zimperium’s data security controls and procedures are in line with existing policies and guidelines.
“The launch of sovereign-hosted MTD is a game changer, facilitating significant cost savings and rapid adoption and time to value for our government customers,” said Shridhar Mittal, CEO of Zimperium.
Dallas, Texas-based Zimperium became the first mobile threat defense provider to secure an Authority to Operate by the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.
The company previously worked with the Department of Defense to secure mobile devices used by armed forces.
