WhiteCryption, a prominent provider of advanced application shielding and cryptographic key protection, acquired by Zimperium, the global leader in mobile security, has expanded its range of mobile application protection solutions. WhiteCryption was purchased by Zimperium from a group of investors led by Intertrust, a pioneer in trusted computing and digital rights management (DRM) tech. Current whiteCryption clients will be supported by Zimperium, and whiteCryption’s products will be integrated into Zimperium’s Mobile Application Protection Suite (MAPS), resulting in the world’s most advanced mobile application protection solution.

Enterprises can use Zimperium MAPS to create secure mobile apps that are naturally resistant to cyberattacks. MAPS is the only platform that safeguards mobile apps from conception through deployment. MAPS now offers app scanning, app shielding, runtime protection, and the security of sensitive cryptographic keys in one platform, thanks to the addition of whiteCryption’s technology. The integrated threat management dashboard provided by MAPS enables real-time threat visibility as well as the capacity to respond to emerging threats and attacks discovered.

“With mobile applications containing and processing an increasing amount of critical personal and business information, the risks and attacks have increased too. In response, organizations want to unify mobile application protection to improve visibility and prevent security gaps between point products,” said Phil Hochmuth, Program Vice President of Enterprise Mobility, IDC.

“To provide our customers with the best security and the most value, Zimperium believes that every part of a unified mobile application protection solution should be best-in-class. We are excited to join forces with whiteCryption, whose team has developed the most advanced mobile application code and key protection solutions available,” said Shridhar Mittal, chief executive officer of Zimperium.

“Zimperium and whiteCryption are a match made in heaven to heal a world full of increasing cyberthreats. The combination of the two technologies will provide a powerful antidote to today’s increased threats in mobile and IoT, and we wish the combined Zimperium-whiteCryption team all the very best,” said Talal G. Shamoon, chief executive officer of Intertrust.
