We definitely would like to have this kind of app. Nowadays, we live in a new era, where technology is a big part of our life. Our phones are now like an extension of our body, you don't go anywhere without it and you have all your information in it. What happens if someone gets that information? It can be dangerous !
Zimperium is a new start-up, which says it can bring the best security apps for our phones. They come on the market with the idea that security is vital for us now and they promise to develop the best technology, which will make us feel safer.
Their new Android app called zIPS or Zimperium Intrusion prevention system is a solution, for now, just for business clients. The start-up hopes it will bring a new version of the app for consumer use in the near future. zIPS is using a new technique: it learns how your device is working, and if something strange is happening, it blocks that new action. Zimperium has a challenge that they must solve: we are very dynamic with our phones, we are connecting to lots of networks and downloading apps constantly, so people behavior might change frequently. This makes hard for zIPS to learn our pattern and know from which malicious software it must protect us.
The app has two parts: the first is the monitoring part, in which zIPS scans for any malicious apps that want to change your settings, or if someone from your network tries to intercept your data, so then it will notice you of that fraud. The second part is called zCONSOLE, which is used by the licensed owner to observe any threats and monitor the linked Android devices.
zIPS sounds like the next step in security for our phones, so stay tuned !
