BlackBerry’s enterprise sales force will resell Zimperium’s zIPS mobile threat protection application to customers of its mobile device management services, the two companies said in a statement.
Zimperium said the product costs $10 a month per device, with bulk discounts available, and that BlackBerry will take an undisclosed cut of sales.
Zimperium was founded in 2010 by a former security researcher for the Israeli military. It helps to defend against hacking of devices running on Apple Inc’s iOS and Alphabet Inc’s Android operating systems.
Alphabet’s Google and Samsung started issuing monthly security fixes for Android phones soon after a Zimperium employee last year discovered the Stagefright hacking software, which allows attackers to access sensitive content.
