Opt-in to Cyber Safety. Multiple layers of protection for your devices, online privacy and more.


Zimperium, the global leader in mobile security, has broadened its portfolio of mobile application protection solutions by acquiring whiteCryption, a leading provider of advanced application shielding and cryptographic key protection. Zimperium acquired whiteCryption from an investment group led by Intertrust, the pioneer in trusted computing and digital rights management (DRM) technology.
