    Unplugged, the company focused on bringing true privacy and security to everyday consumer communications, incorporates new technology from enterprise-grade mobile security platform Zimperium.


    As part of the tech-level integration, Unplugged utilizes Zimperium’s patented machine-learning technology in its newly available UP Defender antivirus mobile app.



    Any line of defense is only as strong as its weakest link, and mobile protection is no different. As tech developers and businesses continue to grapple with the spam bot epidemic, and with roughly 80% of cyberattacks happening on third-party apps, the demand for mobile defense is surging.



    But securing devices from unwanted monitoring and malicious actors has become a 360-degree issue that now requires a robust infrastructure to protect multiple entry points. Americans lost nearly $30 billion in phone scams in 2021 alone, which means daily tech usage requires protection that matches hackers and scammers in sophistication and agility.


    Unplugged’s newest addition to its privacy-reclaiming mobile app roster, UP Defender, acts as a shield against everyday smartphone threats. The app provides complete endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools that create a protective layer for the most sensitive smartphone vulnerabilities such as malicious file scanning and network threat detection.


    By integrating Zimperium’s mobile Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) component, UP Defender proactively fortifies users from common and complex security risks. This includes shielding users from unsafe Wi-Fi networks, phishing, and malware attacks in real time.


    Anyone with an Android device can download Unplugged’s privacy-focused App Suite, which includes a VPN, App Store, and Messenger. The bundle offers a comprehensive software bundle that works in confluence to create a multi-point network of defense and privacy. In addition to its comprehensive software offering, Unplugged readies for the launch of its UP Phone, a flagship mobile built from the ground up to return data privacy and security to the hands of the user.


    “Integrating our newest app with Zimperium’s innovative protection tools indicates a really strong year ahead for Unplugged,” says Ryan Paterson, President of Unplugged. “We reached many milestones in 2022 and this only sets up more momentum to reach our ultimate goals in bringing true privacy and security to users around the world.”
