Built-In Mobile Intrusion Prevention System

Bringing stealth to the Solarin is Zimperium's zIPS mobile intrusion prevention system, which is built into the handset. The zIPS system thwarts a broad array of advanced device, network and application mobile cyber-attacks, without impairing usability or functionality of the handset, according to Sirin. Also included is integrated chip-to-chip 256-bit AES encryption, which military agencies around the world use to protect their communications.
