The mega deal of $67 billion between its parent company EMC and Dell has not seemingly interrupted business VMware, which has announced its plans to acquire Boxer, a privately held mobile solutions company that offers a comprehensive and secure personal information management (PIM) solution for mobile devices to businesses and consumers.
The proliferation of applications, devices and an increasingly mobile workforce has driven up the cost and complexity of managing end-users. Access to mobile email is essential for employees who need to work on the go. However, corporate email often contains sensitive data and documents. It’s important that companies have a strategy for productivity and social collaboration applications keeps data secure while providing an intuitive experience for end-users.
Boxer enables the secure synchronization and use of native and third party productivity applications (email, calendar, tasks and contacts) and enterprise social collaboration tools (Salesforce, Box, Evernote, etc.) across mobile devices and platforms (iOS and Android).
The Boxer team will join the company’s Airwatch unit, working towards launching a suite of secure apps for the enterprise, according to VMware CTO Noah Wasmer, who called Boxer a “consumer-grade” enterprise app.
