VMware to acquire Boxer

VMware to buy Boxer

VMware has announced plans to acquire Boxer. The Boxer team will be joining the industry leader in enterprise mobility as a part of the AirWatch team within the VMware End-User Computing business unit. The combination of Boxer and AirWatch by VMware will create a suite of services that will enable businesses to provide their employees with secure access to email, content and apps. Both of our teams strive to provide solutions that are “consumer simple and enterprise secure” which made this an obvious fit. The Boxer team will continue development of our consumer apps, which are available for download on the Apple and Google app stores.

 

The Boxer team, which will join the AirWatch team, has developed a mature personal information management (PIM) solution for enterprises that offers a container approach to mobile application management and security. Boxer has partnered with industry leaders and supports market leading productivity, enterprise and social networking solutions including Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Gmail, iCloud, Salesforce, Twitter, Outlook and Yahoo, just to name a few…

 

AirWatch deliveres mission critical business information to mobile users, while enabling best-in-class enterprise security and a good user experience. We made enterprise mobility simple by building a management foundation focused on a single console that can support the complete spectrum of business needs – from securing corporate-owned devices to streamlining access to information, apps and content needed for optimal productivity.
