Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) has acquired mobile device management platform developer Divide for an undisclosed amount in a move aimed at expanding Google’s Android enterprise customer base, InformationWeek reported Tuesday.
Thomas Claburn writes that Divide’s mobility software is designed to support both Android and iOS applications and helps IT departments manage business and personal devices across the enterprise.
Divide says the platform will continue to work for existing users following the acquisition, according to Claburn.
The company also offers a cloud-based console that is built to enforce group policies, app usage limits, screen locks and data erasure features.
Google has entered into 14 acquisition deals so far this year, according to InformationWeek.
