Google has beefed up its business-focused mobile-management technology by swallowing up BYOD firm Divide.
Its offering allows end users to split up their personal and work data on their own devices in order to ensure business data remains secure. The app, which runs on Android and iOS, comes in the form of a basic free version as well as a more advanced version which costs enterprises $60 (£36) per user, per year.
Divide works with mobility-focused channel partners across the world and has technology partnerships with the likes of MobileIron, IBM and Box.
The newly acquired firm has bases in London, New York and Hong Kong and was snapped up by the tech giant for an undisclosed sum.
Divide will join Google's Android team but insisted it will be business as usual for its existing customers.
Google had no further comment on the acquisition.
