Symantec to Acquire Nukona to Help Businesses Embrace 'Bring Your Own Device' Movement
Symantec has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Nukona, a privately-held provider of MAM (mobile application management).
Symantec will now include a cross-platform mobile application protection solution to help IT organizations protect and isolate corporate data and applications across both corporate owned and personally owned devices. The transaction is expected to finalize by April.
The acquisition of Nukona complements Symantec's acquisition earlier this month of Odyssey Software, a provider of MDM (mobile device management). By offering MDM and MAM across multiple platforms, Symantec will help customers secure enterprise critical mobile apps and data while managing and protecting them with policies, including authenticating users and encrypting sensitive files, just to name a few.
