Symantec buys mobile app management firm

Plans to hoover up BYOD bucks

Security for virtualized datacentres

Symantec has bought privately held mobile application management firm Nukona. Terms of the deal, announced Tuesday, were undisclosed.

The purchase, along with the earlier acquisition of mobile device management firm Odyssey Software, will allow Symantec to develop and market products that support the growing trend of allowing workers to bring their own devices to work.

Nukona’s technology offers the ability to natively protect and control iOS, Android and HTML5 apps. The software offers the ability to "protect and isolate corporate data and applications across both corporate owned and personally owned devices", according to Symantec. ®
