VMware To Acquire Boxer

The Boxer team has developed a mature PIM solution for enterprises that offers a container approach to mobile application management and security.

VMware plans to acquire Boxer, a privately held company that offers a comprehensive and secure personal information management (PIM) solution for mobile devices to businesses and consumers.

The proliferation of applications, devices and an increasingly mobile workforce has driven up the cost and complexity of managing end-users. Access to mobile email is essential for employees who need to work on the go. However, corporate email often contains sensitive data and documents. It’s important that companies have a strategy for productivity and social collaboration applications keeps data secure while providing an intuitive experience for end-users. Boxer enables the secure synchronization and use of native and third party productivity applications (email, calendar, tasks and contacts) and enterprise social collaboration tools (Salesforce, Box, Evernote, etc.) across mobile devices and platforms (iOS and Android).

The Boxer team, which will join AirWatch, has developed a mature PIM solution for enterprises that offers a container approach to mobile application management and security. The company 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.

“I am incredibly proud and excited to share that VMware has announced plans to acquire Boxer,” said Andrew Eye, CEO, Boxer. “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.”

“I still remember the first time I was able to get my work email on a handheld device. I felt connected and empowered to be in the know, and get things done from anywhere. Since then, the world of enterprise mobility has evolved significantly,” said Noah Wasmer, chief technology officer and vice president of product management, mobile products, End-User Computing, VMware. “Upon closing of the acquisition, the combination of Boxer and AirWatch by VMware will create a world-class suite of services that will enable businesses to provide their employees with secure access to their email, content and apps.”
