McAfee has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire privately owned Trust Digital, a provider of enterprise mobility management and security software and is deployed by a growing number of businesses to deliver mission critical data to the point of service using Apple iPhones and iPads.
McAfee expects that Trust Digital’s strong foot-hold in the mobile security market will extend McAfee’s endpoint market, addressing a wide range of mobile operating systems including iPhone OS, Android, Web OS, Windows Mobile, and Symbian.
Trust Digital’s enterprise mobility management for smartphones provides a Web services platform to manage and secure smartphones and mobile tablet devices regardless of device manufacturer. This robust management platform addresses the nuances of smartphone technology while also providing tools similar to those used by IT to manage and secure laptops and desktops.
The acquisition is expected to close by June 30 of 2010.
