Citrix Adds To BYOD Arsenal With Zenprise Acquisition
Citrix Systems added a key piece to its mobility portfolio by announcing its acquisition of Zenprise, a mobile device management software vendor that has ridden the wave of the bring-your-own-device craze. Sumit Dhawan, vice president and general manager of mobile solutions at Citrix, told CRN the move is aimed at filling out Citrix's portfolio of mobile offerings.
"We started with Cloud Gateway, an application management product for a single point of control for all apps," Dhawan said. "We are also close to releasing other mobile apps, including mobile apps for secure email, secure Web browsing apps including access to corporate intranet portals, and a ShareFile app for synchronization and sharing of files. Zenprise is key to offering the entire stack, including the mobile device management part."
