Good Tech Acquires Macheen for BYOD App Insights

Good Technology, which specializes in secure mobility solutions, has acquired Macheen, a mobile cloud application service provider based in Austin, Texas. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Good Technology said the acquisition extends its capabilities to provide customers with embedded corporate data plan support across business-required apps. Split-billing capabilities enable customers to tie data usage costs directly to the apps using that data, reducing regulatory risks associated with traditional mobile billing models.


"As BYOD deployments continue to become mainstream, our customers want to alleviate the risk and cost associated with rapidly increasing mobile regulations, tax liabilities and complexities around mobile reimbursement and corporate stipend programs, while at the same time carriers are looking to better serve their enterprise customers," said Christy Wyatt, chairman and chief executive officer, Good Technology. "By acquiring Macheen and its cloud-based offering, and coupling that with expanded carrier relationships, we will be securely and cost-effectively taking more friction out of deploying secure mobile apps and workflows - further positioning Good ahead of the industry in the race to democratize mobility."

"At Sprint, we have ripped out and replaced our entire 3G network and deployed 4G LTE in 488 cities to deliver a future-proof data experience for our customers," said Karen Freitag, vice president, wholesale and emerging solutions at Sprint. "Adding in the ability to deliver split billing capabilities through Macheen and now Good Technology, allows us to continue delivering a high-quality customer experience and further advances Sprint's position as the leader in enabling Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO)."
