Motorola to Acquire Good Technology

Motorola will acquire Good Technology, a supplier of enterprise mobile computing software and service, for an undisclosed sum. Good's mobile messaging client is supported on the new Motoroal Q handheld, among other devices. Motorola said the acquisition will extend its mobile computing capabilities and increase its enterprise client base.

Good Technology's software and service offerings, which are used by more than 12,000 enterprises globally, enable wireless messaging, data access and handheld security. Good Mobile Messaging and Good Mobile Intranet solutions extend enterprise applications - including Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Domino, intranets and certain web-enabled corporate applications - to mobile employees by using end-to-end AES encrypted, FIPS 140-2 certified security, and cradle-free, real-time two-way wireless synchronization.

Motorola hopes to build upon Good Technology's customer and carrier relationships by maintaining its multi-device strategy.

"This is an exciting milestone for our company, and we look forward to scaling our growth as part of Motorola," said Danny Shader, chief executive officer and president of Good Technology. "Motorola's global reach, scale, widely recognized brand and worldwide carrier and customer relationships make it the ideal partner for Good Technology. "http://www.motorola.com
