Mobile software developers Extended Systems and Pointsec have announced a collaboration to bring a range of secure mobile solutions to market. This partnership will allow each company to offer an integrated OEM version of the other's solutions to its customers.
Through their combined channels, the partnership enables each company to bring secure mobile solutions, including mail and messaging, device management and mobile applications, to enterprise customers on the platform of their choice.
Extended Systems' OneBridge enables organizations to mobilize enterprise applications, manage mobile devices and deploy software to virtually any mobile device type. Pointsec provides industry-leading mobile device security components for a wide variety of mobile devices. Together, the two companies will bring superior and industry-validated solutions to their existing and future customers.
"The Pointsec solution provides Extended Systems with a product offering that is well suited for a large part of our business," said Charles Jepson, President and CEO. "Specifically, they have demonstrated leadership with mobile platforms, including Symbian, Microsoft Windows Mobile and Palm. In Western Europe, the Symbian OS leads the market, and this is obviously an important consideration for our business."
"Extended Systems' strong expertise in mobile technologies has been the driving force behind their market leadership, which is important to Pointsec's growth," said Peter Larsson, CEO of Pointsec Mobile Technologies. "We're finding an increasing number of customers interested in purchasing simple-to-deploy and complete solutions. The value of our combined channels will bring to market a powerful global entity that already shares many Global 2000 customers."
