Good Technology has acquired key technology assets and engineering talents from JP Mobile, Inc. JP Mobile. JP Mobile was a pioneer in wireless handheld computing, was founded in 1995 and has maintained operations in Dallas and Hyderabad, India, both of which will be integrated into Good.
The acquisition gives Good Technology access to advanced server technologies that connect with a variety of back-ends, including IBM Lotus Notes and Domino, Novell GroupWise and IMAP. JP Mobile also brings to Good key handheld data security technologies and key team members with significant experience building mobile solutions for enterprises. Good Technology already provides industry standards-based wireless handheld computing software and services.
“By integrating key components of JP Mobile’s server and security technologies with our GoodLink server, service, and client software, Good will be able to extend its mobile messaging and PIM system to all of the leading corporate messaging platforms, while simultaneously raising the bar for end-to-end integrated security on Windows Mobile, Symbian, and Palm OS platforms,” said Danny Shader, CEO, Good Technology. “We will be able to serve many more customers within the US and abroad. This initiative will benefit not only our customers, but also our carrier and device partners, all of whom have been asking us to serve these markets.”
