BANGALORE, INDIA: Google has bought Divide, a startup that allows enterprises keep the business and personal data separate on employee-owned smartphones and tablets.


The terms of the deal are not disclosed.

Divide was founded by former Morgan Stanley mobile IT executives, who led mobile development and applications at the bank. The team is intimately aware of the challenges facing IT departments, the absolute need for security and the demands of end-users.

Divide was founded with a simple mission of giving people the best mobile experience at work. Google might use it in the future builds of its mobile operating system, Android, to widen corporate usage of Android devices.


However, Divide has an app for iOS as well and it will work as usual for the existing users, assures Divide.
