MUMBAI, INDIA: VMware will acquire Boxer, a privately held company that offers a personal information management (PIM) solution for mobile devices.

Boxer enables the secure synchronization and use of native and third party productivity applications (email, calendar, tasks and contacts) and enterprise social collaboration tools (Salesforce, Box, Evernote) across mobile devices and platforms (iOS and Android).

The team, which will join AirWatch, has developed a mature PIM solution for enterprises that offers a container approach to mobile application management and security.

Boxer will enhance the AirWatch Inbox solution with a robust mobile PIM client that offers secure email, calendar, contacts and tasks. The solution aligns well with the AirWatch architecture and will offer customers a mature, all-in-one PIM that is enterprise mobile management (EMM)-ready and secure.

Further the company has partnered with Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Gmail, iCloud, Salesforce, Twitter, Outlook and Yahoo.

“I am incredibly proud and excited to share that VMware has announced plans to acquire Boxer,” said Andrew Eye, CEO, Boxer. “The Boxer team will continue development of our consumer apps, which are available for download on the Apple and Google app stores.”

“I still remember the first time I was able to get my work email on a handheld device. I felt connected and empowered to be in the know, and get things done from anywhere. Since then, the world of enterprise mobility has evolved significantly,” said Noah Wasmer, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President, Product Management, Mobile Products, End-User Computing, VMware.
