IT service management vendor acquires cloud MDM tool

IT service management software vendor Kaseya has acquired Rover Apps, a provider of cloud solutions for securely working with enterprise resources using employee personal devices without giving up complete control of the device to the enterprise.

According to Kaseya the acquisition, the terms of which were not disclosed, will allow it to provide security for mobile BYOD users using a secure containerized approach. MSPs and enterprises will be able to secure their corporate information on mobile devices without affecting users’ personal data.

“Our acquisition of Rover Apps enables us to deliver a comprehensive and unique solution to address the mobile BYOD security and management needs of our MSP and enterprise customers,” said Yogesh Gupta, CEO of Kaseya, in a statement. “Business is rightfully concerned about the security of its corporate data and networks when users access business systems using their personal mobile devices. And users do not want to give IT departments the ability to control and destroy personal information on the devices they own. The containerized approach of our solution perfectly satisfies the needs of both constituents.”

The Rover Apps solution allows secure access to corporate applications, business email and document editing on mobile devices, isolation of business data from personal data, central management and control of users, policies and data access, central control of corporate data and the ability to wipe it clean on users’ devices without affecting their personal data, and complete security of the enterprise network from user-downloaded personal applications.

“We are excited to join the Kaseya family and offer our customers the benefits of the easily deployed Rover platform. This pairing will allow us to reach the broad population of BYOD mobile users in the markets Kaseya serves, bringing them a simple, secure means of managing company data on popular mobile platforms,” said Jonathan Foulkes, CEO of Rover Apps, in a statement.
