Good Technology has agreed to acquire Copiun, Inc., a privately-held secure mobile collaboration company whose solutions allow mobile users to directly and securely access file shares, Microsoft SharePoint or other document stores from anywhere without a VPN connection or firewall reconfiguration.
The transaction extends Good’s collaboration solution with Copiun’s secure mobile file sharing and data syncing technology to allow business workers to access, sync and share enterprise information from anywhere, at any time, using their mobile phone or tablet. The financial terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed.
King Lee, president and CEO of Good Technology, says, “Our acquisition of Copiun will accelerate and enhance our ability to provide customers with more high value, business productivity capabilities that incorporate our commitment to data security.”
According to Forrester Research, Inc., two-thirds of North American and European employees indicate that they work outside of their corporate office regularly. This acquisition gives businesses a program that will keep their staff productive while on-the-go on both personal (BYOD) or corporate-liable devices.
“We are pleased to join Good Technology’s leadership in enabling employees to access business-critical information using the growing number of mobile devices entering today’s global enterprise workforce,” says Puneesh Chaudhry, CEO and co‐founder of Copiun who will join Good’s leadership team
Copiun personnel will become full-time employees of Good, and the acquired company’s headquarters in Marlborough, MA will become a Good office. The transaction is expected to close in September and is subject to customary closing conditions.
