Google has been on a buying spree as of late, and today’s purchase includes a startup called Divide, formerly known as Enterproid. Divide was backed by Google Ventures group and it focuses on Android in the enterprise by separating corporate information from personal information on devices. Sounds a lot like Samsung’s Knox doesn’t it?
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it’s expected that the Divide team will join the Android team. It’s no secret that big companies have been backing Apple’s iOS and ignoring Google’s Android, so it’s likely that we will see changes to stock Android that will hopefully make corporate IT departments a little more receptive to our favorite little bugdroid.
