On October 14, 2015, VMware announced plans to acquire Boxer, Inc, a privately held company that offers a comprehensive and secure personal information management (PIM) solution for mobile devices to businesses and consumers. 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, etc.) across mobile devices and platforms (iOS and Android).
Boxer's technology enhances the AirWatch Inbox solution with a robust mobile personal information management (PIM) client that offers secure email, calendar, contacts and tasks. The solution aligns well with the AirWatch architecture and offers customers a mature, all-in-one PIM that is enterprise mobile management (EMM)-ready and secure.
