Divide, a Hong Kong/NY startup, confirmed on its blog that the company has been acquired by Google for an undisclosed sum. The startup added that Divide staff will join Google’s Android team, but it promised “Divide will work as it always has”.

Divide, formerly known as Enterproid, is an enterprise mobile computing platform that helps organizations and individuals to get the most out of mobile technology and corporate BYOD policies. Combining cloud-based management with device-level technology, the platform allows users to configure a separate profile on their own mobile devices for business use, including a suite of business apps for email, calendar, contacts, files, browser, etc.

The company’s name “Divide” literally speaks to its “container approach” in separating cooperation and personal information on employee-owned smartphones and tablets. This approach will cater to the needs of security-conscious enterprises without compromising personal privacy of employees.
