The addition of RAPsphere will give the AppSense platform greater BYOD controls and improved management of enterprise users, the company said.Virtualized desktop system provider AppSense on May 8 announced that it has acquired RAPsphere, a maker of software that enables CIOs to embrace BYOD in the enterprise while protecting corporate applications and data on mobile devices. BYOD signifies "bring your own device," which large numbers of enterprise employees want to do at work, rather than have to carry a separate company smartphone or other mobile PC.
Terms of the transaction were not released. This marks the first acquisition made by New York-based AppSense; it will expand the application of user virtualization across the mobile enterprise, the company said.
