Cloud client computing software developer Wyse Technology has acquired Trellia, a developer of cloud-based mobile infrastructure management. The acquisition gives Wyse an extended lineup of cloud-based software tools now spanning mobile security, device, app and expense management.
Trellia boasts a specific set of technology IP and expertise that can help enterprises speed deployment of cloud client computing, according to Wyse. The company said its aim is to further simplify and reduce the cost for enterprises to manage, support and secure the increasing number of consumer smartphones and tablets now accessing both physical and virtualized IT resources.
Market analyst firm IDC forecasts the virtual client computing market topping $3.2 billion by 2014. That consumerization of IT has many enterprise IT managers scrambling to implement technologies that allow mobile access to the cloud but protect the security and integrity of corporate networks at the same time.
Wyse said it plans to deliver intelligent, scalable and secure cloud-based mobile infrastructure and content management solutions that will support a wide range of users, content types, apps and devices. The company’s existing solution—prior to the Trellia acquisition—is PocketCloud, an iOS- and Android-based smartphone and tablet app that provides content management as a service and lets users securely access work and personal assets from a secure personal cloud.
