Google has made another acquisition.
This time it’s Divide, which provides a platform combining cloud-based management and device-level technology to help companies “get the most out of mobile technology and corporate BYOD policies”.

Google was already an investor in Divide by way of Google Ventures, as were Comcast Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, Globespan Capital Partners and Harmony Partners.
The move appears to be aimed at getting Android in more workplaces.
In a post on the Divide website (via Re/code), the company says:
We’re thrilled to announce that Divide is joining Google! Divide was founded with a simple mission: Give people the best mobile experience at work. As part of the Android team, we’re excited to continue developing solutions that our users love.
For existing customers, Divide will work as it always has. Thank you to everyone who has downloaded our app, partnered with us, invested in us and provided feedback along the way; we truly appreciate all your support.
