Apple has acquired Fleetsmith, the creator of a device management solution that helps companies manage their Apple devices.
According to the company’s site, their solution “automates device setup, intelligence, patching, and security, for your company’s Macs, iPhones, iPads, and Apple TVs.”
In a blog post, co-founders Kenneth Kouot and Zack Blum, as well as Jesse Endahl write:
We’re thrilled to join Apple. Our shared values of putting the customer at the center of everything we do without sacrificing privacy and security, means we can truly meet our mission, delivering Fleetsmith to businesses and institutions of all sizes, around the world.
The acquisition will likely be a big help to Apple as their devices continue to gain popularity in the enterprise. Fleetsmith will give them a viable first-party device management option to offer customers.
