Nokia acquires Intellisync

Nov 16, 2005

Nokia said Wednesday it will acquire Intellisync, a wireless messaging developer.
The Finnish mobile group said that by acquiring Intellisync, it will be able to expand its wireless e-mail and device-management capabilities.

"Enterprises face increasing challenges when it comes to selecting devices, enabling access to email and securing corporate data, while carriers are facing more and more complexity to support these demands. We want to make it simple for our business customers to mobilize their workforces no matter what their starting point," Mary McDowell, executive vice president and general manager at Nokia's enterprise solutions business group, said in a news release.

"Based on our customers' needs, we identified the acquisition of Intellisync as the best way to provide solutions to these challenges. The combination of our portfolios and the addition of the Intellisync team will make Nokia the core mobility provider for businesses of all sizes," she added.

The Nasdaq-listed Intellisync is based in San Jose, Calif., and its clients include America Online, Crédit Agricole and Domino's Pizza.
