US-based mobile security and enterprise mobility management provider AirWatch has acquired Motorola Solutions’ mobility services platform (MSP) business. The MSP product line will enable AirWatch to combine MSP’s features and functionality with AirWatch’s ease of use across multiple device and OS types.

Motorola Solutions’ existing MSP customers will continue to receive the same level of service directly from Motorola. AirWatch will evolve the MSP product line on an ongoing basis and pursue further plans to incorporate the leading MSP features into the AirWatch EMM platform.

“With MSP, AirWatch gets a fully featured product line for enterprise mobile computers and a talented team with tremendous domain expertise. AirWatch will provide size, scalability and significant investment in this space, which will benefit our MSP customers. Motorola Solutions and AirWatch will collaborate to ensure that the product support transition is seamless,” says Girish Rishi, senior vice president of enterprise solutions, Motorola Solutions.

“We are excited to welcome both the MSP associates and technology to the AirWatch family. We highly value their shared focus on customer satisfaction and know they are trusted partners in the mobile space,” says David Dabbiere, COO, AirWatch.
