On May 19, Divide announced that they were being acquired by Google. Given the integration of Divide with IBM Endpoint Manager, I’m very familiar with the solution and used it on multiple smartphones and tablets to access IBM work data. Divide is a mobile container solution and the Divide Secure Workspace provides separation between personal and work data. One of things I liked most about Divide was that my mobile device no longer required a device password. I was only prompted to enter a password when I accessed work data.
