Divide-ThumbGoogle has bought Divide, a startup that secures smartphones to make them enterprise-friendly. It uses containers, a concept that should not sound unfamiliar around these parts thanks to the likes of Samsung KNOX. The approach separates a user’s personal data from work-related files, effectively isolating them from one another on the same device. Google’s purchase could imply a desire to tighten up Android’s security out of the box and better attract the interest of enterprise customers.
