Citrix is buying mobile device management (MDM) house Zenprise.
Terms weren't disclosed but Fortune says it's paying $355 million.
The company, founded in 2003, raised $64.5 million from Bay Partners, Greylock Partners, Ignition Partners, Mayfield Fund, Rembrandt Venture Partners and Shasta Ventures.
CloudGateway offers a single control point to manage and securely deliver native mobile apps, as well as Windows, web and SaaS apps to any corporate or personal device.
Me@Work, announced in October, is a mobile app family built for business that includes Citrix ShareFile for secure mobile data access, GoToMeeting for integrated mobile collaboration, Podio for social team collaboration, as well as new @WorkMail and @WorkWeb apps for secure mobile e-mail and web access.
When MDM is combined with these mobile app and data solutions, Citrix figures it will be the first company to offer a mobile device, app and data management in a single integrated enterprise mobility product line.
TechCrunch expects VMware to go shopping for an MDM acquisition to compete.
The MDM market is valued at upwards of $7 billion.
