Nokia today announced it is buying the security software business from Fujitsu subsidiary Teamware. No financial details were disclosed for the deal, which will include the transfer of around 30 employees in Helsinki, Finland and Kista, Sweden to Nokia.
Nokia executives said the acquisition would strengthen its solutions for mobile Internet for both enterprise and service providers.
Through the deal, the company will gain Teamware's Intranet Security Server (TWISS), secure client and smartcard handling technologies.
TWISS provides remote and mobile users with a secure connection to corporate Intranets by authenticating and encrypting connections. The technology supports both Wan and Lan access and will focus on Nokia's Access Zones - secure mobile network access software.
The company said it will continue to support any existing Teamware customers.
Markku Rauhamaa, vice president of Nokia's wireless network solutions, commented: "This acquisition will strengthen Nokia's ability to develop secure network access that will complement our Wireless Lan solutions."
The acquisition is expected to be completed in around a month.
