Sophos is to acquire mobile security firm Dialogs to expand its security and management offerings.
The company said that the deal for the privately-held Dialogs would help to boost its mobile device management and security platforms.
The company's products and services will be integrated with the Unified Threat Management platform.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Based in Germany, Dialogs makes tools which allow enterprises to manage devices through both on-premise and software-as-a-service (SaaS) platforms.
Sophos said that the Dialogs products would help to compliment its mobile security tools, providing a single platform for management, security, data encryption and messaging.
"Joining forces with Dialogs will allow Sophos to offer fully integrated solutions," said Sophos chief marketing officer, Rainer Gawlick.
"This is only the beginning of Sophos' complete security offering for mobile devices and will be complemented by solutions for mobile security and mobile data encryption in the coming months."
Cyber criminals have also been looking to the mobile space. Volumes of mobile malware have exploded in recent months, specifically on the Android platform.
Researchers estimate that mobile security incidents are costing firms in excess of $500,000 each year.
