LONDON -- Antenna Software, delivering real business mobility to the world’s most demanding enterprises, announced today the acquisition of Vaultus Mobile Technologies, the leading provider of consumer-facing enterprise mobile applications. Effective immediately, Vaultus will begin operation as a wholly owned subsidiary of Antenna Software, doing business as Antenna Vaultus Inc.

Through the acquisition, Antenna will significantly accelerate its ability to offer consumer-facing enterprise applications, with zero product integration required. Because the companies’ respective mobile platforms offer fully complementary technologies, Antenna and its new subsidiary will continue growing global business with absolutely no interruptions to customers or partners.

Antenna will set a new standard for delivering enterprise-class mobility that fully embraces the power of User Interface (UI)-rich mobile applications on any device. Enterprises will be able to empower the entire top-to-bottom workforce with highly functional role-based mobile applications, and engage enterprise consumers to interact with their brands to deliver new avenues of strategic top-line revenue growth. Antenna is now fully positioned as the only global mobile technology vendor that provides consumer-friendly enterprise application usability and enterprise-class functionality on any mobile device – today.

Founded in 2000 and born out of MIT, Vaultus is based in Boston and will maintain its location after the acquisition. The company brings to Antenna a broad range of Global 2000 customers that include, among many others, E*TRADE Financial, Merrill Lynch, Wachovia, ING, State Street, Prudential, and Genzyme. Vaultus’ customer portfolio expands Antenna’s already large base of more than 200 enterprise customers, and strategically aligns Antenna with the financial services and retail vertical markets, both of which are driving major growth in mobile use.

“CIOs and CMOs are now clear in their mandate to engage consumers through innovative new mobile applications,” said Gene Signorini, Vice President of Yankee Group’s Anywhere Enterprise Research Group. “At the same time enterprise employees are now demanding that mobile applications for business deliver the same types of UI-rich experiences that they are accustomed to getting from their personal life. With the acquisition of Vaultus, Antenna has positioned itself to tap directly into these mobile market dynamics and to provide leadership on how organisations can get this new level of enterprise mobility done.”
