by CXOtoday Staff    Aug 01, 2008

Motorola has signed an agreement to acquire privately held AirDefense, provider of wireless LAN (WLAN) security.

However, the terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Upon completion of the transaction, AirDefense will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Motorola, and will be integrated into Motorola’s enterprise mobility business.

Kathy Paladino, president (enterprise mobility business) of Motorola said, “This deal will enable Motorola to deliver a common platform solution for indoor and outdoor protection to wireless LAN networks.”

Motorola wants to maintain AirDefense’s Alpharetta, Georgia headquarters. The acquisition is expected to close in the next few months.
