VMware and AirWatch today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement under which VMware will acquire AirWatch, a provider of enterprise mobile management and security solutions.

VMware will acquire AirWatch for approximately $1.175B in cash and approximately $365M of installment payments and assumed unvested equity. The AirWatch team will continue to report to founder and chief executive officer John Marshall as part of VMware's End-User Computing group, led by Sanjay Poonen, EVP and GM. Alan Dabbiere, AirWatch's co-founder and chairman, will be overseeing a new AirWatch operating board which will report to Pat Gelsinger, VMware chief executive officer.

"With this acquisition VMware will add a foundational element to our end-user computing portfolio that will enable our customers to turbo-charge their mobile workforce without compromising security," said Pat Gelsinger, chief executive officer, VMware.

Privately held and headquartered in Atlanta, GA, AirWatch is a provider of enterprise solutions for Mobile Device Management, Mobile Application Management and Mobile Content Management.
