Motorola Mobility, the mobile-focussed part of Motorola, has acquired Silicon Valley startup Zecter. Zecter’s technologies will be integrated with Motorola devices and the MOTOBLUR platform.
Zecter currently offers two commercial products: the cloud-based ZumoDrive storage service and the ZumoCast media streaming service. The ZumoDrive solution will be unaffected by the deal, although new customers can’t currently sign up for ZumoCast as the service is being enhanced.
Christy Wyatt, corporate vice president of software and services at Motorola Mobility, said “Consumers want seamless access to their content and media from wherever they are, while content providers want to ensure that content remains protected and secure. We believe that Zecter enables that seamless experience with the necessary security measures, and we are delighted to be able to work with this team. Zecter’s robust team brings multi-platform expertise along with compelling solutions for continuous digital media access across multiple platforms. Zecter is an exciting addition to our MOTOBLUR service platform and we welcome their highly skilled personnel to the Motorola Mobility team.”
