Sterling, Va.- and Toronto-based tech company Fixmo, which creates security software for mobile devices, has agreed to sell its United States business division to Good Technology, a software firm headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The announcement comes about a year after Good Technology filed a lawsuit against Fixmo in April of 2013 at the U.S. District Court in Texas’ Northern District, according to Good Technology. The lawsuit alleged that Fixmo infringed upon Good Technology’s patents related to technology that would let users securely access business information through mobile devices.
Good Technology plans to incorporate Fixmo’s Sentinel Integrity Services, a mobile device tamper detection and verification system for both public and private sector clients. Fixmo developed the system under a cooperative research and development agreement with the Defense Department.
After the acquisition is complete, Good Technology plans to expand its employee base, according to the company.
