Google Inc. says Divide's technology will be used at companies whose employees use smartphones and tablets running on its Android software. More than 1 billion devices worldwide are powered by Android, making it the world's leading mobile operating system.

Divide, originally known as Enterproid, was founded four years ago by former Morgan Stanley executives who believed that the growing popularity of smartphones and tablets would drive more corporate demand for device-management tools.

The New York company has raised more than $25 million, including a $12 million round led by Google's venture-capital arm.
