GoTo Announces Miradore Acquisition; AVer Releases Whiteboard Camera
Welcome to the No Jitter Roll, the regular round-up of news about collaboration and communication. In today's edition, we cover the latest acquisition around mobile device management and a new camera for whiteboard collaboration.
GoTo Expands Mobile Device Management Capabilities
Unified communications and remote IT support provider GoTo announced its intent to acquire mobile device management (MDM) provider Miradore from technology investor Standout Capital and other shareholders. Following the deal closure, Miradore will be integrated into GoTo's Resolve IT Support and Management product, expected early next year. With Miradore, IT teams can manage end users remotely across Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows devices and access security features like device lockdown and control capabilities.
“Our goal at Miradore has always been to help organizations secure and manage their IT devices smarter and more efficiently. Joining together with GoTo, a global leader in flexible work and IT Support solutions, gives us the opportunity to collaborate on the technology and resources to take that mission to the next level,” said Simo Salmensuu, CEO of Miradore, in the announcement.
Earlier this year, GoTo rebranded, changing its name from LogMeIn, focusing on its GoTo series of services. As part of that rebrand, GoTo simplified its product portfolio to include its GoTo Connect (its UCaaS offering) and GoTo Resolve service, as reported in this No Jitter article. In addition to the rebrand, the company was acquired in late 2019 by private equity firms Francisco Partners and Evergreen Coast Capital.

Additionally, the CAM130 comes with an adjustable whiteboard mount.
