Telstra has entered into an agreement to acquire MSC Mobility (MSC), a leading provider of Enterprise Mobility solutions in Australia. The acquisition is a key step in Telstra’s Global Enterprise and Services’ (GES) focus on Enterprise Mobility – which has been prioritised as a fundamental part of Telstra’s growth strategy. 

MSC provides mobile device management and provisioning services for large organisations, including providing devices and support to end users, and professional services, including strategy consulting and mobility solutions design. 

MSC’s core capability is its Enterprise Mobility Management platform which incorporates mobile device management software such as Airwatch and MobileIron. Having already partnered with Telstra for a decade, MSC is Telstra’s largest Enterprise Mobility Management partner and delivers device management services for a large number of Telstra’s enterprise customers. 

The acquisition will enable Telstra to build on this existing relationship that manages the end-to-end enterprise mobility lifecycle, including valuable reporting and analytics that help customers drive better business outcomes.

Michelle Bendschneider, Telstra Executive Director Global Products 
This provides Telstra with an enhanced offering in the market and a seamless experience for our customers. In addition, MSC’s established processes and platform can be expanded to host and support the service in Asia, Europe and the US, which also supports our objective of growing this portfolio globally.

Leuk Andersen, Managing Director, MSC
This is a great fit for our people and we are really excited by the opportunity to be part of Telstra's strategic plan. Together we’ll have powerful capabilities in device and mobile applications management, security, IoT, Machine to Machine and Asset Tracking.
