Motorola Mobility has announced that it will acquire Zecter Inc, a start-up firm offering products for cloud-based storage and streaming of digital media to Internet-enabled devices, for an undisclosed amount.

Zecter connects users to their content seamlessly and instantaneously, giving them simple, on-the-go access to music, video, photos and documents from their smartphones, personal computers, tablet PCs and web portals.

The company currently has two products — ZumoDrive, for cloud-based content synchronisation, access and sharing; and ZumoCast, for personal media streaming to any device.

“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,” the Motorola Mobility Corporate Vice-President (Software and Services), Ms Christy Wyatt, said in a statement.

“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,” she added.

Motorola Mobility, the mobile phone division of global telecom giant Motorola, is set to be hived off from the rest of the company next month.

The company said Zecter will enhance its mobile content experience and service offering, providing consumers with real-time access to their online content.
