Dropbox Gets Israeli Office With CloudOn Acquisition

Dropbox, the cloud storage document-sharing firm, has acquired Israel-based Cloudon. The firm is a mobile document editing tool developer.

CloudOn made apps that let users create and edit Microsoft Office files on mobile devices. The firm will now shut down its services following the acquisition.

Reimagining docs

“Today, we’re taking the next step toward our vision of reimagining docs – by joining the Dropbox team. Our companies share similar values, are committed to helping people work better, and together we can make an even greater impact,” said the firm on its website yesterday.

“We’re thrilled to continue building things that help people work better – and we’re proud and excited to join the Dropbox team to help people be more productive every day.”

The acquisition shows Dropbox’s intent on expanding its mobile armoury. The US firm also gets its first Israeli office out of the deal.

Cloud launched early 2012 and has since since accumulated over nine million registered users.
