CA Buys Active Content Security Vendor
- By Scott Bekker
Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA, www.cai.com
) announced the acquisition of privately-held Security-7 Software Ltd., a provider of "active content" security solutions.
The acquisition will provide CA with additional development expertise and resources to help organizations protect their increasingly critical information assets from the ever-increasing range of Active Content threats that are occurring daily.
The acquisition consummates the existing business relationship between the two companies. Through an agreement announced last year, CA has incorporated Security-7's software modules for gateway-level security into its Unicenter TNG and InoculateIT product lines, offering CA clients a broader array of solutions, based upon Security-7's real-time, kernel-based gateway-level content inspection technology.
Financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed. --Thomas Sullivan
