Protecting against web application threats using SSL

IBM has added another small software maker to its arsenal, picking up Green Pasture Software for an undisclosed sum.

Based in Oregon, Green Pasture makes document management software that lets user edit and manage files at the same time. The software tracks who has edited a particular document and what changes were made. Customers can use the code to work on spreadsheets, multimedia files and CAD (computer aided design) references.

IBM plans to add the company to tis Enterprise Content Management business. The Green Pasture products will be available right away from IBM.

This buy adds to a growing list of small acquisitions made by IBM in the content management space. In Nov. of 2002, IBM scooped up Tarian's records management software and in July of this year, IBM nabbed Aptrix's Web content management software.

Green Pasture has a fairly impressive customer list, including DuPont, El Paso Energy, Kraft Foods and Shell. The customer base is largely dominated by energy and oil companies. ®
