McAfee opens data-theft snooping service

Bolt-on acquisition

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

McAfee, the US security software firm, has stumped up $20m cash for Onigma, a developer of data theft monitoring software.

This will form the basis of McAfee Data Loss Prevention, a new host-based service helping enterprises to spy on staff and contractors in case they leak company info or indulge in some intellectual property theft jiggery-pokery.

Also the service will help customers meet regulatory requirements for compliance and data protection, Onigma says. This help with the federal form-filling does not appear to extend to stock option declarations.
