Secure cloud biz Trustwave equips M86 anti-malware guns

Grabs security 'through the cloud' with acquisition

HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

Cloud-security firm Trustwave has bought web security and anti-malware firm M86 Security. Financial terms of the acquisition, announced Tuesday, were undisclosed.

Trustwave said the deal allowed it to add web security to its portfolio of compliance, application, network and data security products and services. It promised that anti-malware technology delivered through the cloud and managed services as fruits of the acquisition. The deal also bolsters position in EMEA and the Pacific, regions where M86 has established sales operations through channel and service provider resellers.

Privately held M86 employs 300 people serving 25,000 customers. Its products include secure web gateways and secure mail gateways. Post acquisition, security researchers at M86 Security Labs will become part of Trustwave SpiderLabs. ®
