Computer Associates continued its buying spree today snapping up privately held Tiny Software for an undisclosed amount.

Tiny Software develops endpoint security technology and personal firewalls for Windows PCs, as well as a developer toolkit allowing third parties to integrate with its software.

CA will continue to sell Tiny’s standalone products, while integrating its technology into its own eTrust Integrated Threat Management portfolio. This is CA’s second buy this month. It paid $350m for corporate governance vendor Niku earlier this month. Niku was its third $300m plus buy in a year.®
