EMC buys Network Intelligence

EMC, which closed its acquisition of RSA on Monday, will also buy Network Intelligence for US$175 million.

EMC will spend $US175 million to acquire security information provider, Network Intelligence.

The privately held company sells appliances that probe computer networks, providing security and compliance analysis.

EMC's latest acquisition underscores the growing importance of security technology to the storage vendor. It has also completed its $US2.1 billion purchase of RSA Security, which will form the basis of a new RSA-branded security division within the company.

Former RSA CEO, Art Coviello, will head up this division, which will absorb the Network Intelligence business unit, EMC said in a statement.

Founded in 1996, Network Intelligence has more than 125 employees, according to the company's website.

With these latest acquisitions, EMC hopes to be able to sell security as part of a broader product portfolio, chairman, president and CEO, Joe Tuicci, said. "It's becoming critical that security move beyond a point product solution," he said.

Analysts claim security companies will find it increasingly difficult to go it alone, with technology giants such as Microsoft, Cisco Systems and IBM moving quickly to add security features to their broader product platforms.

Just last month, IBM said it would spend $US1.3 billion to acquire managed security vendor, Internet Security Systems (ISS).
