Secure Computing Closes Acquisition of CipherTrust
Secure Computing Corporation announced that it has closed its acquisition of CipherTrust. This merger firmly establishes Secure Computing as a dominant player in the enterprise gateway security market.Ã‚Â In addition to protecting corporate network infrastructures, the combined company’s solutions will address the fast-growing Web and messaging gateway security needs.Ã‚Â These solutions protect against malicious inbound attacks such as spam, viruses or other malware; from policy and regulatory compliance violations related to sensitive data leaks; and compromises in identity and access control.
Secure Computing has significantly expanded its product portfolio with the addition of the industry’s preeminent messaging security solution – powered by the Company’s patented global reputation technology TrustedSource — that has consistently been recognized for its technology leadership by authorities such as Gartner, IDC and numerous technology publications.Ã‚Â The combined product portfolio now consists of unique, best-of-breed, integrated solutions that provide uncompromising functionality with low total cost of ownership by eliminating the need for customers to deploy, and manage disparate point products from multiple vendors.Ã‚Â
This transaction also provides the opportunity to accelerate the combined company’s revenue growth by making the high-growth messaging product line available to Secure Computing’s worldwide channel network.Ã‚Â Together, Secure Computing now has more than 18,000 customers and 1,800 resellers in 106 countries, thereby delivering even greater opportunities to cross-sell the full Secure Computing product line.
