Trend Micro announced today a definitive agreement to acquire Provilla, Inc., a leading provider of fingerprint-based intelligent endpoint solutions for data leak prevention (DLP) in organizations. Under the agreement, Provilla will operate as a subsidiary of Trend Micro’s U.S. affiliate.
Provilla’s data leak prevention experts as well as technology and products will enhance the Trend Micro portfolio of easily deployed and managed multi-layered content-security solutions for business customers.
Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro commented:
Trend Micro is focused on providing customers with the most useful, intelligent, centrally-controlled content-security solutions to address the latest unpredictable, malicious threats entering or leaving organizations, and that includes intentional or inadvertent data leaks. Solving this growing problem will require broader and deeper insight into the multiple endpoint data leak vulnerabilities and the use of intelligent solutions that can identify sensitive data and prevent its misuse through endpoint devices and channels. The acquisition of Provilla strengthens our ability to execute on our content-security strategy, with technology and products complementing our own.
