A Match Made In Heaven?

The crew over at Byte and Switch are running an article on a possible merger between SonicWall and Lasso Logic.
I'm vaguely familiar with both companies, I figure this might be a good move. Both service smaller offices, and their markets are slightly different. Could be very interesting.
The SOHO market could see introduction of CDP and firewall all-in-one. Not bad, particularly with disk sizes going up and disk prices going down.
I wonder if soon we'll have storage and security that looks like printer adds - "Print Copy Scan Fax..." Only we'd be going "Replicate, Backup, Virus Scan, Phish block..."
Interesting times, that's all I can say.
