RSA Takes Tablus
EMC's RSA security division continued on its acquisition tear today, announcing its intent to buy content monitoring specialist Tablus for an undisclosed fee. (See RSA Snaps Up Tablus and TeliaSonera Launches Yoigo.)
The move follows EMC's recent purchase of authentication specialist Verid and last year's acquisition of Network Intelligence. (See EMC Secures Verid, EMC Buys Verid, and EMC Pockets Network Intelligence.)
Although the terms of the Tablus deal have not been revealed, the financial value of the acquisition is unlikely to match the $175 million spent on Network Intelligence, which had 700 customers and $25 million in funding.
Analyst Nick Selby of the 451 Group estimates that RSA spent around $40 million for Tablus, adding that the vendor has been on the lookout for this type of technology for almost a year. "This was a gaping hole in their strategy," he says. "They did look at a lot of players [in this space], but were slowed down by the fact that there were so many."
