HOPKINTON, Mass. -- RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC), today announced its intent to acquire Tablus Inc., a leading provider of data loss prevention solutions based in San Mateo, California. Tablus is privately-held; further details of the transaction are not being disclosed.

The Tablus solution will add industry-leading data discovery and classification, monitoring, and data loss prevention capabilities to RSA's data security portfolio, helping to enable the company to better meet the market's need for information-centric security by: finding and identifying sensitive data; preventing that data from "leaking" outside the organization; and simplifying the management of data security through policy-driven controls.

"Information security has clearly become an information management problem: today, many organizations struggle to establish exactly what data they have and where it all is - let alone how sensitive it is," said Art Coviello, Executive Vice President at EMC and President of RSA. "The hard reality of information security is that you cannot secure what you cannot manage, and you cannot manage what you cannot find. Once completed, this acquisition will significantly expand our ability to help organizations of all sizes truly secure their data - and accelerate our mission to bring information-centric security to life."
