Data-plumbing deal

Sponsored: Creating the Storage Advantage

Trend Micro has acquired data leak prevention firm Provilla, in an agreement that expands its business beyond its core antivirus and content security markets. Financial terms are undisclosed.

Data leaks potentially expose firms to security, intellectual property, financial, privacy and compliance threats.

Provilla's technology enables organisations to mitigate against the risk of sensitive data, such as client contact details or customer records, leaving an organisation without its approval. The technology also lets users know the exact locations of sensitive data for either auditing or control purposes.

Trend Micro will continue to offer Provilla's stand-alone products for the near term as well as gradually integrate Provilla’s capabilities into its own enterprise, small and medium business portfolios. ®
