Secure Computing buys CipherTrust to become market leader

Secure Computing Corporation has acquired CipherTrust. This merger firmly establishes Secure Computing as a major player in the enterprise gateway security market.

In addition to protecting corporate network infrastructures, the combined company's solutions will address the fast-growing Web and messaging gateway security needs.

These solutions protect against malicious inbound attacks such as spam, viruses or other malware; from policy and regulatory compliance violations related to sensitive data leaks; and compromises in identity and access control.

This transaction also provides the opportunity to accelerate the combined company's revenue growth by making the high-growth messaging product line available to Secure Computing's worldwide channel network.

Together, Secure Computing now has more than 18,000 customers and 1,800 resellers in 106 countries, thereby delivering even greater opportunities to cross-sell the full Secure Computing product line.
