Network Associates buys Secure Networks

Continuing its buying spree, Network Associates last week acquired Secure Networks.

The acquisition of Secure Networks, including its Ballista security auditing scanner, will extend Network Associates' network security and management offerings to include vulnerability assessment capabilities.

Ballista will be incorporated into Network Associates' Net Tools Secure suite, officials said. Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.

The announcement is the continuation of a trend currently under way in the security industry.

In March, Network Associates acquired help desk vendor Magic Solutions in a cash deal worth $US110 million.
