IDefense provides intelligence services about network-based security threats and vulnerabilities to a select number of government clients and large enterprises.
The company aims to provide clients with an early warning about new threats as they emerge.
IDefense uses a network of over 200 researchers in 30 countries to help in the intelligence gathering, and closely monitors the hacker community. It directly employs a staff of 45.
VeriSign hopes that the acquisition will allow it to market iDefense products to a large group of clients, as well as combine the research with some of its existing security monitoring products.
