Network Associates is leveraging the spoils of a 12-month shopping spree in the security arena, launching a new security outsourcing service in January.
The company was created by the merger of Network General and McAfee Associates. Following the acquisitions of Pretty Good Privacy and the UK?s Dr Solomon's, it announced the formation of a new 300-strong consultancy division in July, built from Trusted Information Systems, a firewall company acquired in March 1997, along with Network General and Secure Networks, acquired in October 1997 and May 1998 respectively.
Network Associates? Managed Services will offer cradle to grave security services, from creating policies to implementing security software and long distance monitoring of systems and networks from a company data centre.
Network Associates is believed to be pouring money into new skills and data centres, but it declined to comment on the scale of its investment.
