Security compliance and management vendor Trustwave has announced it is to acquire anti-malware and security research vendor M86.
The company said that it would be integrating the anti-malware provider with its web security, gateway and filtering services. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
Based in California, M86 also maintains offices in London, Israel and New Zealand.
Trustwave said that while it had yet to finalise its plans, the company expects to see little overlap as it integrates M86's operations with its own. M86 Security Labs will become part of Trustwave's SpiderLabs operation.
While Trustwave has previously looked to expand and supplement its compliance service with the addition of web security and filtering tools, the company said that the M86 acquisition would be its largest to date.
Trustwave chief marketing officer Leo Cole told V3 that the company will be offering M86 and its other security services as both a bundled option with its compliance platform and as a separate option for companies ranging from mid-market to large enterprises.
"If you look at the really large enterprises, they may already have a reasonably robust security infrastructure and they may need to only add parts of the portfolio," Cole explained.
"But the mid-market is still trying to figure out how to build robust security in for the most part, so we can offer it one piece at a time or we can bundle it into a managed security service depending on what the customer needs."
