Seagate buys document searching company

By Justin Mann on
Seagate is expanding their profile, with the acquisition of a small search company by the name of MetaLincs. The company focuses on software that indexes large amounts of information for relevance, particularly when it comes to lawsuits or government inquiries. Seagate isn't mentioning how much they are paying for the firm, nor exactly what they intend to do with their software.

For a company that has made their name primarily with mass storage, it seems unusual for Seagate to be acquiring a company such as this. Perhaps it has something to do with their recent focus on enterprise-grade security in their drives?
