McAfee is expanding their security portfolio, following an announcement made by the company that they plan to acquire Secure Computing
Corp. McAfee has offered $465 million for the outfit, hoping to bring additional email and network protecting systems into their fold. As they are the number two security firm around, acquisitions are the logical move for them to grow.
McAfee claims that the acquisition shows how the company wants to focus exclusively on security, and will continue to do so. They don't mention if any tools that Secure Computing provides will be carried over to their existing software suites or services, or if they plan to just let the company operate more or less as-is.
