Web and messaging security specialist M86 Security has acquired Finjan to bolster its enterprise credentials and SaaS operations.

Under the terms of the deal, M86 will merge with Finjan's operations, product and technology and its labs and malicious code research centre.

M86 is no stranger to consolidation, having been formed out of the merger of Marshal and 8e6 Technologies a year ago. It acquired behavioural malware detection company Avinti in March.

John Vigouroux, chief executive of M86, who was CEO at Finjan until April this year, said: "We are confident about our aggressive plan to integrate Finjan's secure web gateway into the M86 product line."

He said that the enterprise product line, experience and products helping with gateway security and Finjan's knowledge of delivering services via the cloud were factors behind the deal.

Gadi Maier, president and CEO of Finjan Software, said the merger was a good fit and it would benefit from the worldwide distribution that was set up by M86.
