Trend Micro is acquiring data leakage prevention firm Provilla to augment its content-security products.
Provilla provides fingerprint-based intelligent endpoint products for data leak prevention (DLP) in organisations.
Under the agreement, Provilla will operate as a subsidiary of Trend Micro, which will offer data leakage prevention systems for both office-based and mobile workers.
Eva Chen, CEO at Trend Micro, said, "The acquisition of Provilla strengthens our ability to execute on our content-security strategy, with technology and products complementing our own."
Trend Micro will continue to offer Provilla's stand-alone products in the near term as well as gradually integrate Provilla's capabilities into its own enterprise and SME products.
