Network Associates is to acquire IntruVert Networks, a maker of hardware-based firewalls and intrusion detection systems, for $100m in cash.

IntruVert offers two network-based intrusion detection devices - the IntruShield 4000 and IntruShield 2600 - that are capable of blocking network attacks. The devices combine signature detection, denial-of-service analysis, and anomaly searching capabilities into a hardware-based appliance platform.

The IntruShield 4000 sensor appliance is designed to block attacks on large networks by inspecting incoming traffic for illegitimate packets at rates as fast as 2Gbps, while the IntruShield 2600 sensor appliance, designed for small and medium-sized networks, scales to detection rates as fast as 600Mbps.

The deal, subject to regulatory approvals and approval by IntruVert stockholders, is expected to be completed in 45 days' time.
