RSA to Acquire Tablus

Acquisition expands RSA's data security strategy

Simplifying Data Security Management Through Policy-Based Controls

The ability to establish, enforce and audit data security policy is central to this vision. Specifically, enabling policy-driven data security controls throughout the infrastructure that are fully and mutually interoperable would not only address the data security problem, but also the associated cost of operation. Together with RSA's data security assets, EMC Infoscape and strategic partners, the core technology and intellectual property of Tablus will allow organizations to build robust policy around sensitive data, and distribute the enforcement of that policy as needed when that data is copied, moved or accessed.

"We are excited to be joining forces with RSA, an organization that has set the standard in data security for decades," said Anne Bonaparte, President and CEO of Tablus. "I am confident that Tablus' employees, solutions and services will make strong contributions to RSA's offering and both companies' customers can look forward to reaping the benefits of this compelling combination."

The acquisition of Tablus is expected to be completed early in the fourth quarter of 2007, subject to customary closing conditions.
