Trend Micro Acquires Spyware Company InterMute: A Trend?
by IDC, Thomas Raschke
This IDC Flash analyzes Trend Micro's announcement that it has acquired Massachusetts-based anti-spyware company InterMute, Inc. We see this being further proof of IDC's previous predictions about both overall security market consolidation (see also Netegrity, Sybari, Calendra, Oblix, etc.) and the future of the enterprise anti-spyware market. IDC believes it will rapidly consolidate, as customers increasingly demand a single comprehensive solution that addresses viruses, spyware, adware, trojans, worms, and other types of malicious code.
