Technology company Oracle has agreed to acquire the database firewall producer Secerno.
The transaction is for an undisclosed sum and is expected to close before the end of June 2010.
Secerno, which has headquarters in Oxford and New York, produces computer firewalls specifically for company database protection, which block unauthorised activity in real-time.
California-based Oracle produces IT software and hardware, and already uses Secerno firewalls for its databases.
Andrew Mendelsohn, senior vice president of Oracle says: ‘Secerno’s database firewall product acts as a first line of defence against external threats and unauthorised internal access with a protective perimeter around Oracle and non-Oracle databases. Together, Oracle’s complete set of database security solutions and Secerno’s technology will provide customers with the ability to safeguard their critical business information.’
