Spire Security Viewpoint: Google gets into the security business with GreenBorder Technologies

My Burton Group colleague Pete Lindstrom's take on Google's GreenBorder acquisition (see the post for GreenBorder details) 

With all the hoopla surrounding Web 2.0 security, this seems like a prudent purchase for Google. What will be interesting to see is whether it decides to charge for the software or simply considers this the infrastructure cost to further its current business models. Note that it is unlikely that GreenBorder cost a lot - I think they have been through at least three senior management changes in the past five years or so.

Neat stuff. Will be very interesting to see what a company with Google's muscle can do with it.
