Security company CloudFlare announced it has acquired StopTheHacker, a small company specializing in anti-malware software, with the San Francisco company strengthening its own product portfolio.


Financial information about the deal wasn't disclosed.




Due to an increase in malware sophistication, interest in stopping the malicious code has become a bigger action item. For current StopTheHacker customers, CloudFlare promises things will remain normal as the company is absorbed:


"Going forward it will be business as usual for existing StopTheHacker customers and partners," said Matthew Prince, CloudFlare CEO, in a blog post. "We will continue to operate the StopTheHacker service and invest in its continued innovation. StopTheHacker provides the most affordable, enterprise-class malware scanning available today and we will ensure it will only get better moving forward."


Security is an extremely important focus for companies, and should become a popular time for partnerships and acquisitions.
