Following last week's acquisition of app maker Mobile Data Labs, Microsoft is about to snap up another company: Secure Islands.
Secure Islands is based in Israel and specializes in protection of business data, wherever it may be stored.
The acquisition is currently subject to regulatory approval. Once complete, Microsoft plans to integrate Secure Islands' technology into its Azure Rights Management Service, which performs the same functions, more or less. The software giant says the goal in doing so is to achieve "a flexible architecture able to meet the most rigorous protection and compliance requirements", and that in combination with its data classification present in Windows and Office 365, it will get there.
