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.
