A couple days ago, McAfee announced that they intend to acquire Secure Computing. This move obviously boosts McAfee position in the overall security market.

From the McAfee Security Insights Blog:

I am excited to announce that McAfee intends to acquire Secure Computing, a leading provider of network security to businesses of all sizes. This pending acquisition clearly reinforces McAfee’s position as the largest dedicated security company and an industry leader in security risk management, providing our customers with the most comprehensive and integrated security offerings available in the marketplace today.

Richard Mogull and Mike Rothman both have good comments on the acquisition. Also, Spire Security Viewpoint put together a small timeline of other acquisitions made my McAfee.
