Google Acquired GreenBorder

Google acquired security company GreenBorder Technologies earlier this month. GreenBorder say they “will continue to support ... existing customers through the end of their current subscriptions.” Google blog quotes from an old About page of GreenBorder for context:

Headquartered in Mountain View, California, GreenBorder Technologies was founded in 2001 to bring a new approach to enterprise security. GreenBorder, the industry’s first Desktop DMZ software for Windows, keeps Internet invaders out and enterprise data in. It allows users to safely connect anywhere, go to any website, open any Internet email or attachment, and use any downloaded files without worry. GreenBorder’s unique, signature-less approach never needs updating and provides continuous protection against corruption, theft and invasion of business data systems.

Google in an email statement confirms the deal, adding “We were impressed by their small team of talented engineers and believe they can help to build products and features that will benefit our users, advertisers and publishers.”
