Cisco Picks Up Protego
Protego supplies security monitoring and threat management appliances to enterprises. The firm’s core offering is the PN-MARS family of appliances, which manage security across routers, switches, and firewalls as well as intrusion and detection devices.
With just 38 employees, the acquisition equals around $1.7 million per Protego staff member -- proof, if any were needed, that security is still big business.
Should we be surprised by the deal? Not really: Cisco has been flashing its cash throughout 2004, and it has been focusing particularly on security.
