Oracle buys oblix

Oracle has on Monday purchased an independent security company called Oblix based in Cupertino, California. This is an interesting purchase for Oracle in its current purchasing spree; it doesn't for instance fall into the same category as PeopleSoft. Why has Oracle purchased Oblix? Probably because Oblix has an identity management program that Oracle could well integrate into its own product suite. I am sure we will hear the real reasons. I found out about Oblix from a news item titled - (broken link) Oracle adds security firm to shopping basket" written by Alorie Gilbert on March 28.
