VeriSign boosts security with iDefense acquisition

I was made aware of the fact that the security company iDefence was recently purchased by Verisign for $40 Million. Joris Evers has written a news article titled "VeriSign boosts security with iDefense acquisition". Verisign has acquired the Security intelligence specialist for $40 Million cash. Verisign has said it will be better placed to protect its approximately 1000 managed services customers. This is quite an interesting development especially considering my post yesterday about iDefence "iDefense ups the bidding for bugs".
