Hewlett-Packard will soon purchase security vendor ArcSight for $1.5
billion, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.
Citing unnamed sources, the Journal said that the deal could be
announced as soon as Monday. ArcSight sells a well-regarded product that
gives system administrators a way to monitor their networks and activity
logs for signs of hacking or unauthorized activity.
The company had been a rumored acquisition target for the past few
weeks, with Oracle, HP, and IBM all named as possible suitors.
