HP to Buy ArcSight for $1.5 Billion

As expected, Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) has agreed to acquire ArcSight for about $1.5 billion, cash. HP said this morning that it will pay $43.50 a share for the security-software maker, a 24 percent premium over it’s closing price last Friday. “From a security perspective, the perimeter of today’s enterprise is porous, putting enormous pressure on clients’ risk and compliance systems,” Bill Veghte, HP’s executive vice president of software and solutions, said in a statement. “The combination of HP and ArcSight will provide clients with the ability to fortify their applications, proactively monitor events and respond to threats.”

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
