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.”

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
