PALO ALTO (California): The Hewlett-Packard Co says it is buying Fortify Software to beef up its cybersecurity offerings. It did not disclose financial terms of the buyout.
Fortify is a privately held company based in San Mateo, California. It helps businesses identify and fix security weaknesses in their computer systems.
HP and Fortify began marketing their software security technology as a package last year.
For now, HP said that it will run Fortify as a standalone business before integrating the company into its broader software division. — AP
