EMC's RSA division plans to acquire data leak protection vendor Tablus.
Tablus sells software called Content Sentinel that monitors computers to reveal when they are being used to leak sensitive information. It is one of a growing list of products developed in the past few years to help CIOs demonstrate compliance with US regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley.
The acquisition, which is expected to be completed by year's end, dovetails with RSA's plans to develop a full portfolio of products that can be used to secure sensitive corporate information behind the firewall.
RSA did not disclose the financial terms of the deal.
