HP Plans Fortify Acquisition

Hewlett-Packard has agreed to acquire Fortify Software to add another layer to its application security portfolio. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to HP, the acquisition of Fortify will allow HP to help organizations meet compliance regulations and bolster security by integrating security assurance into the development lifecycle. When the deal closes, HP will run Fortify initially as a standalone company. Fortify will eventually be integrated into the HP Software and Solutions business, with its products becoming part of the company’s Business Technology Optimization application portfolio, HP said.

Forrester Research analyst Mike Gualtieri calls the proposed acquisition “a great move for HP.” He adds, “It is a perfect fit for their tools given the integration they have done with Fortify over the past few months. Developing secure applications will always be important and too many app dev organizations don’t know where to begin.”
