Dell comprará SecureWorks para reforzar la seguridad informática
Dell Inc acordó comprar SecureWorks, una compañía de seguridad informática, para ampliar su negocio de servicios de tecnología.
Dell, que no dio a conocer los términos de la adquisición, dijo que no planeaba adquirir ninguna otra empresa de seguridad.

La compra llega en momentos en que la consolidación del sector de seguridad está aumentando.
Intel Corp acordó el año pasado comprar al fabricante del programa de seguridad McAfee Inc en 7.700 millones de dólares, mientras que Hewlett-Packard Co adquirió a la empresa de de gestión de seguridad ArcSight en 1.500 millones de dólares.
"Esto demuestra que la seguridad va primero en la lista de prioridades en la infraestructura corporativa", dijo Daniel Ives, un analista de FBR Capital Markets & Co.
