Aruba Buys Network Chemistry's Security Line

The additional products are expected to help Aruba's customers detect network vulnerabilities, intrusion attempts, and policy violations.

Aruba Networks on Monday acquired Network Chemistry's line of wireless security products for detecting network vulnerabilities, intrusion attempts, and policy violations.

Aruba said Network Chemistry's RFprotect and BlueScanner will complement its own line of wired and wireless security products, resulting in a comprehensive system for business customers. Aruba's approach involves centrally managing wireless local area network (WLAN) security and policies.

RFprotect Distributed is Network Chemistry's patent-pending wireless intrusion detection and prevention system that incorporates a central security engine, designed to detect threats to corporate networks and to prevent attacks.

RFprotect Mobile is a tool for conducting site surveys, security assessments, and other analysis of wireless networks.

BlueScanner is a portable tool for discovering and assessing vulnerabilities related to Bluetooth technology.

"Aruba has consistently led the industry with respect to client-to-core security solutions, and with this acquisition we have now rounded out our RF Layer 1-2 security offerings," Dominic Orr, Aruba's president and CEO said in a statement. "Network Chemistry's products have consistently won accolades for their ability to accurately find wireless network equipment, detect unauthorized devices, and enforce networking policies. By integrating this capability into Aruba's product family we will extend our position at the vanguard of wireless security providers. We look forward to working with, and providing uninterrupted support to, Network Chemistry's large base of existing enterprise and government customers."

Additionally, Aruba plans to integrate the newly acquired products into its mobility offering, meanwhile continuing to provide support to existing Network Chemistry customers.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
