Twitter has just acquired anti-malware vendor Dasient, who is no longer developing for the security industry. “Effective immediately, we will be bringing our technology, tools, and team to the revenue engineering team at Twitter,” Dasient wrote on its blog. “As part of this merger, Dasient is winding down its business and is no longer able to accept new customers.”
So, what does that indicate to you?
- Does Twitter know that the Internet is a dangerous playground, and is investing in application security from the inside out?
- Are they hedging their bets that they can re-enter the security market with a new Twit-Brand?
- Was it just the right time and place to merge development resources?
