IBMlogo3 EbizIBM has finalized the purchase of security software provider Trusteer Ltd. for an undisclosed amount following a definitive agreement signed on Aug. 15.

Trusteer develops and provides software and cloud-based security-as-a-service products designed to help organizations prevent fraudulent activities and other potential threats against virtual networks, IBM said Tuesday.
