IT company EMC today announced its acquisition of NetWitness, a security analysis corporation based in Reston, Va.

NetWitness will become part of RSA, a security division of EMC. Combining the two enterprises will give security teams a deeper insight into the security outline of their organizations.

NetWitness provides security teams the resources they need to detect advanced threats in the cyber world, in turn preventing security breaches and hacking. RSA President Tom Heiser said cyber threats to corporation security in today's world require the type of security analysis and protection NetWitness provides.

“NetWitness has redefined the security landscape, providing a powerful solution of organizations seeking to gain immediate insight, precise clarity, and timely closure in the face of the toughest cyber threats,“ he said.

During a recent RSA conference, NetWitness revealed a new offering called Spectrum that replicated the knowledge, process and workflow of malware analysis. CEO of NetWitness Amit Yoran said EMC and his company share a complimentary vision for the future of security management, work with the same types of customers and have a respect for each other's cultures of innovation and growth.

Just some of NetWitness' tasks include: combating insider threats, zero-day exploits and targeted malware, advanced persistent threats, fraud, espionage, data leakage and continuous monitoring of critical security controls.

The acquisition transaction closed April 1.
