EMC announces acquisition of RSA. This is certainly a welcome move for RSA shareholders and customers as RSA has been sort of stagnating for a while. RSA could not move beyond the authentication space and EMC finds this space an important constituent in the enterprise market space. The security market itself is very hot – one of the hottest areas in the enterprise industry but more importantly this is an important area for EMC to move in. A flurry of activities in terms of acquisitions are seen in this space as well. For EMC,which is already on a roll, this is a good move(valuation may be seen to be high though). Legato, VmWware, Documentum and RSA –string of carefully chosen acquisitions – Vmware somebody values at 5 billion USD. EMC’s recent acquisition of proActivity clearly worried their competition in the document/record/business process management space. No doubt there’s a method in their madness. Three years, 17 deals, and $4.7 billion into an ambitious diversification drive, Tucci has quietly put together one of the most successful mergers and acquisitions records in the tech industry.EMC on the field is also executing well. All the while, EMC has hit earnings targets 13 quarters in a row.These well crafted set of moves should help EMC substantially in the days to come.
