HP to buy security firm Fortify

Fortify's software allow developers to layer in security and compliance protections throughout the application creation cycle.

Mark Hurd may be gone, but Hewlett-Packard isn't standing still. The company said Tuesday that it will acquire Fortify Software, a security and compliance company.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed in the companies' joint statement. Over the past year, HP has been on a bit of a buying spree with the acquisitions of 3Com and Palm.

Compared with those deals, the acquisition of Fortify is more of the tuck-in variety. Fortify's software allow developers to layer in security and compliance protections throughout the application creation cycle. Fortify is best known for its 360 security suite.
