Security software maker McAfee is expected to announce as early as Thursday that it plans to acquire Wireless Security Corp., which would give it a greater presence in the consumer Wi-Fi security market, CNET News.com has learned.
With the acquisition of the privately held company, McAfee will receive additional security software in the consumer space, increase the number of security services it can provide and approach additional service providers such as America Online with services they can in turn offer to its customers, said a source familiar with the companies.
Representatives for two companies were not immediately available for comment.
