Cisco to buy ScanSafe

Cisco Systems, said on Tuesday, that it would buy security software firm ScanSafe for about $183 million.
Cisco said the deal, whose price tag includes cash and retention-based incentives, would close, subject to various conditions, in the second quarter of its 2010 fiscal year. ScanSafe provides a wide range of companies, including small businesses and global enterprises, with software-as-a-service (SaaS), a model of software deployment where applications are licensed to customers for use as a service on demand. SaaS software vendors may host the application on their own Web servers or download the application to the consumer device.
