Sophos' Acquisition of Utimaco - DLP Consolidation

AV/Content security has been perceived as a contest dominated by two 800 pound gorillas (Symantec and McAfee) with Trend lagging behind. These three have about 1/2 their revenue coming from the consumer side, which Sophos lacks. Sophos' Utimaco acquisition makes them even a stronger contender in providing a more comprehensive security in the B2B space. This could become more of a four way race (5 if you include Check Point?) It'll be interesting to see if Code Green Networks (another DLP contender) is swallowed next and by whom.
