    John,

    I saw this too. My first reaction is OH NO!!!! CA swallows another company. Everyone seems to be on a yet anther buying binge.

    Agreed. At this rate there will be little independent left.

    Re: Computer Associates buys Tiny personal firewal

    I wonder if this means that there will be a shift away from ZoneAlarm at CA? Personally, I like ZAP, but CA's version always lagged behind the official Zone Labs version by a couple of revisions. It's possible that CA will incorporate TPF only into its enterprise versions, leaving ZAP for the consumer. Comments?

    CA probably bought TPF to avoid paying roayalties to Checkpoint and to have control over the product. Integrating (or bolting) it with the other CA software is highly likely.
