Total Defense has acquired cloud security firm iSheriff, but it did not shoot the deputy

Total Defense, a former business of CA Technologies that offers cybercrime-fighting solutions, this morning announced that it has iSheriff, formerly known as Internet Sheriff. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Says Total Defense chief exec Paul Lipman:

“The days of employees safely accessing the internet from behind a corporate firewall are increasingly history for modern businesses.

Today’s workforce is increasingly mobile, connecting through a broad array of devices and adopting cloud services at an accelerating pace. This reality requires a new approach to security.”

New York, are you ready?

True enough. Total Defense recently announced its first cloud security product, simply called Total Defense Cloud Security, which is basically a cloud-based solution for Web and e-mail protection.

iSheriff, which was founded back in 1999, offers a similar SaaS solution.

In total, Total Defense says it protects over 40,000 businesses and over 4 million consumers from cybercrime and malware.
