EMC expects Tablus to play a key role in its information-centric security and storage lineup. Tablus' balanced information leak prevention (ILP) offering will benefit both sides of the EMC/RSA house, boosting the latter's run at the title of information and risk market leader. Tablus' data classification capabilities will broaden EMC's Infoscape beyond understanding unstructured data at rest; its structured approach to data detection and protection will provide a data-centric framework that will benefit RSA's security offerings like encryption and key management. While holding a lot of potential, this latest acquisition by one of the industry's heavyweights will require comprehensive integration efforts at both the technology and strategic level. It will also increase the pressure on other large security and systems management vendors to address their organization's information risk management pain points. More importantly, it will be remembered as the turning point that led to the demise of the standalone ILP market as we know it today.
