Dell (DELL) continues its software acquisition spree, reaching a deal to buy data protection software provider Credant for an undisclosed sum. Credant's products encrypt and control access to data for PCs, mobile devices, and flash drives, among other things. The purchase meshes with Dell's acquisition of firewall/security software vendor SonicWALL. Credant competes with Symantec and EMC's RSA Security unit. (PR)
