Google acquires software firm Zynamics
Google has agreed a deal for Zynamics.
Sales negotiations between Zynamics and Google have been successful, with both organisations a deal has been completed for the latter to acquire the former.
An entry on the Zynamics blog confirmed that negotiations have been concluded: "We're pleased to announce that Zynamics has been acquired by Google."
The search giant later confirmed that sales negotiations had been successful, telling TechCrunch that the organisation's products and knowledge base would help it to better protect users of its search engine.
According to the firm, the analytics software company's goals are in line with its own and the acquisition is a logical one.
"The Zynamics team will continue to develop innovative ways of applying their software analysis tools to protect users from malicious software," the search giant added.
Zynamics was founded in 2004 by Thomas Dullien, who has spent the last nine years working on solutions related to reverse engineering and code analysis.
