Cisco acquires IronPort

Happy New Year - its the year of the boar!
OK, I understand that Cisco wants to build a nice ecosystem around NAC and the service offering it can provide but I think it is a mistake to pick up some of the technology that could have built a better partner ecosystem rather then this approach. Cisco and IronPort seems to be an OK match but not a great one. Considering how many good player are out there in the Anti-Spam, Anti-Phishing marketing I think this was a short sighted purchase.
Well, Cisco seems to be on the buying spree again - lets hope it doesn't turn into a hog...
