The printer ink maker Hewlett Packard has announced its intention to buy Fortify Software, a US security technology firm. This acquisition is part of a move by the printer ink firm to widen its product base with the addition of security assurance software.

It will help it provide customers with solutions that help limit risk, adapt to compliance, and enhance cyber security. Eventually Fortify will incorporate into HP's software and solutions business and will be part of the company's business technology optimization application product range.

Bill Veghte, executive vice president for HP's software and solutions arm, said the deal would help the firm to deliver even better products for its customers. "With Fortify's leadership in static application security analysis combined with HP's expertise in dynamic application security analysis, organizations will have a best-in-class solution to improve the security of their applications and services," he said.

The printer ink maker is also set to showcase two new printers this September when it exhibits at a trade show in Sydney, Australia.
