Cisco picked up IronPort today for a nice chunk of change. This helps to plug the messaging content hole in Cisco's "security in the network" offering. Given that IronPort's revenue's were probably around $100m, it keeps the multiple for acquisitions in the security and anti-spam product space up at around 8 to 10. This is a good thing.
