Sunbelt is one of my favorite companies. Going up against the likes of Symantec, McAfee and Trend Micro, Sunbelt has won over many an account with Vipre, a lean, mean, malware-fighting machine.
Another of my favorites, GFI Software, is headed by an amazing entrepreneur -- one Walter Scott, who is now based on the island of Malta (yeah, I'm plenty jealous!).
Now, hopefully, we'll see the best of both worlds as GFI just bought Sunbelt. GFI plans to integrate Sunbelt products into its own portfolio.
I'm actually kind of bummed about this. Sunbelt has done an amazing job building its brand and trying to topple the big boys. I hate to see this name disappear.
On the other hand, GFI now has a much broader and deeper product set and will clearly be a company to watch. I'm sure Symantec will keep its eyes open.
