Another 1/2 a Billion dollar purchase for Google

Actually 625 Million to be exact. Google announced yesterday the acquisition of communications security and compliance company Postini.

Postini offers a number of on-demand communications security and compliance solutions and serves more than 35,000 businesses and 10 million users worldwide. Postini’s services include message security, archiving, encryption, and policy enforcement tools which can be used to protect a company’s email, instant messaging, and other web-based communications platforms.

Google was already using Postini with their Gmail application. I guess if you don’t want to pay the bill anymore, just buy the company.
