In a deal that underscores the shift toward cloud computing, Cisco (NSDQ: CSCO) on Tuesday said that it had reached an agreement to acquire ScanSafe, a privately-held provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) Web security for businesses.

Cisco said the acquisition will cost $183 million in cash and retention-based incentives.


Cisco said it intends to combine its IronPort Web security appliance with ScanSafe's Web security service to offer on-premises, hosted, and hybrid-hosted Web security.

The company also expects to integrate ScanSafe's service with Cisco's AnyConnect VPN Client to enhance security for mobile workers.
