Microsoft Buys Israeli Data Protection Firm, Secured Dimensions

secured-dimensions.pngRed Herring reports that Microsoft has bought Secured Dimensions, an Israel-based data protection startup, for a priced rumored to be a few million dollars. Secured Dimensions, a two year old company funded for just $600,000, is already proudly sporting “A Microsoft Subsidiary” on their website, and is in the business of protecting applications from being reverse engineered, cracked or pirated.

SecureLM.net is the first end-to-end solution to allow software vendors and publishers to protect their .NET applications or services, build dynamic software packages (evaluation and commercial ones), distribute their software to end-users and then monitor their customer preferences and behavior. Optional store-front closes the loop with integrated, on-demand eCommerce and online payment options.

Word is Microsoft may use this internally to protect its own software and assist with development of company products, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they started offering it as an option in future versions of its software development products.
