Symantec has acquired IMlogic to get into IM and email security:

LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwire – June 13, 2007) – Symantec Vision 2007 — Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced the newest version of Symantec Information Foundation, an integrated Information Risk Management (IRM) product suite that builds on the company’s Security 2.0 strategy. Symantec Information Foundation delivers advanced controls to safeguard companies against data loss with unified protection for e-mail, Web and instant messaging (IM). The new solution, expected to be available this summer, enables information entering or exiting the organization to be archived, audited and discovered through a validated process that ensures proper chains of custody.

With IMlogic’s technology they will also be able to battle “SPIM” Spam on Instant Messanger which can get pretty bad.
