EMC has acquired Menlo Park, Calif.-based online fraud detection provider Silver Tail Systems. Silver Tail, which offers "real-time web session and behavioral analysis" for banking, e-commerce and government customers, will operate as part of RSA, EMC's security division.

Silver Tail's product will complement RSA's growing Big Data strategy.
