Managed security service provider BlackSpider Technologies has been acquired by SurfControl for an estimated £20 million. SurfControl hopes the addition will let it provide multi-level products to address its clients' needs at the lowest possible cost.

John Cheney, chief executive of BlackSpider, will become general manager for on-demand security services, reporting directly to Patricia Sueltz, CEO of SurfControl.
