CloudFlare, a security company, announced that it has purchased StopTheHacker, a boutique firm that makes anti-malware software. Financial terms of the acquisition deal were not disclosed, according to Tweak Town.

Because malware attacks have become more sophisticated these days, customers have become more interested in fighting these malicious attacks. The San Francisco-based CloudFlare is presently in the process of enhancing its own product offerings, the report stated.

Under the terms of the said deal, CloudFlare promised that there will be no changes for the current customers of StopTheHacker amid the integration of the latter, the report detailed.

CloudFlare Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Matthew Prince explained in a blog announcement: "Going forward it will be business as usual for existing StopTheHacker customers and partners,. We will continue to operate the StopTheHacker service and invest in its continued innovation. StopTheHacker provides the most affordable, enterprise-class malware scanning available today and we will ensure it will only get better moving forward."
