Secure Computing has completed its acquisition of CyberGuard after the move gained support from both sets of shareholders this week.
The firm signed a definitive agreement in September to acquire the appliance vendor for $295m.
As a result CyberGuard will be merged into Secure Computing. The merger creates a security firm with 17,000 customers and 1,300 resellers worldwide with distribution channels extending across more than 100 countries.
John McNulty, chief executive of Secure Computing said: "By combining the two companies, Secure Computing is the new market leader in the Unified Threat Management (UTM) market. It also accelerates our position in the Secure Content Management (SCM) market."
