The never ending cat and mouse race to protect systems from hackers is on and appears to have no signs of slowing down.

Case in point: we just learned that F-Secure is expanding further into Mac OS X protection services with the acquisition of internet security firm Little Flocker.

As is usually the case with most private company acquisitions, the financial terms of the deal announced today were kept confidential.

Made available as F-Secure XFENCE, Little Flocker's technology will be used to improve the appeal of F-Secure's existing corporate and consumer Mac OS security products by adding behavioral, proprietary blocking technology.

The various upgrades will help protect the growing volume of Apple computers against modern targeted attacks.

Little Flocker's technology protects Mac machines by using behavioral-based analysis to monitor apps that attempt to access confidential files and system resources.

The same type of software is also designed to detect and block Mac ransomware, and a few more worms and odd viruses.

F-Secure plans to further enrich Little Flocker's core technology with its security cloud and implement it into Protection Service for Business, which will feature a management console with integrated security patch management and mobile device management.

Yet further down the road, the protection technology will be made available to consumers as part of F-Secure SAFE, a multi-device security product aimed at protecting the public agains several forms of cyber attacks.
