CA acquires XOSOFT

Computer Associates (NYSE: CA) is acquiring privately held XOsoft, Inc., a leading provider of continuous application availability solutions that minimize application downtime and accelerate time to recovery. The acquisition enables CA to offer a complete recovery management solution that allows customers to minimize the risk of data loss, reduce the time spent on backups and expedite recovery of critical business services.

XOsoft's products provide uninterrupted access to all types of file and application servers-including Windows Servers, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft IIS and Oracle-and allow instantaneous recovery from any type of disaster. CA did not disclose terms of the transaction but unofficial estimates put the value of the deal at $100m. XOsoft serves more than 1,600 customers in 42 countries. The company was founded in 1999 and is headquartered in Waltham, MA with offices in New York, California and Israel. This would be CA's seventh acquisition in Israel.

Investors in XOsoft, which was founded in 1999, include Goldman Sachs Private Equity.
