Anti-virus vendor Trend Micro last week announced its acquisition of Kelkea, a small provider of IP filtering and reputation services.

Kelkea provides a service that monitors e-mail traffic entering customers networks and identifies the IP addresses sending that traffic. The service then develops a reputation for each IP address based on the amount of spam and legitimate e-mail it sends.

Trend Micro officials said the company plans to integrate Kelkeas service into Trend Micros existing services.
