  • Twitch, the wildly popular game-streaming service that has become an online destination for gamers of all types, has been sold to Google for $1 billion, according multiple news report. It was originally reported that Microsoft was considering acquiring Twitch to supplement its Xbox Live platform, but it appears now that Google has once again beat Microsoft to the punch. However, as of July 28, four full days after the initial reports, neither Google nor Twitch officials have issued statements confirming the deal. But now the immediate question is why Google would pay so much for the Twitch gaming service. While Twitch has certainly become a cult hit in the gaming world, it's nowhere near a household name. While Twitch claims it has more than 50 million users who sign on to the service each month, that number needs to grow considerably to match some of the other video sites on the Web that are streaming content and to help Google earn a healthy return on its $billion investment. This slide show examines why the company might have decided that the game-streaming service is worth so much cash.

In this slide show, developed with eWEEK reporting and an industry perspective from RSA, the security division of EMC, you'll get an inside look at an approach to security that can help security teams better detect, investigate and respond to advanced threats. This also enables security administrators to confirm and manage identities and prevent online fraud and cyber-crime. As attacker tactics evolve beyond rudimentary mass malware into precisely targeted, devastatingly advanced attacks, this strategy empowers organizations to effectively address those challenges that they have today and those that are sure to come.
