Network Associates denies sale rumors
"We are not in discussions with Microsoft or any other company to buy Network Associates," said Jennifer Keavney, a spokeswoman for the company.
The statement came after a trade magazine published an article quoting unnamed Wall Street sources and partners as saying that the company was on the block and considering a deal with Microsoft.
Network Associates normally stays mum on such speculation, Keavney said, but the level of interest in this rumor required a response.
