    NetScout buys Network General


    NetScout Systems wants to purchase Network General for $205m, the company said today. The takeover will be the third time the once-leading packet monitoring firm has changed hands, 10 years after McAfee purchased Network General for $1.1bn. I used to work for NGC (formerly Network Associates) for 6 years and Netscout was always perceived as arch rival.
