Security solutions are a very big deal nowadays and only getting bigger, so that makes plenty of sense for a deep-pocketed technology giant without a horse in the security race.   Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO) does sell network security products and services but would welcome an extra helping of market credibility; Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) has the wherewithal and the end-to-end ambitions, and its software-based portfolio fits nicely with the world view of new CEO Leo Apotheker.And this quarter's high-quality results did nothing to hurt Check Pint's chances of finding a buyer.
