Popular password management service LastPass has been acquired by LogMeIn (a remote computer-access firm) for a total of $125 million. The deal is expected to close in the coming weeks.

"LastPass has a remarkable business, a beloved and award winning product, millions of loyal users, and thousands of remarkable business customers – they are synonymous with the category," assumed LogMeIn’s Chairman and CEO Michael Simon.

"We believe this transaction instantly gives us a market leading position in password management, while also providing a highly favorable foundation for delivering the next generation of identity and access management solutions to individuals, teams and companies."

Back in September last year, LogMeIn acquired identity management service Meldium. Simon revealed that while the company will continue supporting both LastPass and Meldium in the near-term, the long-term goal is to merge them into a single offering based on the LastPass service and brand.

For those who aren't aware, back in June this year, LastPass reported a security breach, revealing that hackers managed to access some information including email addresses, password reminders, server per user salts, and authentication hashes.
