RSA laying off unspecified number


RSA, the Bedford-based data security division of Hopkinton data storage company EMC Corp., is laying off an unspecified number of workers. In an e-mailed statement, EMC did not reveal the number of job cuts, but said it “intends to end 2013 with more employees than the business had at the beginning of the year.”

RSA makes a variety of security products, including authentication systems to prevent data thieves from accessing sensitive information. The company’s SecurID tokens, which automatically generate random passwords, are widely used by banks and government agencies to protect confidential information.
