"We are currently experiencing a new generation of viruses, worms and other types of malicious mobile code attacks," said Shlomo Touboul, founder and CEO of Finjan Software. "This new generation spreads faster than ever before and can infect millions of computers in minutes. A security strategy using only traditional signature-based security solutions is far too slow to protect against these new threats therefore, proactive behavior inspection technology must be implemented to close this window of vulnerability left open when companies are waiting for an update."
Finjan solutions use proactive technology and provide protection to their owners before damage can be done. Finjan's content security products, SurfinGate(TM) for Web, SurfinGate for E-mail, SurfinShield Corporate and SurfinGuard Pro, provide proactive defense against malicious script execution flaws and mobile malicious code attacks. Its patented behavior inspection
engine will protect computer users from similar future vulnerabilities and comparable potential exploits.
