Finjan Software Adds Secure Computing to Growing Selection of Best-of-Breed Vendors

Bracknell, Berks: 15 June 2004 – Finjan Software, the leading provider of proactive content security and management solutions for global companies and Secure Computing Corporation (Nasdaq: SCUR), the experts in securing connections between people, applications, and networks™, today announced a worldwide OEM partnership which includes the licensing and integration of Secure Computing’s SmartFilter® into Finjan’s SurfinGate® for Web to offer an additional best-of-breed option to organisations looking for an integrated Web filtering solution and layered security protection.

SmartFilter's On-Box™ architecture provides outstanding performance by eliminating lags that result when all Web traffic has to be redirected from the proxy server, appliance, or firewall to an off-box server. Internet access is managed and monitored through the dynamic SmartFilter Control List that provides a comprehensive and proven database of millions of global URLs that may be considered unproductive and/or inappropriate for business or educational environments throughout the world. All Web page requests first pass through SmartFilter and are instantly evaluated against the organisation's Web policy using the SmartFilter Control List. Requests are then allowed, denied, delayed, or coached. The unique On-Box architecture has made SmartFilter the de facto standard for OEM integration into leading caching appliances and firewalls.

Combining SurfinGate for Web’s proactive behavior inspection technology to instantly block new Web-based virus, worm and malicious code attacks at the gateway, with SmartFilter’s URL filtering to block access to inappropriate Web sites to address issues around employee productivity, legal liability and bandwidth control, onto a single security platform allows for ease of use and management for IT departments of all sizes. As a result, organisations can manage and maintain multiple content security products from SurfinGate for Web’s single management console.

“We are pleased to be working with an industry leader like Finjan,” said Chris Peterson, vice president of OEM and channel sales at Secure Computing. “We are continuing to execute on our strategy of building licensing partnerships with important platform providers to offer our customers and channel partners a wide range of options for implementing Web filtering within their organisations.”

“IT departments realise that managing multiple single-point solution products in a heterogeneous network environment is a daunting, time consuming exercise that on a good day, can simply drain valuable time and resources, and on a bad day, can be completely unmanageable,” said Shlomo Touboul, founder and CEO of Finjan Software. “Finjan’s security solutions provide a unique approach to Internet security through integrating multiple best-of-breed security solutions onto a single platform for ease of use and management, without compromising security. With Finjan Software, customers have a growing list of premier security vendors to choose from, that now includes the highly accurate and widely respected SmartFilter URL filtering database.”
