Finjan's Award-Winning Vital Security(TM) Version 8.4 Sets New Standard for Proactive Web Security
New Release Provides Enhanced Manageability and Security With Improved Performance
SAN JOSE, California, November 28 -- Finjan Inc., the global provider of best-of-breed proactive web security solutions for businesses and organizations, today announced general availability of Vital Security(TM) Version 8.4 for all of its web security appliances. This version of Vital Security offers the most comprehensive and advanced behavior-based web security solution on the market, protecting corporate networks from all types of web-borne threats.
Version 8.4 extends the superiority of Finjan's patented behavior-based security technology, which is the only solution capable of safeguarding corporate networks from new and unknown types of malicious code that elude traditional signature-based solutions. Finjan has introduced several key new security enhancements, which help to further secure organizations from malicious content arriving via the web and meet compliance requirements, while minimizing false positives and ensuring the best possible user experience. Furthermore, infrastructure improvements have led to increased performance of up to 30%, depending on the configuration.
On the management side, Finjan has added important feature enhancements that allow network and security executives to configure, manage and maintain the solution efficiently and easily. Transparency enables companies to integrate Vital Security within their networks in a seamless manner, alleviating the management burden and ensuring full control over network security. These enhancements come on top of the system's existing powerful management functions, such as flexible rule-based creation of security policies and X-Ray mode, a unique feature that allows enterprise to test new rules on live traffic before they are actually enforced on the end user.
"As our customers have come to expect, the latest version of Vital Security reflects Finjan's unswerving commitment to maintain the technological superiority of our proactive behavior-based security solution," stated Eran Levin, VP Products at Finjan. "Equally important, we continue to invest major efforts in ensuring that our solution provides users with efficient manageability, optimal usability and maximum productivity."
Finjan's Vital Security Web Appliance utilizes patented behavior-based security to protect against the scourge of new and emerging web threats, such as those described in Finjan's quarterly Web Security Trends Reports ( http://www.finjan.com/Content.aspx?id=827 ). These types of sophisticated threats, including malicious code on caching servers and attacks that target Web 2.0 technologies, cannot be detected by traditional reactive security technologies. Finjan's proactive security is akin to having an "expert system in a box," safeguarding corporate users from malicious web content.
The fully integrated Vital Security Web Appliance proactively shields networks against all types of dangerous web-borne threats, like Spyware, Phishing, viruses, worms, Trojans, and other types of malicious code. Vital Security Web Appliance is an "all-in-one" solution, integrating Finjan's patented behavior-based security, Vulnerability Anti.dote(TM) and Anti-Spyware security engines with optional anti-virus and URL filtering in a single platform. By proactively detecting malicious and inappropriate web content at the enterprise gateway, Finjan's web security solutions enable organizations to control content coming into their network and to secure their valuable information assets.
Vital Security(TM) Version 8.4 is currently available for new and existing customers. Existing customers can update their current systems to this version at their convenience through a standard update procedure.
