San Jose, California – (The Hosting News) – February 20, 2009 – Secure web gateway products firm, Finjan Inc., has debuted the launch of its unified Secure Web Gateway (SWG) version 9.2, combining multi-layered web security, productivity, compliance, liability and bandwidth control on one dedicated appliance.
Andy Kellett, Senior Research Analyst at Butler Group remarked, ”It is good to see that Finjan has moved on to cover the major areas of the infosecurity market that Butler Group predicts will be important in 2009, web protection, information security and data loss prevention. Finjan’s new Secure Web Gateway v9.2 covers all these issues and fits well around what we think Enterprises should be concentrating on.”
Finjan’s unified Secure Web Gateway is the first of its kind to provide enterprises with a cost effective web security solution with low administration cost. Instead of using multiple point solutions running on separate appliances, Finjan Secure Web Gateway combines multiple web security and control capabilities on a single appliance. All combined features are easily managed, using a user-friendly administrative GUI.
Finjan’s unified Secure Web Gateway combines: – Multi-layered web security to protect valuable business data against today’s cybercrime threats. Combining Finjan’s active real-time content inspection technology and optional anti-virus modules, the multi- layered solution provides protection against zero-hour vulnerabilities, evasive web attacks, code obfuscation techniques and drive-by attacks installing Trojans. Finjan’s technology has also been enhanced to inspect Acrobat Flash and PDF files in real-time. – Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) to protect enterprises from intentionally or unintentionally leaking sensitive corporate data by employees or Trojans.
Outbound communications inspection includes HTTP/SSL traffic and the prevention of ‘Trojans phoning home’ communications. – Productivity, URL filtering and Web 2.0 control to enable organizations to fully benefit from the Web and Web 2.0 applications while controlling employees’ productivity. – Applications control to increase employees’ productivity and prevent the leakage of corporate data by controlling the use of common applications per specific policy groups. Applications include Instant Messaging, Skype and P2P. – Secure content caching to accelerate web content access, improve user experience and save bandwidth cost.
In today’s economic climate, organizations are looking for a multi-layered and easy to manage Web security solution with low administration overhead and ownership costs. Finjan’s unified Secure Web Gateway is uniquely positioned to meet these criteria. Lower Total Cost of Ownership is achieved by utilizing a single appliance that centrally manages all security features. Savings on power consumption, floor space and hardware-related costs, as well as reduced administration time further contribute to low TCO.
Werner Thalmeier, VP Products for Finjan noted, ”For enterprises, getting maximum value out of their security products is more important than ever. They are looking for a unified security solution with low TCO and maximum benefits. Our new Secure Web Gateway release provides enterprise customers with a superior Secure Web Gateway solution that is easy to manage and has low ownership costs. It provides organizations with multi-layered web security, productivity and Web 2.0 control.

Kellet continued, ”I meet many Chief Information Security Officers who want to resolve the issue of DLP. They are, however, faced with issues relating to classifying and controlling data that require huge investments in resources and new technology. Recently we have seen a change in emphasis by CISOs who now want to invest in simplified DLP solutions while delaying broader solutions.”
Werner Thalmeier, VP Products for Finjan noted, ”Finjan’s new DLP module enables enterprises to prevent data leaving the organization via online communication channels. This creates a simple cost effective solution while they continue to develop their broader content discovery and categorization policy between the different business groups.”
