Finjan Holdings Subsidiary Issued New U.S. Patent For Malicious Mobile Code Protection

Patent Covers Monitoring Systems and Methods for Defense against Network Security Threats Transmitted via Mobile Code

NEW YORK, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Finjan Holdings, Inc. (OTC MKT: FNJN) (the "Company") today announced its subsidiary Finjan, Inc. ("Finjan") has been issued a new U.S. patent - 8,677,494 (the '494 patent).  The '494 patent is the most recent addition to the Finjan patent portfolio which now exceeds 40 issued and pending patents worldwide.  This most recent patent issuance relates to a proprietary malicious mobile code runtime monitoring systems and methods, which Finjan began developing in the mid 1990's to address potential network security threats through better recognition of malicious code segments passing through Internet infrastructure and networks to endpoint devices. 

The techniques described in the '494 patent cover protection systems and methods offering security for one or more personal computers and /or other intermittently or persistently network accessible devices or processes.  Specifically, the inventive aspects of the patent cover various defenses from undesirable or otherwise malicious operations of Java TN applets, ActiveX™ controls, JavaScript™ scripts, Visual Basic scripts, add-ins, and downloaded/uploaded programs which are often downloaded by users without considering the inherent security risks.  Finjan was founded to develop technologies such as those captured in the '494 patent and has secured patent protection for innovations that beneficially affect PC users on a daily basis.

"Finjan has been recognizable at the center of the software security technology sector for nearly two decades," said Finjan's President, Phil Hartstein.  "This recent patent issuance is significant as it affirms the importance of our continued commitment to our innovative culture.  We expect to continue this trend of issuing patents into our portfolio, both in the United States and abroad, and investing in new technologies to combat relentlessly evolving threats in the cybersecurity space."

Recognized internationally as a pioneer and leader in web and network security, Finjan's decades-long investment in innovation is captured in its patent portfolio, centered around software and hardware technologies capable of proactively detecting previously unknown and emerging threats on a real-time, behavior-based basis.  Finjan has licensed its patents and technology to several major software and technology companies around the world and remains active in those efforts.
