NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Finjan
Holdings, Inc. (OTC MKT: FNJN) (the "Company") today announced its
subsidiary Finjan, Inc. ("Finjan") has been issued a new U.S.
patent (No. 8,566,580) expiring in 2032. The patent relates
to a proprietary system developed by the Company for splitting an
SSL connection between two security computers, designed
specifically to address network security concerns.
The techniques described in the '580 patent secure traffic in an
efficient and reliable manner requiring a minimal number of SSL
handshakes. Splitting an SSL connection or 'split tunneling'
allows a VPN user to access a public network (e.g., the Internet)
and a local network simultaneously, utilizing the same physical
network connection. However, split tunneling can also enable
users to bypass a company's gateway level security, which
represents a significant network security risk. The technique
covered by the '580 patent is intended to address this and other
critical cybersecurity issues.
"This patent is the latest in a long line of inventions that
Finjan has contributed in the cybersecurity space as a pioneer in
developing and patenting technology that proactively detects online
threats," said Finjan's President, Phil
Hartstein. "Finjan has more than twenty issued US
patents covering behavior-based security, intrusion prevention, and
access restriction technologies. The frequency and complexity
of cyber-attacks worldwide has made our intellectual property
increasingly relevant as we expect to see additional attack vectors
and new threats in the future."
The '580 patent is the most recent addition to the Finjan patent
portfolio which now exceeds 40 issued and pending patents
worldwide. The Company expects additional patent issuances in
both the United States and abroad
in the coming months.
Recognized internationally as a pioneer and leader in web and
network security, Finjan's decade-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 successfully licensed its patents to five
major software and technology companies around the world.
