Independent Analyst Firm Recognises Finjan's Unified Secure Web Gateway Product as More Flexible, Efficient and Powerful Than Its Competitors' Solutions

- Butler Group's Independent Analyst Report Praises Finjan Unified Secure Web Gateway for its Highly Valuable Range of Enterprise-Strength in Web Security Capabilities

SAN JOSE, California, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Finjan Inc., a leader in secure web gateway products and the provider of unified web security solutions for the enterprise market, is proud to announce that its unified Secure Web Gateway (SWG) product has received high praise from Butler Group, a leading analyst firm.

According to the Butler Group report, Finjan's product has a particular strength in its "proven ability to deal with any type of Web-based threat generically, regardless of whether it has been defined by 'signature' in the global security community, as many competing solutions are known to leave organisations exposed to a window of vulnerability faced with such threats," said Alan Rodger, Senior Research Analyst, Butler Group.

Rodger continued, "As a proven means of countering many 'zero-day' attacks, the method of real-time code inspection that SWG uses is of particular value, and Butler Group believes this benefit should enhance many organisations' business cases for such a solution."

The report offers an in-depth analysis of Finjan's multi-layered Web security and Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) capabilities to address organisations' Web security requirements, including threats coming from Web 2.0 sites.

According to Alan Rodger, Senior Research Analyst, Butler Group, "On the principle that there are only so many ways in which code can mount attacks, recognising each of them in this way enables SWG to spot the danger generically, rather than solely by searching for the signature of particular malware, the method that many content security solutions rely upon. The advantage of SWG's generic detection of malicious code actions is that this method will deal with threats that have not yet been recognised by the various global industry alert systems - indeed, Finjan can detail evidence of cases in which the method used by SWG has provided protection in advance of malware signature information being circulated in the wider market, and therefore provided better security protection than market competitors."

    
    The report highlights Finjan's unified Secure Web Gateway as:

    - Providing a broad range of enterprise-strength content
      security capabilities
    - Preventing the need to look for individual solutions to
      achieve a unified Web security solution
    - Delivering more effective security and compliance
    - Combines control of all the different web content security facilities
      under one policy
    - Proven ability to deal with any type of Web-based threats
      pro-actively
    - Powerful, flexible reporting capabilities
    - Flexible configuration and range of adoption options
      addressing a spectrum of needs

"Butler Group believes that Finjan's unified Secure Web Gateway should be strongly considered by organizations. Finjan provides a more flexible, efficient, and powerful solution compared to its many Web content-oriented security competitors," said Alan Rodger, senior research analyst at Butler Group. "With its powerful, efficient and flexible Web security solution, Finjan solidifies its position as a leader in the unified Secure Web Gateway market."

"Finjan's unified Secure Web Gateway (SWG) is uniquely positioned to help organisations with their compliance, productivity and liability requirements when using the Web. The Butler Group report confirms that a unified Web security solution, utilizing active real-time content inspection technologies, is the recommended choice for organisations around the world. Our unified Secure Web Gateway enables companies, organisations and government agencies alike to enjoy optimal multi-layered protection in real-time," said Yuval Ben-Itzhak, CTO of Finjan.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
