Finjan Debuts SurfinShield Corporate 4.0
FINJAN Software, has introduced SurfinShield Corporate 4.0, a desktop security system designed to offer law firms and corporate environments with secure, full use of the Internet and e-commerce.
The software allows firm administrators to centralize security management for networked desktop PCs, and to set firm-wide security policies for thousands of users from a central console, it says. It can be used to create "white lists" of approved sites, and "black lists" of blocked URLs, which can be tailored to specific individuals or groups, says Finjan.
SurfinShield protects against "mobile code" problems, by monitoring Java and ActiveX elements running on individual PCs, says Finjan, which is headquartered in San Jose, Calif.
In essense, the software creates a "DMZ" zone that isolates mobile code, it explains. If a security policy is violated, the mobile code element is killed and the user is alerted, says the company.
The browser is not shut down, thereby protecting the PC, it says. SurfinShield Corporate consists of client and server softwware, as well as a central management console for administrators, it reports.
New features include Auto-Launch Blocking, which prevents Web users' Microsoft Office Suite applications and Qualcomm's Eudora from being launched (and files copied or erased) without the user's knowledge, says the company.
