More and more enterprises are becoming “borderless”, with an increasing
number of remote workers and branch offices. As a result, companies turn to
cloud-based web security to cost-effectively protect their users and data
everywhere. Companies realize that they need to maintain full control of
their web security and policy both on-premise and in the cloud. They also
demand that corporate data remain within the corporate boundaries and is not
stored in the cloud for privacy and regulatory compliance reasons.

Finjan’s cloud-based, hybrid and on-premise enterprise web security
solutions offer the industry’s most versatile set of web security solutions
for enterprises. Utilizing its patented active real-time content inspected
technology, Finjan’s solutions protect all users against crimeware and Web
2.0 attacks. Finjan Vital Cloud Hybrid seamlessly integrates Amazon’s EC2
robust cloud-based platform with Finjan’s on-premise web security solution.

Finjan’s Vital Cloud was tested by SaaS Distribution, the first value
added distributor in the cloud market and found it to be impressive. Stephan
Fox
, Solutions Engineer at SaaS Distribution, remarked: “Finjan Cloud
Security meets all the demands for SaaS solutions. We therefore consider
Finjan Cloud Security a highly competitive service for our channel partners
and other IT target groups.”

HMShost was also impressed with Finjan’s Vital Cloud after tests. Erik
Wouterson, Senior Systems Engineer at HMShost stated: “With this cloud
solution we will have better control of our roaming users, and all that with
a stunning performance.”

Finjan’s Vital Cloud also received accolades from leading industry
analysts, including IRG.

“The need for security doesn’t diminish when an employee works from a
branch office, at home or on the road – if anything it increases” noted Peter
Christy
, Principal Analyst of the Internet Research Group. “Combining the
strengths of cloud-based security with those of on-premise solutions,
Finjan’s Vital Cloud Security offerings provide uniformly managed and
cost-effective solutions for today’s increasingly stringent demands for web
security and control.”

David Reichman, Executive Vice President and COO at Finjan added: “Finjan
Vital Cloud and Finjan Vital Cloud Hybrid solutions are the first cloud
security solutions extending on-premise unified web security into the cloud.
With these scalable solutions, it is easy to apply consistent security
policies to users, regardless of their location. The mix of cloud and
on-premise security allows each specific enterprise to have a tailored
solution according to its needs. This minimizes the total cost of ownership
while retaining policy control to the full extent and keeping minimum latency
to ensure the quality of end-user experience.”

    Features and benefits of Finjan's Vital Cloud Enterprise Web security:

    - Central management with global reach: adaptable to all users
      regardless of their location - on-premise or remote. Policies for on-
      premise appliances as well as for the cloud-based scanners are always
      in sync and are centrally managed via a single management console.
      Consistent policy regardless of location is ensured, as well as
      comprehensive aggregated reporting.

    - Multi-layered web security to protect the entire borderless
      enterprise. Utilizing Finjan's patented real-time content inspection
      and zero-day threat detection, Finjan Vital Cloud ensures that
      organizations are protected against the latest Web threats and enables
      the safe, productive use of the Web.

    - Instant scaling up and down as needed. This provides
      organizations with maximum flexibility to adapt to changing business
      needs. IT can add/remove cloud-based scanners as needed within minutes.

    - Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by combining
      on-premise unified Secure Web Gateway at the headquarters with cloud-
      based scanners, and improving IT personnel efficiency.

Additional features and benefits of Finjan Vital Cloud Hybrid model
includes:

    - Flexible deployment options: tailored to best suit
      enterprise-specific needs. Utilizing Finjan's hybrid model, the
      solution applies the most effective balance of on-premise appliances
      with scanners in-the-cloud for each enterprise customer. This highly
      flexible approach secures enterprise headquarters with on-premise
      appliances, as well as remote workers and branch offices with cloud-
      based virtual scanners.

    - Data Privacy and Compliance: unlike alternative cloud-based
      solutions currently available, Finjan ensures that confidential data
      remains within the corporate boundaries and are not stored in the
      cloud. This assists enterprises with their regulatory compliance.
