Finjan Holdings Subsidiary Files New Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Sophos

Alleges infringement of Finjan patents relating to endpoint, Web, and network security technologies

FNJN) (the "Company") today announced its subsidiary, Finjan, Inc. (Finjan) has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Sophos, alleging infringement of Finjan patents relating to endpoint, web, and network security technologies.

The complaint, filed this morning in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, alleges that Sophos' products and services infringe upon six of Finjan's patents. In the complaint, Finjan is seeking undisclosed damages from Sophos.

"Finjan has a broad patent portfolio covering behavior-based intrusion prevention and detection technologies generally deployed across the endpoint, web and networking markets, resulting from years of substantial R&D," commented Finjan's President, Phil Hartstein. "With this new case, we continue down a path of protecting our proprietary inventions from unlicensed companies employing these technologies in direct competition to our existing licensing partners.

This latest action against Sophos reflects that mandate to actively enforce our patent rights, when necessary."

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 proudly licensed its patents and technology to several major software and technology companies around the world.

ABOUT FINJAN:

Founded in 1997, Finjan is one of the first companies to develop and patent proprietary technology and software that is capable of detecting previously unknown and emerging threats on a real-time, behavior-based basis, in contrast to signature-based methods of intercepting only known threats to computers, which were previously standard in the online security industry. Finjan continues to be a leading online security and technology company, developing and patenting new proprietary technologies related to software that proactively detects malicious code and thereby protects end-users from identity and data theft, spyware, malware, phishing, trojans and other online threats.
