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 the US District Court in Delaware has ruled in favor of Finjan, affirming a jury verdict against Secure Computing Corporation currently owned by McAfee. The Court issued a permanent injunction against the sale of the WebWasher and TSP Products for infringement of Finjan's U.S. Patent Nos. 6,092,194 / 6,804,780 / 7,058,822. The Court also affirmed the jury's damages award and determination that the infringement was willful and enhanced the damages' award for the willful infringement of Finjan's patents. The Court also agreed with the jury's determination that Finjan does not infringe any of the patents asserted by Secure Computing.

"It is an important day for Finjan and a great win for Finjan's web security technology," said Gadi Maier, Chief Executive Officer at Finjan. "We are pleased with the Court's ruling regarding our ownership rights to this technology, and Finjan will enforce the injunction we obtained.

Finjan's real-time web security technology via on-site appliances and cloud-based security is designed specifically to provide real-time protection against these types of advanced web threats and cyber crime techniques."
