Security assistance tool for Firefox and Internet Explorer

Finjan announced the general availability of Finjan SecureBrowsing, an intuitive security assistance tool for end-users.

Finjan SecureBrowsing runs as an Internet Explorer and Firefox browser extension. To download and install Finjan SecureBrowsing, click here.

The software proactively alerts users to potential malicious content hiding behind links of search results, online email applications, ads and other popular websites. Finjan SecureBrowsing accesses each of the links in its current form on the web, and scans the relevant pages in real time using Finjan’s patented behavior-based technology. Each link is then marked with a safety rating – either safe (green) or potentially malicious (red). Finjan SecureBrowsing enables end-users to experience the same best-in-class security technologies currently in use at large enterprise customers.

Finjan SecureBrowsing offers a unique set of capabilities to deliver the highest rate of malicious code detection:

·         Scans in real-time all the dynamic code elements comprising each web page, rather than just the text
·         Detects potentially malicious content using real-time behavior-based content inspection, unlike other products that rely on static URL databases
·         Provides safety rating based on an analysis of the current page content, each time a link appears in the browser
·         Analyzes links in popular websites (Digg, Slashdot, Blogger, etc.) and online email applications (Gmail, Yahoo! mail), in addition to all of the major search engines
