IT PRO UK reviewed Finjan's Vital Security Web Appliance NG-5000S for businesses and NG-6000S for mid-large organizations and gave both appliances five stars as well as the editor's choice distinction, stating particularly about the NG-6000S that for Web content security you'll be hard pushed to find defences that are tougher than those offered by Finjan's Vital Security appliances. The use of security policies makes the NG-6000S very versatile, deployment is a breeze and the active real-time content inspection is quite unique.

Network Computing reviewed Finjan's Vital Security Web Appliance NG6000S for mid-large organizations as well and concluded: During testing we found the NG-6000S very easy to deploy and capable of delivering extremely tough web security measures. Finjan's active real-time content inspection delivers strength in depth, and it is clearly a superior alternative to traditional signature based inspection techniques.

SC Magazine reviewed Finjan's Vital Security Web Appliance NG-8000S for large enterprises and gave it a top rating of five stars for greatly improved management interface, policy-based web security, extensive deployment scenarios, IBM blade-server platform and unique behavioural blocking technology.

These reviews by three independent reviewers confirm the rich functionality and maturity of our products as well as the superiority of our Web security technology. Finjan offers an all-round security solution for businesses of all sizes, said Yuval Ben-Itzhak, CTO of Finjan. Utilizing our patented behavior-based web security technology our products inspect inbound and outbound web communication (HTTP, SSL, FTP, IM) to prevent incoming malware attacks and outgoing data leakage in real time.

The Vital Security Web Appliance products also feature agile and flexible policy management system; sophisticated reports and customized dashboards; simple directory integration and authentication; rich network topologies and protocols support; three integrated Anti-Virus from McAfee, Sophos, Kaspersky as well as two integrated URL filtering databases from Websense and IBM ISS, as optional modules - making it a truly all-round web security solution, Ben-Itzhak added.

Real-time crimeware filtering is a critical component of a Secure Web Gateway as the Internet and Web have become major infection channels. Finjan's Vital Security Web Appliances are excellent solutions for businesses looking for zero-day protection from Web threats. All products are preconfigured with an extensive range of security policies and provide granular policy controls using a clean UI look with a customizable dashboard.
