Finjan licenses software to Microsoft

Finjan Software has signed a licensing agreement with Microsoft that gives Microsoft nonexclusive rights to use certain Finjan-owned Internet security technology patents.

The agreement also makes Microsoft a minority shareholder in Finjan.

Finjan holds a wide range of patents dating back to 1996, said Asher Polani, Finjan's chief executive officer.

"Finjan has done some interesting product innovation in the security space," said Kenneth Lustig, managing director of intellectual property business development at Microsoft, in a written statement. "We are pleased to have access to this intellectual property as we work to advance the state of security innovation throughout the industry."

"We are very pleased with this new cooperation with Microsoft," Polani said in a written statement. "Both companies believe that innovative measures are required to achieve greater security."
