       The Need for Mobile Code Security
       New mobile code Internet technologies, such as Java and ActiveX, offer
       seamless communication between different computer operating systems by
       sending mobile code across the Internet. Unless adequately protected,
       however, security threats are possible when Java and ActiveX are
       misused or maliciously manipulated. By exploiting code, hackers can
       change the entire behavior of a client machine.
       Finjan's SurfinGate, SurfinCheck and SurfinShield Xtra solutions help
       the enterprise benefit from Java and ActiveX by offering patent
       pending security technology together with granular control. SurfinGate
       also includes smart filtering for Visual Basic Script and Java Script,
       plus cookies and plug-in control for added security.
       RSA's JSAFE offers a powerful extension to the Java security model by
       providing advanced encryption capabilities. JSAFE supports deployment
       on a broad range of environments -- from distributed client
       applications to servers that run critical corporate operations.
       In addition, JSAFE's interface with RSA's BSAFE toolkit offers Java
       developers flexibility in combining the Java language with native code
       to further enhance performance.
