Aladdin Granted Significant European Patent for Real-Time Web Threat Inspection


Aladdin Recognized with Microsoft Competency in OEM Hardware Solutions

CHICAGO, November 28, 2006 - Aladdin Knowledge Systems (NASDAQ: ALDN), the leader in Software DRM, identity management and content security solutions, today announced it was awarded European Patent EP 1122932, titled “Protection of computer networks against malicious content.” Granted on August 9th, the new patent significantly strengthens the intellectual property portfolio surrounding the Aladdin eSafe™ content security solution and its unique NitroInspection™ technology. Europe remains a key market for Aladdin, underscoring the importance of protecting Aladdin’s intellectual property throughout European Union countries.

EP 1122932 is directed to content security gateways that relay data packets in real time, while performing full content inspection without introducing delays and latencies. In case of unsafe content, it can be blocked, stripped or replaced by other safe content. Using this patented technology, the Aladdin eSafe NitroInspection technology can perform 10 times faster than the competition. Unlike proxy solutions, NitroInspection does not cache content prior to inspection. All data packets are inspected on-the-fly, providing security without sacrificing performance, including benefits such as:

* Improved user experience
* No time-outs
* No browsing slowdowns
* Complete transparent
* Fast and efficient

Those benefits, coupled with high performance, place Aladdin in a unique position to offer eSafe as a high-end security platform for service providers to provision value-added security services to customers. This eSafe platform, which is based on the patented NitroInspection technology, can scale up to hundreds of thousands of protected broadband Internet users without affecting their user-browsing experience.

“This is a very significant patent for Aladdin,” said Shimon Gruper, vice president of technologies for the Aladdin eSafe Business Unit. “It covers the core technology within the eSafe product that enables it to provide our customers Maximum Security with Extreme Capacity. Once again, the technology behind eSafe stands above the competition and proves Aladdin’s technological leadership in the secure content management market.”
