Finjan has made available a free website browser security tool for users.

Finjan SecureBrowsing is an intuitive security assistance tool for end-users. The free service is aimed at both enterprise and consumer users and is being showcased at next week’s Infosecurity Europe show in London.

Finjan SecureBrowsing analyses website code in real time to provide users with safety ratings of URLs before they visit the sites.

Yuval Ben-Itzhak, CTO at Finjan, said, “By its nature, the web is very dynamic with website content changing continuously - a URL that was safe yesterday might contain malicious code today.

“Unlike other products that are based on static databases containing information on web domain reputations, Finjan SecureBrowsing scans each URL as it currently exists on the web, each time the address is displayed in the browser,” he said.

Finjan SecureBrowsing runs as an Internet Explorer and Firefox browser extension.
