EAST PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 15, 2015) - Finjan Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNJN), a cybersecurity company, today announced the launch of CybeRisk Security Solutions ("CybeRisk") to provide cybersecurity risk advisory services to customers around the world. Yoram Golandsky, who previously led Cisco's Cyber Security Center of Excellence as General Manager, has been named Chief Executive Officer of the new company. CybeRisk will service clients throughout Europe, North America, and other key global markets from its headquarters in Tel Aviv.

"Finjan was founded in Israel and, although we're now a Silicon Valley company, our roots there have always been a significant strength. We're excited to be launching CybeRisk in Tel Aviv, which has become the international ground zero for advancements in cybersecurity," said Phil Hartstein, President and CEO of Finjan. "As one of the world's leading security experts, Yoram is optimally positioned to guide the expansion of Finjan's portfolio of offerings into the international cybersecurity services sector."

Golandsky brings to his role of CEO more than 20 years of experience delivering security technology and advisory services in the financial services, ecommerce, and payment system industries. Prior to joining Cisco, he was founder and CEO of Security Art Ltd., a leader in providing worldwide cybersecurity and information risk management services. His other posts have included Head of Information Security at RSA, the Security Division of EMC; and Chief Security Officer at PriceWaterhouseCoopers Israel.

"I'm excited to be charged with building CybeRisk at a time when cybersecurity threats to major corporations and smaller organizations alike are all too real and the potential consequences severe," said Golandsky. "The team we've brought together has unparalleled expertise in providing tailored guidance on the technology side as well as at the board level."

CybeRisk's management team includes COO Eyal Harari, who also joins from Cisco's Cyber Security Center of Excellence. As Business Operations Manager there, Harari was responsible for the Center's commitments to its clients in regards to project initiation, deliverables, finance, quality, and timeframes, in addition to managing the Center's resources and reporting both internally and externally. Prior to his role at Cisco, Harari was Business Operations Manager of Security Art Ltd., and he has also served as Corporate Strategy Manager at Amdocs Inc. and as an independent consultant.

Finjan's investment in CybeRisk is in line with its strategy of reinvesting proceeds from successful cybersecurity investments, while continuing to support its patent monetization program.
