NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2015) - Finjan Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNJN), a cybersecurity licensing company, today announced that in accordance with the local patent rules of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California (NDCA), a Claim Construction or "Markman" Hearing was held in connection with the Sophos litigation on February 13, 2015. The Company will issue an update when the Order is entered.

Finjan Holdings' wholly owned subsidiary Finjan, Inc. filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Sophos on March 14, 2014 (Case No. 14-cv-01197-WHO (NDCA)). Finjan asserts that Sophos is infringing eight of its patents: 6,154,844; 6,804,780; 7,613,918; 7,613,926; 7,757,289; 8,141,154; 8,566,580; and 8,677,494, which cover endpoint security, web and messaging security, and networking and perimeter defense technologies.

The court dockets for the foregoing cases are publicly available on the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) website,, which is operated by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
