Phil Hartstein is President and Chief Executive Officer of Finjan Holdings, Inc. Mr. Hartstein has worked in a number of technology and intellectual property related roles for over a decade.


In 1995, Shlomo Touboul, Finjan's founder and lead inventor on a number of our patents, became intrigued with the Java programming language. Shlomo realized the existing security software would not be able to contain or protect against the possible threats to a computer using Java. Founded in 1997, Finjan has generated more than $350M in income from the licensing of its intellectual property. In November 2009 the hardware and software divisions of Finjan were sold to M86 Security, a global computer security firm based in Orange, California with international headquarters in London and offices worldwide. M86 was subsequently acquired by Trustwave, who still use Finjan's technology patents under a licensing agreement.
