    CHICAGO, March 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aladdin Knowledge Systems
 (Nasdaq:   ALDN), an information security leader specializing in
 authentication, software DRM and content security, today announced the

 Aladdin eSafe features dual anti-spam engines for zero-hour, best-of-breed
 anti-spam and malware outbreak prevention, in addition to enhanced content
 security.

     Aladdin eSafe is the first to combine the world's best real-time
 reputation and deep content analysis technologies in one dual-engine
 solution, providing zero-hour spam sender reputation and malware analysis
 as well as real-time content analysis. All email traffic is checked against
 a continuously updated spam and spyware database for the most up-to-date
 protection available. Enterprises can now enjoy the most complete spam and
 malware detection solution, which is equally effective in any language or
 email format.
 
     The first anti-spam engine performs real-time sender reputation and
 distribution patterns analysis, monitoring traffic worldwide at ISP and
 other key email transfer locations to identify new spam and malware
 outbreaks as soon as they emerge. For emails from senders not catalogued in
 a local spam signatures database, Aladdin eSafe sends and receives a
 reputation query in real-time, classifying the email and blocking harmful
 senders. Aladdin eSafe proactively checks any mass distributed email --
 spam, fraud, phishing or malware -- without blocking legitimate emails such
 as newsletters and mailing lists.
 
     Performing simultaneous content analysis, the second engine prevents
 spam on three levels: phishing, fingerprint or fuzzy fingerprint. A
 combination of user-selected methods, some of which include smart signature
 matching, text analysis, URL categories and meta-heuristics, determine if
 incoming email is any form of phishing. Aladdin eSafe v6 Feature Release 2
 checks emails against known spam characteristics, like matching a
 criminal's fingerprint, as well as looking for corrupted or modified image
 files -- "fuzzy fingerprint." Fuzzy fingerprint analysis detects a "unique"
 spam message that is at least 10 percent different from any other spam
 message ever received, but still contains enough similar characteristics to
 be identifiable. Similarities include spam content as well as patterns of
 distribution, including the originating country, common subject lines, the
 host Web site and the path of the e-mail.
 
     "Aladdin eSafe 6 Feature Release 2 offers the most comprehensive email
 security available today," said Tsion Gonen, vice president of the Aladdin
 eSafe Business Unit. "Functions that normally require two or three products
 are automatically covered by Aladdin eSafe's dual engines, protecting
 enterprises from spam and malware with one integrated solution."
 
     This latest version of Aladdin eSafe also offers enterprises unique
 security by stripping meta-data from MS Office attachments to prevent
 exposure of hidden, confidential information embedded in Office files,
 including revisions and collaboration information, preventing incidents
 before they happen.
