     About Memory Firewall
     The Determina Memory Firewall is the result of years of groundbreaking
 research at MIT done by Determina co-founders Saman Amarasinghe, Derek
 Bruening, and Vladimir Kiriansky. The Determina Memory Firewall(TM) is the
 first technology that proactively blocks malicious computer attacks,
 preventing even a single unintended line of code from executing, and without
 false positives. Determina utilizes unique patent-pending technology which
 blocks attacks at the most fundamental level, by dynamically building a
 protective shield around programs while they run in computer memory. This
 groundbreaking approach has proven to be effective against all memory-based
 attacks -- such as Code Red, Blaster, Slammer and Sasser -- without false
 positives or ongoing overhead. Memory-based vulnerabilities represent by far
 the largest class of flaws in computer software, and nearly all of the most
 critical ones. Determina Memory Firewall is available today and being used by
 enterprise customers in industries demanding the highest level of availability
 such as manufacturing and financial services.
