Finjan Software's Response:
Finjan's SurfinGate security application can block the 
HTTPS protocol, including the previously tested 
version - 4.0. Furthermore, SurfinGate 6.01 can be 
configured to allow only a limited number of HTTPS 
sites and connections via certain ports.
Timo explained to us that he wanted to configure 
Finjan SurfinGate to allow only HTTPS connections 
via port 443. We suggested upgrading to SurfinGate 
6.01 in order to define such a specific policy.
Even if encrypted communication is permitted by the 
security administrator, Finjan SurfinShield Corporate, 
which is installed on the user's desktop, will monitor 
active content behavior.
We thank Timo Proescholdt for checking SurfinGate, 
but we prefer to be contacted prior to publishing 
information of this nature in order to prevent any
