AbirNet developed Internet and Intranet protection software to safeguard networks from intrusions and abuse. The company's system offered "see-it-all" filtering, blocking, alerting, logging and scanning technologies. The type of products it developed ultimately became known as "Intrusion Detection" software.
Exit: AbirNet was sold to fellow Israeli start-up Memco Software in June 1998. Memco itself was sold to Platinum Technology International in the same year, with the latter being acquired by CA (NASDAQ: CA) in 1999.
