(Acquired by CA)

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.

AbirNet was sold to Memco in June 1998. Memco itself was sold to Platinum Technology in the same year, with the latter being acquired by CA (NASDAQ: CA) in 1999.
