eSafe protect, previously known as Eliashim Antivirus was developed by EliaShim Ltd., and distributed by eSafe Technologies Inc., based in Seattle, WA. The company's development center was based in Haifa, Israel.[1]

Eliashim and its companies were bought by Aladdin Knowledge Systems Ltd. in December 1998.[2]

The program[edit]

EliaShim anti-virus was acquired by Aladdin Knowledge Systems in December 1998. eSafe Protect (the consumer desktop version) was distributed by Aladdin until it was discontinued in 2002.[3]

In the following years, the eSafe brand evolved into a gateway-based, full featured content security product which was sold by Aladdin Knowledge Systems, as an integrated Security appliance.[4]

In March 2009, Aladdin Knowledge Systems merged it with SafeNet Inc. and eSafe evolved to become the SafeNet eSafe Content Security product line.[5]
