March 13, 2008 - IT Security vendor Finjan Inc. won a patent infringement lawsuit against Secure Computing Corp., but Secure Computing is appealing the verdict because it doesn't believe it infringed the patents and contends that the patents are invalid.
Yuval Ben-Itzhak, Finjan's chief technology officer, said the patents in question all have to do with proactive, real-time malware detection and mitigation capabilities that are built into his company's Web security products.
I cannot wait to learn of the impending case due to the appeal by Secure Computing vs. Finjan. I would think that the patents would not be invalid if a judge ruled against Secure Computing.
My guess is the patent infringement appeal case will be thrown out of court. I'll keep up with your blog to find out.
