Good Technology Settles Patent Litigation with Excitor
Asserting Good’s Foundational Patents Ends Favorably
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- February 4, 2013
Good Technology Corporation, the leader in secure enterprise mobility,
announced today that it has resolved its patent litigation against Excitor
A/S, a Denmark-based company. Under the terms of the settlement, Excitor
agreed to a cash payment and a royalty-bearing license to certain of Good’s
fundamental patents. The remaining terms of the settlement are confidential.
At the heart of this and Good’s other lawsuits is Good’s technology, which is
vital to the utility, function, and safety of mobile data and devices.
Smartphones and tablets have become the most important and ubiquitous piece of
technology; Good has pioneered the technology and products critical to the
backbone and safety of these mobile devices.
“Our focus continues to be solving real world customer problems. Customers
today want to empower mobility within their businesses,” said Christy Wyatt,
President and CEO of Good. “We have a long, rich history of innovation which
enables our customers to safely mobilize their enterprise. We will continue to
invest in these market-leading solutions and will vigorously defend those
investments where required to the benefit of our customers and shareholders.”
Good is pursuing other potential infringers of its patents. Recently, Good
filed patent infringement lawsuits against MobileIron Inc. and AirWatch LLC in
U.S. District Court, Northern District of California. In a lawsuit filed in
2011, Good likewise alleges that Fixmo and Little Red Wagon Technologies
infringe Good patents. This case is pending in U.S. District Court, Northern
District of Texas.
Founded in 1996, Good’s innovations in the area of mobile security and
management have resulted in broad intellectual property protection for its
innovations, including over 75 early, highly-cited, foundational patents. For
