A10 Will Soon Ship Products Compliant with Trade Secret Injunction
A10 Will Appeal Ruling and Verdict
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 13, 2013
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A10 Networks, Inc., the
technology leader in Application Networking, announced that on February 12,
2013, Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal of the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California granted Brocade Communications Systems Inc.'s
("Brocade") request for a permanent injunction related to certain trade
secrets. The Court explicitly excluded from the order A10 products with
redesigned code that A10 has lawfully developed. After the verdict and out of
prudence, A10 began lawfully developing redesigned code and will soon begin
shipping compliant products. The order has no impact on customers' use and
possession of, or on A10's ability to support, AX Series units shipped before
"A10 has always acted lawfully and properly, and it will appeal the jury's
verdict and the court's rulings before the Federal Circuit," said Robert
Cochran, General Counsel at A10 Networks. "As is typical, our competitors
overstate the significance of this ruling. They also understate our legal
rights, including the rights to ship compliant AX Series products."
