Sophos Ltd. Key Developments

Sophos Appoints Paul Walker to its Board of Directors

Finjan Provides Sophos Litigation Update

Finjan Holdings Inc. announced that in accordance with the local patent rules of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California (NDCA), a Claim Construction or Markman Hearing was held in connection with the Sophos litigation on February 13, 2015. The Company will issue an update when the Order is entered. Finjan Holdings' wholly owned subsidiary Finjan Inc. filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Sophos on March 14, 2014 (Case No. 14-cv-01197-WHO (NDCA)). Finjan asserts that Sophos is infringing eight of its patents: 6,154,844; 6,804,780; 7,613,918; 7,613,926; 7,757,289; 8,141,154; 8,566,580; and 8,677,494, which cover endpoint security, web and messaging security, and networking and perimeter defense technologies. The Markman Hearing is an important pre-trial event in a patent lawsuit, wherein the Court will construe the asserted patent claims after consideration of the parties' evidence. Claim construction findings can often encourage settlement and, in some instances, inform the parties of a likely outcome.

Sophos announced the appointment of Joe Levy as chief technology officer (CTO). Prior to Sophos, Levy was CTO for Blue Coat Systems following the company's May 2013 acquisition of security analytics pioneer Solera Networks, where he had served as CTO since 2008.
