Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

ZEPHYR COVE, Nev., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VirnetX™ Holding Corporation (NYSE MKT: VHC), an Internet security software and technology company, today announced that on March 14, 2012, a Jury in the Eastern District of Texas determined that asserted claims of VirnetX's '504, '211, and '135 patents are valid over prior art asserted by Cisco. The Court in this case granted a judgment as a matter of law (JMOL) that Cisco failed to prove that VirnetX's '759 patent was invalid.

The Jury also determined that VirnetX did not prove that accused Cisco products infringed the patents in this case.

"While we are disappointed that the Jury did not find infringement in our suit with Cisco, we are pleased that the Jury found our patents to be valid," said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President. "This event will not deter our licensing efforts to the 4G LTE mobile markets.  Furthermore, the Jury's decision today does not alter the prior Apple Judgment."
