Good Technology Settles Patent Litigation with Excitor

Asserting Good’s Foundational Patents Ends Favorably

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--()--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.
