On April 7, 2021 SecurityProfiling, LLC (“Plaintiff” or “SecurityProfiling”), represented by Christopher M. Joe of Buether Joe & Counselors, LLC filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Cisco Systems, Inc. (“Cisco” or “Defendant”) seeking appropriate damages and costs of litigation for alleged infringement of Patents owned by the Plaintiff. This case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas with Judge Alan D. Albright presiding.
In their complaint, the Plaintiff alleged that “Security Profiling is the successor in interest to Security Profiling Inc. of West Lafayette, Indiana. In or around the years 2002 and 2003, Security Profiling Inc. had developed a series of novel enterprise Anti-Vulnerability™ security systems. It was in the forefront of anti vulnerability technology that provided for multi-path remediation. The system was widely and favorably reported. The Anti-Vulnerability platform provided novel and best practice security policy compliance and enforcement capabilities to proactively and remotely manage and enforce standardized templates or custom enterprise security compliance policies.”
The Plaintiff further alleged that “Cisco is also continuing to violate 35 U.S.C. § 271(b) (“Whoever actively induces infringement of a patent shall be liable as an infringer”). Cisco will have had knowledge of the ʼ595 Patent since at least the date of the filing of this Complaint. With knowledge of the ʼ595 Patent, Cisco will have induced its customers to acquire CSE systems in this country and to practice in this country the methods of at least Claim 1. The inducement is apparent in the instructions that Cisco has provided and continues to provide to its customers, such as the instructions on how to use CSE systems that include the steps of the claimed methods.”
The Plaintiff also alleged that “Cisco has directly infringed and continues to infringe under 35 U.S.C. § 271(a) at least claim 1 of the ʼ063 Patent by making, using and marketing Cisco® Secure Endpoint (formerly known as Advanced Malware Protection or AMP for Endpoints system) (“CSE”). Plaintiff advised Cisco that it was infringing patents in the chain of ʼ063 Patent on January 31, 2018. Cisco thus was placed on notice of the SecurityProfiling’s inventions and that Cisco’s continued activities would infringe SecurityProfiling’s patent rights.”
There are four claims for relief laid down by the Plaintiff. The claims are for alleged direct infringement of the U.S. Patent no.10,893,066, 10,873,595, 10,609,063 and 9,100,431, respectively.
In its prayer for relief, the Plaintiff has requested the court to grant a judgment against the Defendant that it has infringed the 10,873,595; 10,893,066; 10,609,063 and 9,100,431, award damages, costs, expenses, prejudgment and post-judgment interest, and post-judgment royalties, also award treble damages along with costs of litigation.
