SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 15 – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network — Fortinet — the pioneer and market leader in Unified Threat Management (UTM) and only provider of ASIC- accelerated, network-based antivirus firewall systems for real-time network
protection — today announced that it is seeking review of the initial
determination issued by the International Trade Commission (ITC) judge against
Fortinet regarding a patent infringement complaint by Trend Micro. Fortinet
will vigorously defend its intellectual property while it continues to operate
its global business as usual with no impact to partners and customers.
“Fortinet believes that it has been developing products with its own
proprietary technology,” said Ken Xie, founder, president and CEO of Fortinet.
“Fortinet has and will continue to operate with the belief that all companies
should respect the intellectual property rights of others.”
