Wetro LAN Attacks More Firewalls
- October 4, 2016
Wetro Lan LLC, an affiliate of patent monetization firm IP Edge LLC, has filed its first new cases since early 2015, bringing the number of defendants in this campaign to roughly 60. The new complaints separately assert the same patent (6,795,918) that has been at issue throughout, this time against Check Point Software (5:16-cv-00152), Comodo Group (Comodo Security Solutions) (5:16-cv-00153), Fortinet (5:16-cv-00154), Kaspersky Lab (5:16-cv-00155), and Panda Security (5:16-cv-00156). The ‘918 patent generally relates to filtering and managing data packets in networking equipment and security software; these latest defendants’ firewalls are the accused products.
