Finjan files patent infringement lawsuit v Zscaler

Cybersecurity licensing company Finjan Holdings said that “after more than one year of good faith efforts to resolve a patent dispute with Zscaler, Inc,” its subsidiary Finjan, Inc. filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Zscaler in the US Northern District of California.

Finjan said it filed a complaint alleging that Zscaler’s products and services infringe at least four US Finjan patents.

“Finjan is seeking, among other things, a jury trial, past damages not less than a reasonable royalty, enhanced damages for willful infringement, and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs for infringement of each of the asserted patents, as well as preliminary and permanent injunctive relief from continuing to infringe the ‘633 and ‘305 patents,” said Finjan.

Finjan said it also has pending infringement lawsuits and appeals against FireEye, Inc., Symantec Corp., Palo Alto Networks, Blue Coat Systems, Inc., ESET and its affiliates, Cisco Systems, Inc., SonicWall, Inc., Bitdefender and its affiliates, and Juniper Networks, relating to, collectively, more than 20 patents in the Finjan portfolio.
