Centripetal Networks Files Patent Infringement Complaint Against Keysight Technologies and Ixia

July 31, 2017

Centripetal Networks Is Committed to Protecting Its Groundbreaking Innovations

Herndon, VA. – July 31, 2017 – Centripetal Networks, the first company in the cybersecurity market to fully operationalize and automate threat intelligence through its Threat Intelligence Gateway platform, today announced that it has filed a complaint against Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) and Ixia in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division.

The complaint asserts that Keysight and Ixia’s ThreatARMOR, Vision ONE, and Application and Threat Intelligence products and services are infringing at-least four key patents owned by Centripetal Networks. These patents generally relate to protecting networks by quickly identifying new network security threats, identifying compromised hosts, and dynamically managing massively scaled network security policies.

“Centripetal Networks prides itself on creating new technology that is on the leading edge of industry innovation with our proprietary network security hardware and software”, said Steven Rogers, CEO of Centripetal Networks. “We founded Centripetal Networks to bring to life these fundamental advancements and our wide-ranging patent portfolio demonstrates our commitment to protecting those innovations.”

Mr. Rogers continued, “We filed this lawsuit only after it became clear that Keysight and Ixia were using the technological advantages enabled by our intellectual property to enter the network security market and develop their own competing products. We owe it to our scientists and engineers to vigorously defend our valuable portfolio of patents against these infringements.”

Centripetal Networks seeks both damages and injunctive relief to stop Keysight and Ixia’s continued infringement. Centripetal Networks further noted that it is continuing to investigate Keysight and Ixia’s products and services and will file further claims if additional infringement is discovered.
