Visto Files Patent Lawsuit Against Good Technology

Visto Corporation announced today that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Good Technology. The suit, which alleges that Good's products and services infringe on multiple patents held by Visto, was filed in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Texas. More...

In the claim, Visto alleges that various Good Technology products, including GoodLink, their push email service, infringe on the patents that Visto has held for the past nine years. The suit seeks a permanent injunction against GoodLink and Good's other infringing technology, which can power several mobile devices including the Palm Treo, HP's iPAQ hw6500, and the Motorola MPx220, among others. The suit also seeks monetary damages.

Visto is a global platform provider for mobile operators to provide wireless push email to mobile devices. Daniel Mendez, Visto's Co-Founder and Senior Vice President, created the company in 1996 to enable users to access sensitive data, including email, even behind secure corporate firewalls.

"There are justifiable marketplace jitters about whether BlackBerry service will be shut down by a federal court next month," noted Bogosian. "With Visto, all users, including BlackBerry users, have a safe harbor alternative to RIM that offers protection from intellectual property risks. Good Technology, like other late entrants to this market, has no patents directed to wireless e-mail and very clearly infringes on our long-held intellectual property."
