Secure Enterprise Mobility Pioneer Good Technology Files Two Lawsuits in Next Front of Smartphone Wars

SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Good Technology (News - Alert)™, a pioneer in secure enterprise mobility, announced that it has filed two separate patent infringement lawsuits in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against MobileIron Inc. and AirWatch (News - Alert) LLC. The lawsuit against MobileIron also includes Lanham Act and related claims alleging MobileIron engaged in a marketing campaign based on falsehoods and misleading claims about Good and its product offerings. At the heart of these lawsuits is Good's technology, which is vital to the utility, function, and safety of mobile data and devices.

King Lee, CEO of Good Technology said, "Smartphones and tablets have become the most important and ubiquitous piece of technology we use in our daily lives. Good has pioneered the technology and products critical to the backbone and safety of these mobile devices, and these lawsuits are about two blatant infringers of our technology - MobileIron and AirWatch. We have spent hundreds of millions of dollars researching, developing, and marketing our solutions. Thousands of organizations worldwide, including half of the FORTUNE 100, trust us to safely, efficiently and reliably scale their mobile enterprises, and we intend to vigorously defend our intellectual property rights around the world."


Founded in 1996, Good's innovations in the area of mobile security and management have resulted in broad intellectual property protection for its innovations, including over 75 patents, a good number of which are early, highly-cited, foundational patents. The patents in the lawsuit cover core technology first developed in the late 1990s that enable users to securely access email and other business data while mobile.

The patents Good has asserted in these lawsuits include:

  • United States Patent No. 6,151,606 issued for an invention entitled "System and Method for Using a Workspace Data Manager to Access, Manipulate and Synchronize Network Data."
  • United States Patent No. 8,012,219 issued for an invention entitled "System and Method for Preventing Access to Data on a Compromised Remote Device."
  • United States Patent No. 7,970,386 issued for an invention entitled "System and Method for Monitoring and Maintaining a Wireless Device."
