Patent Infringement Suit Raised By Quest Software

Quest Software : 30 August, 2010  (Company News)
Quest Software is taking Centrify and Likewise Software to court over alleged infringement of Quest Authentication Services
Quest Software has filed suit against Centrify Corp. and Likewise Software. In its Complaint filed in the US District Court in Salt Lake City, Utah, Quest Software alleges that Centrify DirectControl and Likewise Enterprise infringe US Patent No. 7,617,501. The '501 Patent teaches the extension of Windows Group Policy in heterogeneous computing environments to Unix, Linux, Mac, and other non-Windows computer systems. Jackson Shaw, Quest's Senior Director of Product Management for Quest's Identity Management Solutions, offered these comments on the lawsuit: "Vintela changed the industry when it introduced its award-winning Vintela Group Policy product in 2004. Since acquiring Vintela in 2005, Quest has invested heavily in Vintela's products to ensure they remain the market-leading tools for extending Windows Group Policy to heterogeneous computing environments. Centrify and Likewise copied and benefited directly from the patented features that helped make Quest's product for Group Policy the industry standard." Quest's Complaint seeks damages and injunctive relief prohibiting Centrify and Likewise Software from continuing to infringe Quest's patent.
