Santa Clara, CA, February 6, 2014 Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the leader in enterprise security, announced that on February 6, 2014, Honorable Judge Sue L. Robinson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware (the “Court”) rejected Juniper’s motion for summary judgment of patent infringement, and granted in part several Palo Alto Networks’ motions for summary judgment of non-infringement based on the doctrine of equivalents.  Palo Alto Networks also announced that it received favorable decisions on claim construction with regard to the patents-in-suit.

“We believe the ruling is consistent with our position that we do not infringe these patents,” said Mark McLaughlin, chief executive officer of Palo Alto Networks. 

“From the outset, we said we would vigorously defend the Company against Juniper’s lawsuit.  Our business has always been focused on delivering unique offerings for our customers.  We remain committed to defending our products against unwarranted claims of patent infringement.  We look forward to proving at trial that we do not infringe the Juniper patents.”

The lawsuit is pending in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware and was filed by Juniper Networks in December, 2011. The Court’s decision follows a hearing held in November 2013.  A trial date in this matter is scheduled for February 24, 2014.
