 VirnetX Holding Corporation, (AMEX: VHC), a leader in secure real-time communications and collaborations technology, today announced that it has entered into a strategic alliance with ipCapital Group, Inc., one of the nation’s leading intellectual property (IP) strategy consulting and licensing firms. By combining VirnetX’s business solutions for secure real-time communications with ipCapital Group’s IP management expertise, the alliance is expected to accelerate the licensing of VirnetX’s extensive patent portfolio.
“We believe this strategic alliance will compliment VirnetX’s licensing business and will result in a strong revenue stream which we plan to apply to our ongoing R&D efforts,” said Kendall Larsen, president and CEO of VirnetX. “With more than 10 years of experience and an exemplary track record in the IP brokerage industry, we are confident that we have found an excellent partner in ipCapital Group that will provide a sustainable competitive advantage for VirnetX.” Under the agreement, ipCapital Group will assist VirnetX in strategic planning, development, assessment and implementation of VirnetX’s IP licensing program. ipCapital Group will identify licensing partners that can truly benefit from VirnetX’s unique virtual private network and encryption technology. It will seek to establish mutually beneficial agreements to transfer the VirnetX technology. “In a business environment that thrives on open innovation, we see many companies across many industries greatly benefiting from taking advantage of the business opportunity created by VirnetX’s patented technology,” said John Cronin, managing director and chairman of ipCapital Group. “We believe VirnetX’s current and future technology advancements and IP assets will be applicable across multiple market segments. Its technologies will significantly benefit companies that need to automatically secure private data and shared content across networks.” VirnetX’s agreement with ipCapital Group is focused on creating valuable business opportunities with early licensees. The licensing business will then become an internal VirnetX operation. Additional technology advancements and patents stemming from VirnetX’s ongoing R&D efforts are expected to be added to the portfolio, further broadening and deepening VirnetX’s licensing offerings.
