We have included herein the patents of cyber risk quantification companies by way of illustration of the types of patents held by other CRQ entities. The list is not definitive – for example Corax Cyber went into liquidation, but the IP was acquired by a creditor. The creditor, in turn, may at a future date, sell the IP to a non-practising entity (AKA patent troll) and as such gives rise to future litigation risks to other CRQ entities AND their clients.
We state explicitly herein that the list is by no way exhaustive or current. Where there are companies operating within the sector that are not listed, such as Risklens and Cybercube as having any protective IP or innovation listed at the US Patent Office or any other IP Registry, it is for the viewer on this website to determine for their own purposes whether such entities have intellectual property and whether the absence of such IP poses a risk to any potential, or actual user of their products.
The strength of Quantar’s patents lies in their early priority dates, creating the ability to strike down later patent claims. Additionally, we maintain our priority dates through the continual filing of continuation applications, removing the ability of competitors to engineer their way around our protected Cyber Risk Quantification systems, METHODS, and software code.
As an example of our ongoing development, our latest patent entitled:
“SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR EXTRACTING AND COMBINING ELECTRONIC RISK INFORMATION FOR BUSINESS CONTINUITY MANAGEMENT WITH ACTIONABLE FEEDBACK METHODOLOGIES”
Was issued as US patent 11425159 on the 23rd August 2022.
Additionally, we are providing two xls sheets, with data relating to CRQ companies from 2019, when Quantar was in discussion with several non-practicing entities who were seeking to partner with Quantar in order to litigate against certain CRQ companies they felt were infringing Quantar’s patents and offered them a monetisation opportunity.
The data within the sheets is provided merely as illustrative information on which companies within the sector, NPE’s viewed as actually or potentially infringing patent portfolios of CRQ entities such as Quantar. URL’s within the sheets linking to Preliminary Infringement Contentions – Levels 1 & 2 Evidence of Use are no longer valid, although Quantar continues to hold the data for potential litigation purposes, or for sale of the company’s patent portfolio to an NPE.
Page 14 comprises a summary of the above and has not been included. This data is provided on the basis of publicly available information via the USPTO website.
The following are a sample of patents and applications from companies operating within the sector of cyber risk assessment and financial quantification. The list is not necessarily current and is provided as a quick overview of the volume of patents from a small number of companies versus the total number of operators within the segment.
