- by admin
Decca Software, the Israeli company behind some of the most advanced software used by American security firms, is set to sell a patent portfolio in the United States to American software engineering companies.
The company is expected to announce the deal in a press release on Tuesday, according to a source familiar with the matter.
Decca Software filed its patent portfolio with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in 2012, according the sources.
It said it is the first time it has sold a software patent portfolio outside Israel.
The USPTO did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Decca Software’s portfolio includes software products that help security firms to secure their networks, identify threats, track down malware and identify flaws in computer software.
Decca also offers software for companies to run security testing and monitoring.
The company’s portfolio is set up to allow for commercial use by software companies to offer software to their customers and employees, the sources said.
The portfolio is the product of the company’s collaboration with the security research and development companies at the Israeli National Security Agency (ANSA), according to the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The software company’s software is being developed by the Israeli Institute for Advanced Studies, or ISAS, which is based at Haifa.ISAS, like many Israeli software companies, has become increasingly concerned about the spread of malware.
The Israeli security firm Bitnet has announced plans to sell its software to several companies, including the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), US Navy and the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), in an effort to stop the spread.
