For a technology company like Virent, our intellectual property is one of the most valuable assets we have. Our inventions and ideas are the culmination of many years of innovation, experimentation and hard work made possible through significant financial investment. The lengths we go to protect our intellectual property ensure that we will be able to deliver valuable, transformative customer solutions around the world for years to come.
Virent has over 200 domestic and foreign issued and pending applications in its portfolio representing more than 33 technology families.
Our patents protect every phase of our technology, including methods, processes, the systems we use, and the activities we undertake to produce products. We are fortunate to have both in-house counsel, external legal experts as well as protection through one of our valued investors, the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.
