HID Statement on Verdict Regarding IP Enforcement Action Filed Against Vector Flow, Inc.

This week, HID received a highly favorable verdict in an intellectual property (IP) enforcement action filed against the company Vector Flow, Inc.

In this verdict, a jury unanimously agreed that Vector Flow willfully and maliciously misappropriated HID trade secrets and willfully infringed our Physical Identity Access Management (PIAM) patent. We are grateful to the jury for this verdict.

At HID, we are committed to protecting our IP. We do not pursue legal action simply for the sake of being litigious. Instead, we strategically pursue IP cases if the infringement negatively impacts our customers, our employees, and our industry. This strategy is exemplified by the decision in the Vector Flow case.
