Defensive Patent Program for Aruba Technology Partners

The threat of patent lawsuits from competitors can stifle entrepreneurship and innovation, especially for early stage and small-to-medium sized companies without a large, defensive patent portfolio. Aruba’s parent corporation, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, has a long and storied history as a technology innovator, and has amassed a vast patent portfolio.

Our Defensive Patent Program can help Aruba Technology Partners deter IP aggression and ward off patent battles. Technology partners in good standing may negotiate to purchase all right, title, and interest in select patents for legal defense purposes. A program advisory logo further warns away potential aggressors.
