Abusix Joins Open Invention Network as Licensee


MONTREAL, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Abusix, a specialist provider of Threat Intelligence and Subscriber Security solutions for Telcos and Internet Service Providers (ISPs), has joined the largest patent non-aggression community in history, created by and for Linux and Open Source Software supporters. Over 2,750 member organizations recognize the importance of leveraging the Open Invention Network (OIN) to help further develop innovation in Open Source Software, including Cyber Security.

"Abusix makes use of multiple open source tools within its products. These foundational software elements are well trusted by our Service Provider clients, who prefer infrastructure components that are also open source," said Tobias Knecht CEO & Founder of Abusix. "By becoming an OIN licensee, we encourage the development of solutions that can be used to block bad actors from abusing subscribers or servers."

OIN's community practices patent non-aggression in core open source technologies by cross-licensing Linux System patents to one another on a royalty-free basis. Patents owned by Open Invention Network are similarly licensed royalty-free to any organization that agrees not to assert its patents against the Linux System. The OIN license can be signed online at

"We understand hundreds of Service Providers and cyber security developers rely on Abusix in their ongoing fight against cybercriminals," said Keith Bergelt, CEO of OIN. "Given this, we are pleased to have Abusix join our community as a licensee. By signing our license, Abusix affirms it values the openness of Linux as a strong security application platform."
