StrikeForce Seeks Declaration of Non-Infringement and Invalidity of Authentify's Authentication Patent

EDISON, NJ--(Marketwired - May 23, 2013) - StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: SFOR) announced today that it has filed a Complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey seeking a declaratory judgment that (1) it does not infringe a patent for customer authentication technology owned by Authentify Patent Co., LLC ("Authentify"), and (2) the Authentify patent is invalid under the Patent Act. On April 26, Authentify filed a patent infringement action against StrikeForce in federal district court in Seattle, Washington, claiming that StrikeForce has infringed Authentify's patent, U.S. Patent No. 6,934,858.

"Today's filing is part of our continuing effort to protect our rights and position in this increasingly important market," stated Mark L. Kay, CEO of StrikeForce. "We will respond to the case in Washington State if and when we are served, and pursuant to the court's rules and procedures."

StrikeForce has retained Blank Rome LLP, a national law firm, to represent it in patent litigation. "The engagement of a law firm of such quality and reputation to vindicate our rights to market and sell our out-of-band technology products further strengthens our ability to protect our Intellectual Property (IP) and increase our revenues, which we worked diligently for many years to develop," commented Mark L. Kay, CEO of StrikeForce.
