Orion, electronically signing documents in Industry for more than 20 years, filed its first patent in 1996 based upon novel security methods we innovated at that time. Now commonplace, Orion was the first to recognize the strength in public key encryption when joined with biometrics (such as an individual’s signature) and transactional data. Our initial patent, #6,745,936 (and follow on patent #7,246,097), Method and Apparatus for Generating Secure Endorsed Transactions, are the cornerstone for highly secure, legally enforceable electronic contracts.
Orion will defend its intellectual property vigorously in cases of patent infringement to the fullest extent of the law. Orion is represented by the venerable Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, LLP of Washington DC. For a comprehensive description of our patents, please contact us using our Contact Us Page.
