We routinely identify and purchase high tech patents on the open market. Through
our extensive network of brokers and sellers, we help possible buyers understand
what's available according to their interests.
We are your trusted ally. We are Allied Security Trust.
Increasingly, investors are purchasing patents for the purpose of enforcing them
against operating companies to achieve financial gain. Armed with millions or even
billions of dollars, these adversarial patent holders seek to disrupt the business
operations of many of the world’s most innovative technology leaders. Allied Security
Trust is a trusted advisor to its members, assisting them in purchasing efforts
to minimize such disruptions to their business.
Each year, AST circulates to its members more than 10,000 issued patents being sold
on the market. Alone, this volume is undigestible even for the largest companies.
AST classifies every patent by potential product and technology coverage, and advises
its members of patents in which we believe they may have interest. This information
is immediately available to our members via an online application called fAST-IP
which facilitates rapid searches and identification of purchasing interests.
AST is governed by its member companies. We believe that companies themselves are
best qualified to make judgments about patents of interest to them. No third party
can ever have full knowledge about the strategies, licenses, indemnities, products
or services at the depth possible by companies themselves. AST’s unique model allows
our members to capitalize on their own expertise while minimizing the effort required
to do so, thereby our members can trust in themselves in addition to their trusted
advisor, Allied Security Trust.
