Parabit Systems, Inc. Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit
BELLMORE, N.Y., Feb. 26, 2019 -- Parabit Systems, Inc. today announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against named Defendants, Synergistics, Inc., Millenium Group, Inc., Island Master Locksmith Inc., IML Security, Gregory I. Goldman, Cathy T. Goldman, Steven R. London and Marc Seidenberg. In the Complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Civil Action Number 19-Civ-0888, Parabit alleges that the Defendants in the lawsuit have infringed and continue to infringe one of Parabit's patents, specifically U.S. Patent No. 8,523,072, entitled "Card Reader Protection System." This valuable patent protects Parabit's pioneering development in, and relates to, card reader protection systems, in particular, devices, systems and methods for detecting card reader skimming devices. The unauthorized use, manufacture or sale of Defendants' allegedly infringing products violates Parabit's patent rights in this technology. Parabit's lawsuit therefore seeks both a permanent injunction and damages in an amount to be determined at trial.

The New MMR
The Latest in Access Control Systems:
MMR - CONTACTLESS EMV/NFC CARD/DEVICE & MAG STRIPE CARD READER w/ SKIMGARD®
Parabit Systems will reveal its latest and unique Access Control Systems product at the ASIS International 2016 conference in Orlando FL. This summer. The Multi Media Reader (MMR) is designed to interact with Near Field Communication (NFC) Devices. The MMR will work with contactless EMV cards, mobile devices (smartphones and wearable tech), as well as magnetic stripe cards. Whether the device OS is Apple or Android, Parabit’s MMR will seamlessly work with it. Smartphones and Wearable Tech need to have NFC chip set, have NFC communication ENABLED, and have the phone powered on and unlocked. There is NO SPECIFIC APP REQUIRED to use the MMR, as it interfaces at the hardware level. The MMR does not interface/interact at the
application level on smartphones/wearable tech – it only interfaces/interacts at the pre-activation levels. The MMR does not initiate any financial transaction. The MMR will also work with debit/credit card only magnetic stripe cards, or bank ISO encoded magnetic stripe ATM cards w/ NYCE BIN exception lookup, or straight card number look up/exact match (card number table lookup).
The MMR contains Parabit’s patented SkimGard® technology to detect most skimming attempts of the MMR
card reader as well as RFID reader skimming detection.
