Eventide Inks Deal With Verint
Verint Systems has signed a patent agreement that makes Eventide Inc., a provider of recording technologies, a licensee and participant in Verint's Open Innovation Network.
The Open Innovation Network provides access to Verint's intellectual property portfolio in the enterprise intelligence and security intelligence solutions markets.

"This agreement is further recognition of the strategic value that Verint innovation can offer organizations to help enhance their offerings, increase market share, and deliver ROI to customers and stakeholders, benefiting the industry as a whole," said Peter Fante, chief legal and compliance officer for Verint, in a statement.
