While Rocket was founded in 1990, the team’s first patent came only nine years ago, in 2006. If you look carefully, you’ll see that the patent was awarded for a “method and system for determining network topology,” and was originally submitted by Joe Devlin, Managing Director of R&D.

Our first patent

According to Joe, he and Rocket filed the patent application in 2001, which was a big year for Rocket as the company was starting to acquire new technologies and expand into markets beyond the mainframe. The team considered this first patent application to be a major milestone as the Rocket business continued to mature, and the core idea behind the patent is still a fundamental part of our NetCure network management product.
