As part of the settlement, Halogen acknowledges that it engaged in false pretexting. Specifically, Halogen manufactured a phony prospective customer,“The Magnus Group,” to inappropriately obtain SuccessFactors’ business information to learn about SuccessFactors’ services and product features, product demonstrations, pricing, and sales processes. In connection with the settlement Halogen agreed to pay an undisclosed payment to SuccessFactors. Halogen also agreed to allow entry of a permanent stipulated injunction, to destroy wrongfully obtained data, and to implement employee training along with new company guidelines to ensure that Halogen does not again engage in similar behavior.

“SuccessFactors has been extremely concerned about safeguarding its confidential information, so we’re pleased to have successfully resolved this matter of nearly seven months,” said Doug Dennerline, SuccessFactors’ president. “At SuccessFactors, we take extreme pride in winning the right way, within ethical and legal boundaries, so in addition to vindication, we were able to demonstrate a valuable lesson.”

The legal dispute originated in early September 2010 when an alleged potential customer,“The Magnus Group,” ended discussions with SuccessFactors after several weeks of contact and purported interest in SuccessFactors’ products, pricing, and services. By posing as a prospective customer and repeatedly expressing interest in purchasing SuccessFactors’ product, an alleged representative of “The Magnus Group” received wrongfully obtained SuccessFactors’ business information that SuccessFactors would never have disclosed to a competitor.

SuccessFactors learned that Halogen was the creator of the phony “Magnus Group” company. SuccessFactors filed a lawsuit on December 2, 2010 against Halogen in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (Case No. CV10-05471) for Intentional Interference with Prospective Economic Relations, Conversion, Fraud, and Unfair Competition. On December 9, 2010, the parties stipulated to an order that Halogen was prohibited from using any of the files or information procured through its use of The Magnus Group. As part of this settlement, Halogen agreed that the provisions of the stipulation would become permanent, as part of a stipulated judgment.

Dennerline continued,“We believe the market is the true winner here. Customers want products that work from vendors they can trust.”
