Zscaler Inc. (ZS) said Tuesday all patent lawsuits filed by Symantec against Zscaler have been dismissed with prejudice.

Zscaler said the dismissal resulted from the execution of a settlement agreement between Zscaler and Broadcom Inc (AVGO) following Broadcom's acquisition of the patents underlying the Symantec lawsuits as a part of its purchase of the Symantec enterprise security business.

Zscaler will make a payment of $15 million to Broadcom, and Broadcom will provide Zscaler with a patent license, release and covenant not to sue. The other terms of the settlement are confidential.

Zscaler shares were up 2% to $60.50 in premarket trading.
