Entefy awarded three new patents by US Patent and Trademark Office

USPTO awards Entefy new patents covering inventions in digital security and privacy

PALO ALTO, Calif. October 29, 2018. Entefy Inc. has recently been issued a series of patents by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The company’s IP portfolio includes 48 combined pending and issued patents and a number of trade secrets related to its technology domains. Entefy’s latest three issued patents cover innovations in areas of cybersecurity and data privacy.

Patent No. 10,037,413 describes “System and method of applying multiple adaptive privacy control layers to encoded media file types.” A solution using this technology gives users and content creators alike advanced control over the viewing, distribution, and other use of their videos in a variety of formats. This unprecedented level of protection can extend from entire files down to select scenes, objects, or even a single pixel within a video.

Patent No. 10,055,384, “Advanced zero-knowledge document processing and synchronization,” explains the method by which live, multi-person document collaboration products can provide the same level of convenience for the user without sacrificing security or privacy.

One major consideration when dealing with the cloud or distributed computing is the ongoing trade-off between ease of maintenance and the need for security, including proper authentication, role management, and permission. Patent No. 10,110,585 describes the first “Multi-party authentication in a zero-trust distributed system” that involves automated collaboration between people, hardware, and software in determining the correct authorization for data access, policy changes, system updates, and more in a distributed infrastructure.

“I’m really proud of the team’s technical prowess and commitment to excellence. Over the years, we’ve had to think about new approaches to solving some of the most challenging engineering problems in areas of communication, security, and machine intelligence,” said Entefy’s CEO, Alston Ghafourifar. “I’m delighted to see these newly issued patents being added to our growing IP portfolio as we continue to push the envelope and move the dial on what’s technically possible.”

Today’s news is the latest in a series of patent issuance announcements, including an Entefy patent that enhances intelligent message delivery and a patent covering encrypted group messaging simultaneously across multiple protocols.
