Entefy Patent Advances the State-of-the-Art in Digital Communication

Entefy’s latest patent unlocks new possibilities in managing digital conversations across apps and services 

PALO ALTO, May 10, 2017 – Entefy Inc. announced today that the company was recently issued a new patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Patent No. 9,639,600 describes a “System and method of personalized message threading for a multi-format, multi-protocol communication system.”

Entefy’s new patent advances the state-of-the-art in digital communication by allowing intelligent threading of conversations across multiple protocols and channels of communication. This innovation helps the Entefy platform make smarter connections about the meaning and context of messages, regardless of where those messages came from or how they were first transmitted.

“With so many apps and services, it can be difficult to keep track of your conversations. This Entefy innovation helps make sense of the conversations we have with other people even when they’re spread out over time and across different apps or services,” said Entefy CEO Alston Ghafourifar. 

Today’s announcement is the latest patent announcement from Entefy in 2017. In March, the company announced the issuance of a new patent covering encrypted search. That patent strengthened the data security and search capabilities of Entefy’s core technology, deepening the company’s capabilities in protecting user privacy and data. In January, Entefy announced the filing of a group of 13 new patents in artificial intelligence (AI), security, and cyber privacy.
