Entefy’s newly issued patent heralds advances in people-centric messaging

Entefy patent takes communication across multiple formats and protocols to an entirely new level

PALO ALTO, Calif. February 7, 2018 — Entefy Inc. has been issued a new patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Patent No. 9,819,621 describes an “Apparatus and method for optimized multi-format communication delivery protocol prediction.” 

“The fragmentation in protocols and services over the years has made digital communication much harder than it needs to be for most people. This invention allows a people-centric approach to digital communication where users no longer need to worry about different apps, protocols, or formats just to send a message,” said Alston Ghafourifar, Entefy’s CEO.

Today’s news follows the recent announcement of Entefy filing 15 new patents in the areas of search, AI, blockchain, communication, data privacy, and IoT, bringing the company’s portfolio of filed and issued patents to 46.

In 2017, Entefy announced that it had completed its Series A financing round at a $150 million valuation, the filing of an additional 13 patents in AI, cybersecurity, and data privacy, the issuance of a patent for encrypted search, and the issuance of another patent covering context awareness in messages.
