  • Patent number: 11646985
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems, non-transitory computer-readable media, and methods for dynamically controlling ephemeral messaging threads and ephemeral message duration settings across computing devices while improving security by maintaining end-to-end encryption. In particular, in one or more embodiments, the disclosed systems can transmit encrypted ephemeral messages, including ephemeral message duration settings and ephemeral setting timestamps. The disclosed systems can decrypt received messages on receiving client devices and dynamically apply ephemeral message duration settings to different message threads. For example, the disclosed systems can modify existing duration settings at a receiving client device to match a received ephemeral message duration setting based on determining that the received ephemeral setting timestamp predates an existing setting timestamp.

  • Patent number: 11570144
    Abstract: Methods and systems provide for receiving an assessment of a full uniform resource locator (URL) in a browser session in advance of the browser accessing the URL, maintaining client privacy in the process using a proxy between the client device and an assessment component on a server. The proxy receives the client identity and a URL. After substituting an arbitrary query identifier for the client identity in the assessment request, the proxy forwards the anonymized assessment request to the assessment component. In return the proxy receives classification data regarding the URL associated with the arbitrary query identifier, which the proxy associates with the client identity and subsequently forwards the classification data to the client.

  • Patent number: 11528327
    Abstract: Remote applications within remote sessions and local applications do not behave similarly to provide users with a seamless experience. For example, a user may exploit multiple monitors with a local application but cannot with a remote application. Accordingly, embodiments of the invention provide users with the ability to exploit multiple monitors within a single remote session in a manner similar to the one in which they utilize multiple monitors on their desktop computer, laptop etc. Other embodiments extend this so that a user can exploit multiple client devices within a single remote session such that whilst the remote session is established upon a user's portable electronic device, for example, they can also exploit the keyboard, mouse, and monitor of their fixed electronic device for all or part of the session or exploit peripherals and other electronic devices associated with these client devices.

  • Patent number: 11516282
    Abstract: The invention provides, in one aspect, an improved system for data access comprising a file server that is coupled to a client device or application executing thereon via one or more networks. The server comprises static storage that is organized in one or more directories, each containing, zero, one or more files. The server also comprises a file system operable, in cooperation with a file system on the client device, to provide authorized applications executing on the client device access to those directories and/or files. Fast file server (FFS) software or other functionality executing on or in connection with the server responds to requests received from the client by transferring requested data to the client device over multiple network pathways. That data can comprise, for example, directory trees, files (or portions thereof), and so forth.
