  • Patent number: 11770435
    Abstract: A system designed for increasing network communication speed for users, while lowering network congestion for content owners and ISPs. The system employs network elements including an acceleration server, clients, agents, and peers, where communication requests generated by applications are intercepted by the client on the same machine. The IP address of the server in the communication request is transmitted to the acceleration server, which provides a list of agents to use for this IP address. The communication request is sent to the agents. One or more of the agents respond with a list of peers that have previously seen some or all of the content which is the response to this request (after checking whether this data is still valid).

  • Patent number: 11741358
    Abstract: Certain aspects of the present disclosure provide techniques for generating a recommendation of third-party applications to a user by a recommendation engine. The recommendation engine includes two deep-learning models that use various data sources (e.g., user data and application data) to generate the recommendation. One deep-learning model generates a relevance score for each available third-party application. The relevance score is used to determine a relevant application(s). The other deep-learning model generates a connection score for each relevant application. The recommendation engine uses the relevance score and the connections to generate an engagement score for each relevant application to determine whether the user would use the third-party application if recommended to the user. Those relevant applications with an engagement score that meet pre-determined criteria are determined and displayed to the user in the application as a recommendation.

  • Patent number: 11729292
    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided for promulgating modifications to resources to client devices. A resource is modified and, in response, a new reference to the modified resource is generated along with a mapping that maps a previous reference, prior to the modification, to the new reference of the modified resource. The mapping and interceptor code are injected into an index file of content referencing the resource. The interceptor code intercepts requests referencing the resource and uses the mapping to modify the requests to use the new reference. In response to receiving a request for the content from a client, the index file is transmitted to the client to execute the interceptor code and process references to the resource, in the content, by modifying the references to the resource to direct the retrieval of the resource to the modified resource according to the new reference specified in the mapping data structure.

  • Patent number: 11716266
    Abstract: A network security monitoring and correlation system for providing a three-dimensional visualization of network traffic overlaid with security alerts and other relevant discrete data. The system may comprise an application server communicably linked to a client. The server functions to retrieve network traffic metadata and relevant discrete data associated with individual computer hosts and connections in the monitored network, process the network traffic data by building a graph data structure, and then embedding within the graph data structure one or more layers of additional information about the individual computer hosts and connections derived from the discrete data. The client functions to produce a three-dimensional visualization of the network environment by parsing the graph data structure received from the server and then spawning computer hosts and connections in the 3-D environment.

  • Patent number: 11689490
    Abstract: Systems and methods for regulating electronic messages transmissions. A message delay system is disposed between one or more first entities and a second entity within at least one network. Electronic messages are received from among at least one the first entities and the second entity at one or more message arrival times. A message delay component applies a delay to each received electronic message, based on a predefined delay time common to all of the first entities and a first entity delay offset associated with a first entity that is associated with the received message. The first entity delay offset is based on a geographical origin of the first entity relative to a geographical origin of the second entity. Each delayed message is transmitted to a designated recipient via the network, where the designated recipient is among the second entity and the first entities.
