  • Patent number: 11228607
    Abstract: A network protection system (NPS) is augmented to provide additional functionality—preferably within the SSL/TLS connection at the OSI presentation layer—to enable efficient management and handling of security-violating client connections. When the NPS determines to suspend a suspect application client connection, the NPS modifies the request (the TLS encrypted packet) at a random offset to include a random byte value. When the modified request is then received at the server, a TLS decryption error occurs. In response, the server drops the request gracefully and, in particular, a termination response is returned from the server to the NPS, which then passes the termination response back to the requesting client.

  • Patent number: 11184398
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for accessing a hosted service on client devices is described. The client devices include client software that uses a remotely delivered policy to redirect network requests for hosted services to a server to enforce visibility, policy and data security for network delivered services. The method can be used in conjunction with existing VPN and proxy solutions, but provides distinct additional functionality, particularly suited to corporate needs. Policies allow entities to centralize enforcement of service-specific restrictions across networks and communication channels, e.g. only certain users can download client records from a service—irrespective of the network used to access the service.

  • Patent number: 11150963
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide for accelerating and offloading network processing to a remote smart network interface card (NIC). A first network element, including a first smart NIC, can transmit capability information of the first smart NIC for receipt by a neighboring second network element. The second network element can determine that a network processing task of a virtualized network function (e.g., virtual network function (VNF), cloud-native network function (CNF), etc.) instantiated on the second network element can be offloaded to the first smart NIC. The second network element can receive processing information from the virtualized network function for performing the network processing task. Based on the processing information, the second network element can transmit control information that causes the first smart NIC to perform the network processing task on at least a portion of network data received by the first network element for transmission to the second network element.
