  • Patent number: 11985168
    Abstract: The technology disclosed describes a system. The system comprises an edge network of a plurality of points of presence of a network security system. Points of presence in the plurality of points of presence are configured to intermediate traffic between clients and cloud applications and to use metadata to apply policies on the intermediated traffic. There are redundancies in metadata synchronization between the points of presence due to metadata migration to a second point of presence from a first point of presence handing off intermediation to the second point of presence within an application session. Each of the points of presence is configured with inline metadata generation logic. The inline metadata generation logic is configured to issue synthetic requests to provide the metadata to the second point of presence without requiring the metadata migration to the second point of presence.

  • Patent number: 11965971
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides systems and methods for timestamping events on edge devices. A trusted source measures the latency to the edge device and the edge device's clock offset, and stores the information at the trusted source for later use. The trusted source sends the latency and the device's clock offset to the edge device for later use. The trusted source or the edge device adjusts a timestamp generated at the edge device using an estimated clock offset. The estimated clock offset is determined by extrapolation or interpolation from measured clock offsets.

  • Patent number: 11960486
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes systems and methods for aggregation and management of cloud storage among a plurality of providers via file fragmenting to provide increased reliability and security. In one implementation, fragments or blocks may be distributed among a plurality of cloud storage providers, such that no provider retains a complete copy of a file. Accordingly, even if an individual service is compromised, a malicious actor cannot access the data. In another implementation, fragments may be duplicated and distributed to multiple providers, such that loss of communications to any one provider does not result in inability to access the data. This implementation may be combined with error correction techniques to allow recovery, even with loss of multiple providers. File synchronization may also be faster in these implementations by dividing reading and writing operations among multiple providers.

  • Patent number: 11777863
    Abstract: A system for optimizing routes for time-critical messages in a mesh network is provided. For example, a child node in a mesh network can communicate with the root node through any of its parent nodes. The child node is configured to transmit regular data to the root node through a primary route associated with its primary parent. When there is a time-critical message to be transmitted to the root node, the child node estimates a round trip time (RTT) for each route between the child node and the root node. The child node selects, among its parent nodes, a parent node whose associated route has the lowest RTT and transmits the time-critical message to the root node through the selected parent node. After the transmission of the time-critical message, the child node switches back to the primary route to transmit additional regular data to the root node.

  • Patent number: 11748244
    Abstract: Training a predict model with network traffic and data change messages generated by an existing web application running in a production environment. The predict model being is trained to predict data changes resulted from API calls embodied in network traffic. A stream of network traffic of the existing web application is replayed with an upgraded version of the existing web application to generate real data changes. The stream of network traffic is applied to the predict model to generate predicted data change messages. The predicted data change messages are comparing with real data change messages representing the real data changes. One or more existing APIs is identified as being possibly functionally degraded based on any inconsistency of the predicted data change messages with the real data change messages.
