TEL AVIV, Israel, Nov. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alarum Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq, TASE: ALAR) (“Alarum” or the “Company”), a global provider of internet access and web data collection solutions, has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, NetNut Ltd. (“NetNut”), was granted United States Patent No. 11,818,104 for its groundbreaking innovation, titled ANONYMOUS PROXYING. This patent, officially granted on November 14, 2023, signifies a significant milestone in the Company’s commitment to advancing technology and delivering cutting-edge solutions to its customers.
The newly granted patent describes a revolutionary method, which brings a novel twist to traditional proxy services. Unlike conventional anonymous proxies, where proxy service client requests would be rerouted through an intermediate proxy device, thus potentially slowing down the connection and exposing a device’s local network to security risks, NetNut’s “reflector” method achieves the same end-result without such detour. It cleverly uses the IP address of an intermediate device to initiate the connection, and after this initial step, client requests are sent directly to the target server. This method retains the benefits of using a proxy, while masking the original IP address and avoiding the usual bottleneck of channeling all traffic through a third-party device. The result is a secured, faster, more efficient, and streamlined method of connecting to the internet, with all the advantages of a proxy but none of the traditional drawbacks.
Moshe Kramer, Vice President Research and Development of NetNut, commented: “This recognition only serves to motivate us further as we continue to develop new and exciting technologies to address the evolving needs of our customers. NetNut is committed to fostering innovation, and this patent represents a significant investment in our research and development initiatives. We are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in our industry and to continue delivering exceptional value to our clients.”
“We are proud to receive this patent, which is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication to innovation,” said Shachar Daniel, Chief Executive Officer of Alarum. “This new patent expands our intellectual property portfolio and strengthens our position in the market. It also provides us with a competitive edge, ensuring that we can continue to deliver value and maintain our leadership in the internet-access and web-data collection markets.”
