cyan AG: Analysis method shortly before grant of patent
European Patent Office confirms patentability of an important analytical method and offers prospect of the patent being granted
Patent to be registered for the most important markets
Munich, July 12, 2019 – The European Patent Office has confirmed the patentability of an important analytical method of cyan with prospects of the patent being granted. cyan plans to register this patent in the most important markets worldwide as part of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) process.
The patent covers a method for detecting harmful actions on websites or in smartphone apps. With the help of a sandbox – an isolated area within a system – user interactions are carried out fully automatically and communication channels are analysed in real time. Web pages and apps are technically screened in order to identify conspicuous behaviour patterns and to ward off potential attacks in an isolated area – the sandbox.
This analysis method imitates human usage, interacts with the content and automatically monitors the specific input and output points in the context of the smartphone. This method is highly scalable by processing hundreds of contents in parallel. It is one of 23 different analysis methods with which cyan checks potentially dangerous content around the clock and thus constantly improves the quality of the cyber security filter used.
Markus Cserna, CTO of cyan: “Research & Development is one of our areas in which we continuously invest. A portion of the money received from the capital increase successfully closed this week will also flow into this area. The confirmation of patentability and the prospect of the patent being granted for one of our most important analysis methods is a great success in this area. Through innovative analytical methods, we want to clearly differentiate ourselves from the competition and defend and expand our worldwide market position”.
