Company granted patent on first office action from the USPTO, validating Hopr’s continued commitment to innovation and technological advancements in cybersecurity
Hopr.co, a leader in securing workloads and data-in-transit everywhere in the cloud, announced today that it has been granted US Patent 11,716,312, “Platform for Optimizing Secure Communications,” by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO.) The patent extends Hopr’s initial “Password Hopping System” technology to cloud machines with a new and more sophisticated feature that addresses the increased cyber risk of legacy transport security by catering to the speed and scale of cloud operations.
Automated Moving Target Defense (AMTD) is not necessarily a new category of cyber defense, and TLS has been viewed as a successful cybersecurity solution for many years. Hopr has introduced a generational improvement in data security with its cloud native Synchronous Ephemeral Encryption (SEE™) protocol, which allows workloads to build end-to-end encrypted communication channels without a key exchange, preventing Man-in-the-Middle attacks and untrusted access to endpoints.
The second patent also covers improvements that:
- Apply Hopr’s revolutionary Code Hidden In Plain Sight (CHIPS™) technology to cloud workloads and utilize “secrets,” as opposed to static and semi-static passwords
- Ensure secrets generated by CHIPS™ are used for encryption and not passed to other endpoints for authentication
- Include a verifiable Machine Alias ID (MAID) for workloads that rotates in real time
- Enable the Kerberos design pattern to verify trust in public-facing workloads from separate organizations before their workloads communicate with one another
“We are thrilled to unveil our improved ‘Password Hopping System’ technology, as well as announce receipt of Hopr’s second patent,” said Tom McNamara, Founder and CEO, Hopr.co. “This published patent further exemplifies our continued commitment to innovation and technological advancement in cloud native cybersecurity as we continue positioning ourselves as a leader in endpoint and data security.”
Hopr’s second patent was allowed on the USPTO’s first “office action,” or substantive examination – an achievement that has only been earned by 1% of allowed patents. This effort demonstrates not only the need for Hopr’s technology within the marketplace, but its ingenuity compared to other technologies and innovations.
“I love how much easier Hopr is than making mTLS work across environments, and I’m confident that the full communication route is secure, too,” said Drew Malone, Solution Engineer and Devops/Infrastructure veteran. “This is a great security tool that any DevOps practitioner will love.”
This news follows shortly after Hopr announced the availability of its API Threat Protection and Access Control solution in AWS Marketplace, allowing enterprise customers to quickly procure and deploy Hopr’s novel AMTD solution in their own environments. In addition, the company also announced it is joining the AWS Activate Portfolio Program.
