FatPipe Networks Is Granted Its 7th Patent Providing Greater Internet/WAN Security and Reliability Tools for Business Continuity

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Salt Lake City, UT -- FatPipe Networks, the inventor and multiple patents holder of WAN optimization, redundancy and security products, announced today that it has successfully secured its seventh patent. The U.S. Patent No. 7,444,506 protects the methods, devices, and systems for efficient secure parallel data transmission divided over hybrid Wide Area Networks (WANs), with the ability to segment portions between encrypted traffic sent over a public network and unencrypted traffic sent over a private network.

The significance of the technology is to help companies securely divide data between disparate networks. The technology automatically encrypts traffic sent over public networks, and removes the encryption component for data transfers over private lines to avoid overhead and slower bandwidth speeds.

"FatPipe is at the forefront of creating Internet/WAN technologies that support businesses for business continuity and contingency planning. Foreseeing trends of medium and enterprise-sized businesses utilizing hybrid networks for mission critical wide area network communications, FatPipe is proud to acquire another patent that provides effective and efficient solutions," said Ragula Bhaskar, Ph.D., President and CEO of FatPipe Networks.

This patent is most represented in FatPipe's IPVPN technology, which provides the highest level of security, fault tolerance and speed for private, managed or Customer Premise VPNs. IPVPN, one of a family of router-clustering products from FatPipe, achieves reliability, redundancy and speed by aggregating data lines from private and public connections from different ISPs. IPVPN intelligently senses when services are not available, and automatically reroutes traffic over available lines. Feature add-ons include QoS, Compression, Site Load Balancing, and Site Failover to address the Business Continuity needs of customers.

FatPipe's intellectual property includes six other U.S. Patents: No. 6,493,341; No. 6,253,247; No. 6,295,276; No. 6,775,235, No. 7,269,143, and U.S. Patent No. 7,406,048. FatPipe has several other patents, copyrights, trademarks, proprietary technologies and industry secrets pending. FatPipe Networks, MPSec, and MultiPath VPN, are trademarks of FatPipe Networks in the U.S. and other countries. All other trademarks and registered trademarks are property of their respective owners.

Any other company that sells products that use similar methods may be infringing this patent or other patents owned by FatPipe Networks. FatPipe Networks will actively enforce the protection of its patents from companies that incorporate any of the patent claims' elements to the full extent of the law. Companies concerned about possible patent infringements can call Sanchaita Datta at FatPipe Networks.
