Infotecs Granted US Patent for their "Method for Managing Connections in Firewalls"

New York, NYC. – January 27, 2015 

News Summary 

Infotecs, a leading international provider of next generation security solutions, today announced the issuance of a new U.S. patent for the invention of their “Method for Managing Connections in Firewalls.” The technology has been developed by Infotecs and registered in the United States Patent and Trademark Office under the number US 8,910,267 B2. 

Most firewalls can track connections by enabling the context processing of traffic and thus increasing the level of network protection. Storing information about established connections uses significant firewall resources; this is why it is necessary to limit the number of simultaneous connections and remove those that are unused. This task inevitably arises as the load on a firewall increases. 

The method for managing connections patented by Infotecs ensures the following: 

  • stable and reliable processing of established connections regardless of the firewall load level; 
  • maximum firewall throughput when the load on a firewall increases; 
  • stronger resistance against the DoS/DDoS attacks. 

Unlike well-known technologies that are available today, the method invented by Infotecs changes the connection timeouts dynamically depending on the firewall’s resource utilization. The established connections have the highest priority which results in greater reliability of a network device. 

This method is implemented in all hardware and software appliances developed by Infotecs.
