Gryphon Online Safety, a San Diego tech startup founded by the people that brought you the MiFi mobile hotspot, announced today that they have been granted allowance on one of the key patents covering the technology behind their machine learning-based content filtering.
In the underserved consumer and SMB network protection space, Gryphon is a simple-yet-powerful WiFi mesh router that uses machine learning to make it easy for parents to manage and protect their childrens online activities. With a reoccurring network protection as a service business model, the platform works in the background, providing 24/7 protection with malware, ransomware and intrusion prevention for all the connected devices on the network. Additionally, the intuitive Gryphon Connect mobile app allows for real-time requests and approvals, ability to view browsing history, alerts of suspicious network activities, and easy network management.
Gryphon was started as a Kickstarter project about 18 months ago. Then successfully completed an oversubscribed equity crowd funding round earlier this year on SeedInvest, where they raised over $1.4 million along with other private investors and angel groups. The product is now shipping in volume and is one of the best rated secure routers on Amazon.
We have a number of patents in the pipeline and are pleased that we have received allowance for one of our key patents, said Mr. Arup Bhattacharya, CTO of Gryphon. With the explosive growth of connected devices in our homes and small businesses, we believe making enterprise level network protection simple and scalable will be essential for expanding the market. This grant is a significant win for Gryphon and a validation of the ground breaking work that our technical team is doing in this area.
