DeviceAtlas granted a new patent in the EU

In July 2017 the European Patent Office granted a patent to Afilias Technologies that was originally filed in 2008. This is quite a milestone for us—the application has survived objections from anonymous third parties and a much tougher patent regime than has applied in recent years. The patent in question, EP2245836 A2, is core to the operation of DeviceAtlas and is the reason why our solution is the fastest one out there, while preserving a very small memory footprint and data file. DeviceAtlas delivers speed, accuracy and efficiency—we don’t force you to choose. The same core algorithm is also protected by a US patent US9185182 B2, granted in 2015.
