Partner Benjamin Mak assists with patent for Nerds on Site Inc.'s "Don't Talk to Strangers" Cybercrime Defeating Technology

Jul 07 2020

Partner Benjamin Mak assisted in the writing for Nerds On Site Inc.'s ("NERDS") patent for "METHOD AND ROUTER TO PERMIT OR BLOCK INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) CONNECTIVITY BASED ON ORIGINATING DOMAIN NAME SERVER (DNS) REQUESTS." 

AdamOne's "Don't Talk to Strangers" is a newly patented technology that prevents a computer or any connected device from having uncontrolled access to the internet – if a destination is unknown it is a "Stranger." Rather than have an IT security approach that is playing a game of "whack a mole," trying to identify threats, this technology flips the approach to establishing an ecosystem of destinations that are approved and disallowing everything else.
