    Optimizing communication speed between a user and an operator LIGHTNING ENGINE is a real-time screen sharing technology. This technology optimally adjusts the quality of image and compressibility ratio based on bandwidth by OPTiM’s original algorithm. It also achieved the world fastest user to operator interaction speed. Optimal Remote

    Identifying devices on a network accurately and collecting device statusTiger is a technology for managing devices on a network in an office or home by using scoring technology. It detects devices in high accuracy with OPTiM’s original technology, DIS (Device Identification by Scoring technology) scoring. Optimal Biz
  • AIC / AIA

    Optimizing known/unknown devices This technology is for initial configuration and diagnosis/repair of devices that have setting interface (ex. HTML). Regardless of discrepancy in interface originated by device makers or different models, it accurately configures devices.

【NEW】Secure Shield: The premier technology for preventing vulnerabilities in mobile security

※Patents were acquired in Japan, U.S.A. and Korea for the world’s first shield technology, “Secure Shield,” included standard in Optimal Biz. The patent is also under application in European countries and other countries.

OPTiM has a patent right on displaying a dummy settings screen instead of the regular one when detecting a request to show the settings screen of a smart device.

・Patent number (patent registration complete)

  • Japan: Patent no. 5714560
  • U.S.A.: US8793703
  • Korea: KR101505893

・Application number (patent pending)

  • Europe: EP2746933
  • China: CN103885671
Common MDM loopholes
With the constraints on Android OS, there is a security loophole due to the common setting that prevents an MDM’s API control, allowing illicit use of the device.

Secure Shield closes this loophole by bringing up a dummy settings screen so that no changes can be made to the common MDM API control settings.

【NEW】Smart UI: Fundamental patented technology for screen-sharing

■ About Smart UI, OPTiM’s fundamental patented technology (Japan Patent No.5756156, 5653301)

※Patents under application in European countries and others

OPTiM acquired two fundamental patent rights in a category of screen-sharing technology.

OPTiM has a patent right of screen-sharing technology that acquires dimensions of the host device’s displayable area and adjusts the screen display ratio of the sharing devices to be the same or near to the width/height acquired.

Moreover, OPTiM has another unique screen information display technology that allows a device performing remote control to judge whether a device displaying screen information is in vertical orientation or horizontal orientation and to display the screen accordingly.

These technologies allow the best experiences shared among host and sharing devices.

OPTiM considers that these are fundamental patents that affect a wide range of products. So, OPTiM will further develop services utilizing these patents and plan to provide the license including patent right use for other corporates.

  • Japan: patent no. 5702352

・Application number (patent pending)

  • U.S.A.: US13/743428
  • Korea: KR20120149587
  • China: CN201310098864
  • Europe: EP13153104
■ Cross site request forgeries (CSRF) prevention (this technology evaluates suspicious text and blocks unauthorized writing)

・Patent number (patent registration complete)

  • Japan: patent no. 5727991
  • Korea: KR101399522

・Application number (patent pending)

  • U.S.A.: US13/751254
  • China: CN201310098826
  • Europe: EP13153102
■ Technology use examples

Unauthorized remote control of a network camera for taking pictures or video can be detected and stopped. Computers that contain “My Number” data (Japan’s Social Security and Tax numbering system) can be protected from unauthorized, malicious remote control from third parties.
(Individuals found to have leaked “My Number” data can be imprisoned for up to four years or fined up to 2 million yen.)

【NEW】1st place in the patent asset individual ranking

Shunji Sugaya, OPTiM CEO, has been ranked the number one Japanese in patent registration score in the telecommunications field!

[Telecommunications] Patents made in for the telecommunications field within all the patents made public by the Japanese Patent Office from 1993 to January 2015

1st place in the patent asset volume ranking※1

※1 The largest ratio of patent asset volume to number of registered patents

※Results based on the total “Patent Score” for each enterprise for patents registered between April 1, 2011 and March 31, 2012.
OPTiM had 19 registered patents considered in this ranking, resulting in 9th place.

1st place in the emerging market ranking

※1: Market capitalization was calculated from the market values taken on December 5, 2014.

※2: “Patent value market value index” is the value resulting from dividing market capitalization by patent asset volume. When patent asset volume is high, but the stock value is low, this figure will be low.
