A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11956279B2) outlines a method for enhancing security on devices by monitoring communication between the device and external devices. The method involves determining different levels of in-device protection for each external device, with higher levels indicating a greater need for security measures. Based on these levels, specific security policies are employed for communications originating from each device, with more resources allocated to devices with higher protection levels. Additionally, the method includes inducing external devices to report irregular communications to a server, triggering the installation of new security agents to mitigate potential risks.

Furthermore, the patent details the utilization of trusted security agents and servers to validate and process communications, enhancing security measures for devices. By employing different security policies and actions based on the level of in-device protection, the method aims to safeguard against compromising actions and potential vulnerabilities. The patent also includes provisions for requesting vendors to install security agents on devices and installing new security agents on connected devices to mitigate risks effectively. Overall, the method described in the patent offers a comprehensive approach to device security by adapting security measures based on the specific protection needs of external devices and leveraging trusted resources to enhance overall security protocols.
