Application: Systems and methods for synchronizing device states across a plurality of distributed systems (Patent ID: US20240106710A1)

The patent filed by Zscaler Inc. describes systems and methods for synchronizing device states across distributed systems using a device resync engine. The system operates by actively tracking user actions on devices and ensuring synchronization between two cloud-based systems through API operations. By continuously correcting and updating device states, the system efficiently achieves synchronization while minimizing computational costs.

The patent includes claims for a computer-readable medium, a method, and a system for active synchronization of device states. These claims detail the process of receiving active user device lists, identifying differences between cloud-based systems, and invoking bulk device de-registration to maintain synchronization. The method also includes removing old devices based on timestamps and clean-up thresholds, with the system capable of performing these steps across multiple cloud-based systems. Additionally, any errors during bulk device deletion are ignored to ensure the active device list remains in sync between the systems. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive approach to maintaining device state synchronization across distributed systems efficiently and effectively.
