The patent, entitled "Method and system for regulating entry of data into a protected system", represents a breakthrough in the protection of confidential patient data from certain type of malware including viruses, worms and Trojan horses which pose a risk to systems containing such data.

The approach described in the patent details a double-protection system against malware, whereby an unbreakable "taster" processor preempts any attempts from malware programs to compromise the main processor which executes anti-malware protection software.

The processes work completely and seamlessly in the background, in no way compromising the user experience of the main system in which the processors are being used.
