White Hat owns three patents that address protection against digital cyber theft across any application used to transfer data packets. The three patents, referred to as the Marshall Digital Security (“MDS”), once embedded securely in any digital transporting environment, functions transparently and strategically removes portions of a digital content packet (referred to as Fragments) rendering it to a stealth-like transmission and thereby making the rest of the packet content (referred to as Segments) useless in case of unauthorized access. Once a packet reaches its destination, the Fragments and Segments are merged together to deliver the digital content as intended to. MDS patents can be embedded in solution offerings to any deemed sensitive environment including government, healthcare, banking, research, 3D printing, media, and gaming. The need for protection against worldwide cyber extraction renders itself to the MDS stealth technology. In addition to licensing its patents, White Hat intends to vigorously pursue infringements on any of its patents.
