ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 29 -- Microsoft, Redmond, Wash., has been assigned a patent (8,521,829) developed by Lior Kohavi, Shoham, Israel, for a "system and method for providing conditional access to server-based applications from remote access devices."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems and methods are provided for providing users at remote access devices with conditional access to server-based applications. Requests for access to server-based applications (e.g., requests to launch or obtain data associated with the server-based applications) by remote access devices may be prevented or allowed based on device compliance with one or more policies including whether data-retention prevention code can be downloaded to and operational on the remote access devices. The data-retention prevention code may be used to both determine whether data can be automatically deleted from a cache or file directory at the remote access device and to delete potentially retention-sensitive data once the data is downloaded to the remote access device from the server-based application."
The patent application was filed on Aug. 31, 2010 (12/872,699). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8521829.PN.&OS=PN/8521829&RS=PN/8521829
