A first security processing stage performs a first multitude of tasks and a second security processing stage performs a second multitude of tasks. The first and second multitude of tasks may include common tasks. The first security processing stage is a prefilter to the second security processing stage. The input data received as a data stream is first processed by the first security processing stage, which in response, generates one or more first processed data streams. The first processed data streams may be further processed by the second security processing stage or may bypass the second security processing stage. The first security processing stage operates at a speed greater than the speed of the second security processing stage.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
