U.S. Patent Nos. 9,378,380 and 9,390,228


The SEED Protocol came to life when the CEO of a mid-size health system, a client of Reid’s consulting practice, challenged Tom to design a better solution for health information exchange. At the same time, the CIO of the same healthcare provider wanted to securely leverage commodity cloud storage to reduce the costs for storing medical records.  

Starting with a blank piece of paper, Reid designed the Secure Exchange of Encrypted Data.  Once Reid and his original co-inventor realized that no company was offering the solution, they began the process of securing rights to the intellectual property.

The SEED Protocol’s expansive intellectual property includes 80+ claims across three issued U.S. patents providing robust protection.  Our fourth U.S. patent application filed in April 2018 broadens the claims.  SEED Protocol has also filed for patent protection in the European Union. 

SEED Protocol LLC is a transatlantic startup developing the USA and Europe in parallel. We share common goals while embracing geopolitical differences in the evolution of data security policies and laws.

SEED Protocol is cybersecurity solution.

Please help us inform and empower.
