  • Patent number: 10152687
    Abstract: Building and maintaining an accurate and up-to-date inventory of applications deployed throughout an organization are described. In one aspect, an application directory facilitates automated and standardized entry of information on an application. The application directory provides a series of browser-rendered interfaces that collects data about the application. These different types of data are organized according to a logical data model that defines multiple hierarchical levels of data types and relationships amongst the hierarchical levels. The collection of registered applications forms an inventory that may be used to manage these assets. In another aspect, the application directory allows authorized users to manage the inventory of applications.

  • Patent number: 10044746
    Abstract: A system, method, and device are presented for assessing a target network's vulnerability to a real cyberthreat based on determining policy-based synthetic tests configured to model the behavior of the cyberthreat. Real-time feedback from the target network (e.g., servers, desktops, and network/monitoring hardware and/or software equipment) are received, analyzed, and used to determine whether any modifications to the same or a new synthesized test is preferred. The technology includes self-healing processes that, using the feedback mechanisms, can attempt to find patches for known vulnerabilities, test for unknown vulnerabilities, and configure the target network's resources in accordance with predefined service-level agreements.

  • Patent number: 10031787
    Abstract: According to some embodiments, a method includes running a first application program on a computer system, running a second application program on the computer system, and running a data availability manager (DAM) program on the computer system. The first application program is operative to indicate to the DAM program that a first data item processed by the first application program is available for further processing. The DAM program is operative to determine a second data item that is dependent for processing upon availability of the first data item and to indicate to the second application program that the second data item is ready for processing.

  • Patent number: 9893959
    Abstract: System and method for modeling resource requirements using a resource modeling language to specify and control the placement of resources in a cloud environment are disclosed. Modeling the resource requirements provides control over placement of resources when resiliency, latency and/or other requirements are imposed. In some embodiments, the resource modeling language enables a client to specify number, type and specification of resources as well as set of relationships among the resources. In various embodiments, the system receives via a user interface resource modeling information including specification of one or more resources and a set of rules for placement of the one or more resources in a cloud environment. The system then creates a model based on the resource modeling information, which is stored in a datastore. In response to a request, the system places an order with a cloud controller to instantiate the model in the cloud environment.

  • Patent number: 9704143
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to security settlement in financial markets and cryptographic currencies. Particular portions of the present disclosure are directed to a cryptographic currency protocol and to a cryptographic currency that includes a positional item. The cryptographic currency protocol supports a virtual wallet that, in various embodiments, is a security and cash account for storing and managing the cryptographic currency. Opening a transaction via the virtual wallet to transfer the cryptographic currency is a strong guarantee of the availability of funds in the virtual wallet because, e.g., funds are not transacted unless the commit phase is successful.

  • Patent number: 9659329
    Abstract: Computer-implemented trading of financial products can include using a first communication channel to stream offering data for a plurality of different financial products from a server to a trading terminal. A second communication channel can be used to receive request for offers about ones of the financial products from the trading terminal. Such request can include user-specified parameters that modify or further specify characteristics of the desired products. Offers may then be determined for the product in accordance with the user-specified parameters and transmitted (over the second communication channel) back to the trading terminal. Each communication channel can be allocated a different priority and/or different level of system processing resources to optimize the allocation of system resources based on the criticality of data on each channel.

  • Patent number: 9646284
    Abstract: Building and maintaining an accurate and up-to-date global inventory of hardware, software, and telecommunications assets deployed throughout an organization is described. A global inventory warehouse (GIW) receives an identification and physical location of these assets from multiple source systems. Some of these source systems contain information pertaining to the assets that has been manually entered into the source system by a human administrator. Other source systems, meanwhile, contain information that has been automatically collected by the source systems without human intervention. The GIW receives this information from the source systems and stores it within a GIW database. The GIW database may thus contain a global inventory of all or nearly all of the hardware, software, and telecommunications assets distributed throughout the organization. This database may also contain an identification of physical locations within the organization of all or substantially all of these assets.

  • Patent number: 9558037
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided to allocate application tasks to a pool of processing machines. According to some embodiments, a requestor generates a scope request including an indication of a number of compute units to be reserved. The requestor also provides an application request associated with the scope. A subset of available processing machines may then be allocated to the scope, and the application request is divided into a number of different tasks. Each task may then be assigned to a processing machine that has been allocated to the application request. According to some embodiments, each task is associated with a deadline. Moreover, according to some embodiments an overall cost is determined and then allocated to the requestor based on the number of compute units that were reserved for the scope.

  • Patent number: 9495707
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided to generate and exchange pricing information by a pricing engine. According to one embodiment, a pricing graph having a plurality of inter-dependent nodes is constructed. The pricing graph includes at least one input pricing information node and output pricing information node. In addition, at least one node provides information that effects information received by that node. A frame is established with at least one input pricing information slot and output pricing information slot. The pricing graph is then executed via a pricing engine in substantially real time. As a result, a value in the input pricing information slot is provided to the input pricing information node and a value for the output pricing information slot is received from the output pricing information node.
