  • Patent number: 10728262
    Abstract: A computer system is configured to generate alerts related to malicious activity on an audited computing system. The computing system is provided with instructions to receive activity information associated with activity of an entity performed in an audited computing network, access contextual information associated with the entity, determine, based on the contextual information, a set of weights associated with the activity information and combine the weight and the entity activity information to generate a risk score. In response to the risk score satisfying a threshold value, the computer system may generate an alert, and, in response to receiving a user input associated with the alert, update the set of weights. In certain embodiments, the updated weights may be used for determining the risk score of future alerts.

  • Patent number: 10719527
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a computer system and interactive user interfaces configured to enable efficient and rapid access to multiple different data sources simultaneously, and by an unskilled user. The unskilled user may provide simple and intuitive search terms to the system, and the system may thereby automatically query multiple related data sources of different types and present results to the user. Data sources in the system may be efficiently interrelated with one another by way of a mathematical graph in which nodes represent data sources and/or portions of data sources (for example, database tables), and edges represent relationships among the data sources and/or portions of data sources. For example, edges may indicate relationships between particular rows and/or columns of various tables. The table graph enables a compact and memory efficient storage of relationships among various disparate data sources.

  • Patent number: 10721142
    Abstract: A system for troubleshooting network problems is disclosed. A model can use demographic information, network usage information, and network membership information to determine an importance of a problem. The importance of the problem for the user who reported the problem, a number of other users affected by the problem, and the importance of the problem to the other users can be used to determine a priority for resolving the problem. Before and after a work order is executed to resolve the problem, network metrics can be gathered, including aggregate network metrics, and automatically presented in various user interfaces. The analysis of the metrics can be used to update a database of which work orders are assigned in response to which problems.
