  • Publication number: 20210042409
    Abstract: A computer security monitoring system and method are disclosed that feature, in one general aspect, monitoring on an ongoing basis for evidence of the presence of infected systems in one or more networks that are each associated with a monitored organizational entity possessing digital assets, continuously updating risk profiles for the entities based on information about intrusion features from the monitoring, aggregating risk scores for the entities, and electronically reporting the aggregated risk score to an end user. In another general aspect, a method is disclosed that includes acquiring and storing data relating to interactions with malware controllers over a public network, acquiring and storing a map of relationships between networks connected to the public network, extracting risk data from the stored interaction data and the stored relationship map by cross-referencing the acquired interaction data against the map of relationships, and issuing security alerts based the extracted risk data.

  • Patent number: 10908792
    Abstract: In one general aspect, an interactive event-based information system is disclosed that includes an event-based data store for storing information about events selectively extracted from a plurality of machine-readable information sources. A live feed extraction interface is responsive to the event-based data store and has a feed publication output operative to publish a live feed of selected information about events. A live event feed user interface includes a live feed display interface operative to present a succession of visual information elements corresponding to events covered in the live event feed, and a drill-down interface responsive to user interaction to provide access to further information about the information elements from the data store.

  • Publication number: 20130132383
    Abstract: In one general aspect, a wide area network fact information service system is disclosed. It includes a real time database that stores information about facts on the network by recording at least an identifier and an occurrence timepoint for each fact, with the occurrence timepoint identifying a time at which the fact occurred. It also includes fact-based expression logic operative to interact with expressions that define relationships between facts based on both their identifiers and their timepoints, a relationship database for storing representations of the relationships that satisfy the expressions, and a service interface operative to allow a service consumer to query the database of stored relationships.

  • Patent number: 8296654
    Abstract: A system for analyzing data is disclosed. In one general aspect it includes a data analysis user interface responsive to user interaction to initiate actions on the data. An action logging interface is operative to create a logged sequence of actions as the user initiates them through the data analysis user interface. And a token-based authoring user interface responsive to user selection commands to select action-tokens corresponding to the actions logged by the action logging interface to create an authored set of actions that has an authored sequence that can be different from the logged sequence.

  • Publication number: 20090132581
    Abstract: In one general aspect, a wide area network fact information service system is disclosed. It can include a fact information extraction interface to extract information about facts from different kinds of textual sources that include information about those facts. A database stores at least some of the extracted information about the facts from the different types of information by recording at least an identifier and an occurrence timepoint for each fact. The system can also include ranking logic to associate a ranking with at least some of the facts, and a service interface to enable a service consumer to access the stored facts based on at least their timepoints and their associated rankings.

  • Patent number: 7216116
    Abstract: A primary graphical input device such as a scroll bar or slider is displayed in order to allow graphical input and adjustment of at least one parameter, such as the page number of a displayed document in a word-processing program or a range value in a data visualization routine. Whenever a user activates the graphical input device, the user may set and change the parameter not only purely graphically, as in conventional applications, for example by dragging some portion of the primary device by moving a mouse, but also by entering a specific value into the secondary graphical input device, for example, via a keyboard. The invention thus provides an intuitive way for a user to quickly and easily navigate graphical objects not only by using pointing devices, but also by entering alphabetic or numeric input, all while maintaining the inherent advantages of “point and click” graphical displays.

  • Patent number: 6405195
    Abstract: Data to be analyzed is transferred from one or more user systems to a host system, which includes an analysis/decision support module. Queries are generated, either automatically by the analysis/decision support module, or by the user, who then submits them to the host system. More than one user may participate in the system, including transferring data to the host. This joint participation includes the option of collaboratively submitting or adjusting queries and viewing the results of the data analysis, either in real time, or asynchronously. Data used as the basis of an analysis may therefore come from different entities, even from data bases that are available publicly via the network, but whose owners are not participants in the collaborative, hosted analysis system according to the invention. The host system thus acts as a network portal through which different users may store and share not only data for analysis, but also the results of such analysis.

  • Patent number: 6014661
    Abstract: A main processing system accesses a data base, which contains data records, each of which is divided into data fields. The system preferably automatically determine the type of data in each field, as well as its range of values. It then preferably determines one or more relational structures of the field data using a corresponding number of relevance measures. For each field, a preferably user-adjustable, software-generated query device is displayed, preferably in the order of the relevance measures of the respective fields. The plot of one or more fields' data relative to that of another field is initially generated using the fields in order of relevance. The relevance measure forming the basis of the field ordering, the order of fields, and the ranges of the plotted, displayed fields may be adjusted interactively by the user by moving and adjusting the various query devices.
