  • Patent number: 10305929
    Abstract: According to one example, a system and method are disclosed for malware and grayware remediation. For example, the system is operable to identify applications that have some legitimate behavior but that also exhibit some undesirable behavior. A remediation engine is provided to detect malware behavior in otherwise useful applications, and allow the useful parts of the application to run while blocking the malware behavior. In an example method of “healing,” this may involve modifying the application binary to remove undesirable behavior. In an example method of “personalization,” this may involve inserting control hooks through the operating system to prevent certain subroutines from taking effect.

  • Patent number: 9936018
    Abstract: To provide a more seamless experience across multiple devices, task streaming systems and methods allow a user to create “task-contexts” and manage metadata of files stored across multiple data storage devices and user preferences associated with capabilities of the multiple devices for operating on the file. Furthermore, the task streaming systems and methods are provided to allow task-contexts to be shared from one device to another device. A task-context specifies one or more files and one or more operations to be performed on the one or more files. By providing a task-context from one device to the other device, a user can accomplish a task with a particular file and seamlessly transition between devices with minimal disruption and effort.

  • Patent number: 9817843
    Abstract: In an example, one or more computing devices operate to provide a context-aware reputation of a place, such as in relation to a human user. Context may include the user's identity and purpose, as well as environmental factors such as time of day, weather, and political drivers. The device may communicate with a server to receive globalized safety intelligence. When the user enters a zone, the device may determine a context-sensitive reputation, such as “Green,” “Yellow,” or “Red.” Depending on the reputation, the device may then take an appropriate action, such as warning the user or providing additional information.

  • Publication number: 20170195865
    Abstract: A safety event is determined as affecting a user based at least in part context data collected at a user device associated with the user. In some aspects, context data is detected from sensors on the client device, the context data describing a present context of the user. A deviation of the present context from a historical context is determined to be beyond a threshold. Determining that the deviation is beyond the threshold can be determined to correspond to a safety event potentially jeopardizing safety of the user. In some aspects, an action can be launched in response to determining the safety event.

  • Publication number: 20170105171
    Abstract: A system for controlling accesses to network enabled devices includes a network interface over which a hub communicates with network enabled devices, a processor, and a multilayer access control layer. The access control layer includes instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to detect, at the hub, a request representing an attempt by an application executing on a remote host device to access a network enabled device communicatively coupled to the hub, characterize the request according to a user of the remote host device, the application making the attempt, and the network enabled device, and determine whether to allow or deny the request based upon the characterization and a plurality of rules. The rules may include definitions of access rights, with respect to the network enabled device, for users, applications, commands or queries made by applications, remote host devices, and network domains.
