  • Publication number: 20190174197
    Abstract: A method for providing configurable access to media in a media-on-demand system also can include delivering the media to a first client device in a format compatible with the first client device; interrupting the delivery of the media; recording a bookmark specifying a position in the media where the interruption occurred; and suming delivery of the media to a second client device, the resumed delivery beginning at a position in the media specified by the recorded bookmark. The method further can include identifying device properties for each of the first and second client devices; delivering the media to the first client device in a format compatible with the identified device properties for the first client device; and, delivering the media to the second client device in a format compatible with the identified device properties for the second client device.

  • Publication number: 20190108534
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention address deficiencies of the art in respect to social bookmarking and provide a method, system and computer program product for aggregating scoring of tagged content across social bookmarking systems. In an embodiment of the invention, a method for aggregating scoring of tagged content across social bookmarking systems can be provided. The method can include combining tag scores for a tag in content across multiple different social bookmarking systems into a single aggregate tag score and applying the single aggregate tag score to the tag in the content. In this regard, combining tag scores for a tag in content across multiple different social bookmarking systems into a single aggregate tag score can include computing either a simple or a weighted average of the tag scores for the tag to produce the single aggregate score.

  • Patent number: 10152712
    Abstract: A user inspects at least one indicator of an event. The user enables a token corresponding to an account of an aggregating entity to be received by a transaction entity and identifies at least one type of event of interest to be reported by the transaction entity to the aggregating entity. The user obtains and inspects at least one indicator from the account of the aggregating entity, where each obtained indicator is adapted to be created by the aggregating entity based upon an event message received from the transaction entity. The event message comprises the token, which is adapted to be used by the aggregating entity to identify the account and the event message corresponds to an occurrence of an event of at least one type of event of interest to be reported by the transaction entity to the aggregating entity.

  • Publication number: 20180152458
    Abstract: A differential message security policy includes receiving information regarding activities of a user, determining a security risk for the user based on the activities of the user, and setting a security policy for the user based on the security risk. The security policy of the user may be modified based on a change in the security risk of the user or the security risk of the user exceeding a predetermined level. The security risk may be determined based on an aggregated scoring system that uses security variables related to the activities of the user.

  • Publication number: 20180048517
    Abstract: A method for correlating computing network events includes identifying computing resources to be deployed. An identification of a correlation pattern comprising a set of the resources to be deployed is received and a correlation identifier is assigned to the correlation pattern. Each resource of the correlation pattern is configured to include the correlation identifier with an event generated by the respective resource. The resources are then deployed in a computing environment.
