  • Patent number: 8667047
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for monitoring traffic in an enterprise network. Similar hosts may be grouped using flow information. Network policy may then be created at the group level based on the signatures of the hosts and groups of hosts in the enterprise. Hosts may be arranged in hierarchical clusters. Some of these clusters may be selected as groups based on a desired degree of similarity between hosts in a group. The similarity between hosts may be determined based on similarity of network behavior of the hosts.

  • Patent number: 7024942
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for the non-destructive detection of pits and pit fragments found in dried fruit has been developed. It utilizes a force transducer and a signal processor to determine whether or not pit or pit fragments are present in a fruit specimen, and is able to automatically separate specimens testing positive from the product stream.
