  • Patent number: 11763241
    Abstract: In an example embodiment, machine learning is utilized to automatically identify pain points of an entity. More particularly, a random forest search algorithm receives inputs from a number of different outside-in data engines. These inputs are segregated in terms of key performance indexes (KPIs), which is then fed to a random forest decision tree. The random forest search algorithm calculates a p-value for each KPI. This p-value may then be used to identify the most relevant KPIs (such as by ranking the KPIs by their respective p-values). Rules are utilized not to identify the pain points themselves, but instead to define sorting preferences (refine the ranking). Based on a combination of the p-values and the evaluation of the rules, the top-N pain points may be identified.

  • Patent number: 11509681
    Abstract: An apparatus comprises a processing device configured to receive, at a user interface of a trust platform configured to manage cloud assets operating in clouds of two or more cloud service providers, a request to view multi-cloud relative risk information for at least a subset of the cloud assets on which workloads of a given entity run. The processing device is also configured to obtain, utilizing application programming interfaces of the trust platform, first and second sets of cloud asset risk data generated by first and second pluralities of monitoring tools operating in tenant and management environments of the clouds of the two or more cloud service providers. The processing device is further configured to generate and provide, at the user interface of the trust platform, a unified view of the multi-cloud relative risk information utilizing the first and second sets of cloud asset risk data.

  • Patent number: 11507036
    Abstract: A method includes obtaining data associated with operation of a model-based industrial process controller. The method also includes identifying at least one estimated impact of at least one operational problem of the industrial process controller, where each estimated impact is expressed in terms of a lost opportunity associated with operation of the industrial process controller. The method further includes presenting the at least one estimated impact to a user. The at least one estimated impact could include impacts associated with noise or variance in process variables used by the industrial process controller, misconfiguration of an optimizer in the industrial process controller, one or more limits on one or more process variables, a quality of at least one model used by the industrial process controller, a quality of one or more inferred properties used by the industrial process controller, or one or more process variables being dropped from use by the industrial process controller.

  • Patent number: 11481708
    Abstract: A system to provide an automated data driven risk relationship review tool via a back-end application computer server of an enterprise. A resource allocation data store may contain electronic records representing requested resource allocations between the enterprise and a plurality of entities. The server may receive an indication of a selected requested resource allocation and retrieve, from the resource allocation data store, the electronic record associated with the selected requested resource allocation. The server may automatically calculate a first and second review date for the selected requested resource allocation and automatically establish a communication link based on the first review date for the selected requested resource allocation. The system may then support a graphical interactive user interface display via a distributed communication network, the interactive user interface display providing resource allocation data in connection with the second review date.

  • Patent number: 11438362
    Abstract: A system, a method, and a computer program for remediating a vulnerability on a computing resource asset located in a computer network that has a plurality of other computing resource assets each having at last one vulnerability, where a Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) score is determined for the vulnerability. Vulnerability scanning results data corresponding to the computing resource asset can be analyzed and an environmental factor weighting score value determined for each of a plurality of environmentally-dependent factors. The environmental factor weighting score values and CVSS score can be aggregated and an adjusted environmental factor weighting score aggregate value generated. A prioritization score value for the vulnerability on the computing resource asset can be determined based on the adjusted environmental factor weighting score aggregate value and the vulnerability remediated on each of the computing resource assets according to the prioritization score value.

  • Patent number: 11416867
    Abstract: A device may receive transaction data associated with transactions. The transaction data may be associated with transaction entries that are associated with the transactions. The device may process, using a matching model, the transaction entries to classify the transaction entries into a set of matched transaction entries and a set of unmatched transaction entries. The device may update a transaction grouping model based on the set of matched transaction entries to create an updated transaction grouping model. The device may determine, using the updated transaction grouping model, that a subset of the set of unmatched transaction entries are associated with a same transaction. The device may classify the subset of the set of unmatched transaction entries as grouped transaction entries. The device may provide an indication that the grouped transaction entries and the set of matched transaction entries are reconciled transactions.
