  • Patent number: 11983521
    Abstract: An application hub is provided for applications of an analytical services platform. The analytical services platform may receive data from analytical devices and provide services, such as filtering, processing and visualizing the data. The application hub may act as a landing site for users on client devices to launch applications for the analytical services platform. The application hub may provide a web page to the client devices over a network that provides a user interface listing applications for the analytical services platform. Users may launch the applications through the user interface, such as by selecting user interface elements for the applications. The user interface may identify what applications have been installed on a client device and what applications have not been installed. The user interface may also identify when an application needs to be upgraded. Since the application hub is intended to be a single landing site for al applications, a single login may be provided.

  • Patent number: 11900090
    Abstract: Disclosed are approaches for enforcement of updates for devices unassociated with a domain or directory service. An application executing on a client device can determine that the client device is to use a locator specified in a policy to receive and install updates to software installed on the client device. The application determines whether the client device complies with the policy based at least in part on a value of a registry key stored on the client device. The application then modifies a value of a registry key stored on the client device in an instance in which it is determined that the client device is to use the locator and that the client device does not comply with the policy.

  • Patent number: 11900093
    Abstract: A pipeline can be constructed for implementing a software-stack resolution process. For example, a system can receive a request from a client device for a recommended software-stack for a target software item. The system can also receive pipeline configuration data specifying configurable pipeline units to be included in the pipeline. The pipeline can include a search process for identifying and analyzing a group of software-stack candidates associated with the target software item. The system can construct the pipeline using the configurable pipeline units based on the pipeline configuration data. One or more of the configurable pipeline units can be arranged in the pipeline to guide the search process by adjusting one or more parameters of the search process. The system can then execute the pipeline and transmit a response to the client device indicating a recommended software-stack for the target software item.

  • Patent number: 11743290
    Abstract: A system and method for detecting phishing cyberattacks. The method involves parsing a code segment retrieved using a suspect uniform resource locator (URL) to identify any links included in the code segment. From these links, additional code segments may be recovered in accordance with a code segment recovery scheme. Thereafter, analytics are performed on the retrieved and possibly recovered code segments. The analytics include determining whether any of the code segments is correlated with a code segment associated with a known prior phishing cyberattack. Upon completing the analytics, an alert message including meta-information associated with results from the analytics is generated to identify that the URL is associated with a known prior phishing cyberattack when one or perhaps a combination of code segments associated with the URL are correlated to any code segment associated with a known prior phishing cyberattack.

  • Patent number: 11397658
    Abstract: Techniques for a service provider network to allow users to quickly and easily establish a testing environment to test various virtual machine (VM) instance types for hosting their workloads. Rather than identifying and recommending optimized VM instance types for hosting workloads of users, the techniques allow for users to initially test the VM instance types and determine how well their workloads perform on the VM instance types. Users can quickly and easily (e.g., “one-click” input) request that a testing environment be established. The optimization service can then test one or more recommended VM instance types for the users' workloads in the testing environment. The optimization service can monitor the performance of the VM instance types while they host the “test workloads,” and provide the users with performance metrics to help them decide if they would like to migrate their workloads to the recommended VM instance types.

  • Patent number: 11089474
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to managing access to an enterprise system using remote devices. Techniques are disclosed for provisioning applications on remote devices to access resources in an enterprise system. Specifically, applications may be automatically configured with access information (e.g., account information) and connection information to access a resource in an enterprise system using a remote device. Configuring an application may include determining an account for accessing a resource using the application. An account may be provisioned if one has not been established. Upon configuring an application, the device access management system may provide a configured application to the remote device(s) for which the application is configured. Once the configured application is received, the application may be automatically installed on the remote device, after which the application may be executed to access a resource.

  • Patent number: 10817380
    Abstract: A new snapshot of a storage volume is created by suppressing write requests. Once pending write requests from the computing nodes are completed, storage nodes create a new snapshot for the storage volume by allocating a new segment to the new snapshot. Subsequent write requests to the storage volume are then performed on the segments allocated to the new snapshot. An orchestration layer implements a bundled application that is provisioned with storage volumes and containers. A snapshot of the application may be created and used to rollback or clone the application. The amount of processing cores, memory, and containers may be increased or decreased based on usage. Components of the bundled application may be assigned to nodes to satisfy affinity and anti-affinity rules. Device sets may be generated according to these rules and used to plan for the assignment of storage volumes and containers of the bundled application.
