Application: User in group behavior signature monitor (Patent ID: US20230388292A1)

The patent filed by Acronis International GmbH describes a system and method for monitoring user behavior for abnormalities compared to a group behavior. The system involves calculating behavioral signatures of both the monitored user and a group of baseline users, determining the degree of variance between these signatures, and comparing it to a threshold to identify differences. The method includes accessing characteristics of users, observing various user activities, and analyzing data using heuristic rules, statistical analysis, neural networks, or support vector machines to detect security incidents and communicate abnormalities to relevant parties.

Furthermore, the system assigns users to groups based on similarities in behavioral signatures, allowing for more efficient monitoring and identification of anomalies. The system can observe actions related to applications, events, authentication, device access, web browsing, network traffic, and communications, providing a comprehensive approach to behavior monitoring. By utilizing advanced analysis techniques and taking action upon identifying abnormalities, the system enhances security measures and ensures timely responses to potential threats or irregularities in user behavior.
