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 gaining access to user and baseline characteristics, calculating behavioral signatures, determining the degree of variance between them, and comparing it to a threshold to identify differences. The method includes observing various user activities, authentication events, and network traffic to analyze behavior and detect security incidents using heuristic rules, statistical analysis, neural networks, or support vector machines. Identified abnormalities trigger actions or communications to relevant parties.

The system, as outlined in the patent claims, utilizes a processor to implement instructions for monitoring user behavior. It involves observing actions of applications, events, authentication, device access, web browsing, network traffic, and communications to analyze user behavior. The system can identify security incidents, perform analyses using heuristic rules or statistical methods, and communicate information about abnormalities to designated destinations. By comparing user behavioral signatures to group behavioral signatures, deviations are detected, and appropriate actions are taken. The system is designed to enhance security measures by monitoring and analyzing user behavior for abnormalities within a group context.
