A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11922204B1) outlines a method for managing computing assets within a networked environment. The method involves collecting information from multiple data sources, storing and supplementing this data, generating log files associated with computing assets, and creating an asset search index based on these files. The patent emphasizes the importance of grouping computing asset information by asset type and normalizing the data for efficient management.

Furthermore, the patent details the attributes associated with computing assets, such as public facing indicators and vulnerability assessments. It also introduces the concept of an asset search interface that allows users to query the asset search index for specific attributes, facilitating the identification of relevant computing assets. The patent also describes a system and computer-readable storage medium that implement these methods, highlighting the generation of log files, asset search indexes, and the normalization of computing asset information. Overall, the patent aims to streamline the management of computing assets within complex networked environments by leveraging multiple data sources and attributes for efficient asset tracking and search capabilities.
