Application: Scalable automated training framework (Patent ID: US20240089282A1)

The patent filed by Rubrik Inc. describes a method and apparatus for implementing a scalable automated training framework for anomaly and ransomware detection. The technique involves simulating user actions and ransomware on virtual machines to generate training data for malware detection. This training data is then used to train a machine learning model for malware detection, with the ability to detect different types of malware based on subsets of training data. The method includes obtaining snapshots of virtual machines to track changes in file systems, comparing these snapshots to generate training data, and simulating various user actions such as interface manipulation, resource navigation, and web browsing to simulate malware presence.

The apparatus described in the patent includes one or more processors executing code to simulate user actions on virtual machines in the presence of simulated malware, generate training data based on these actions, and train a machine learning model for malware detection. The processors are further capable of obtaining snapshots of virtual machines, comparing changes in file systems, and simulating different user actions to enhance the detection capabilities of the model. Additionally, the patent covers a non-transitory computer-readable medium storing code that enables the execution of the described method for training a machine learning model to detect malware, including specific types of malware based on subsets of training data.
