Title: STATIC AND DYNAMIC DEVICE PROFILE REPUTATION USING CLOUD-BASED MACHINE LEARNING
Abstract:
Disclosed herein are cloud-based machine learning systems and methods for monitoring networked devices to identify and classify characteristics, to infer typical or atypical behavior and assign reputation profiles across various networked devices, and to make remediation recommendations. In some embodiments, a cloud-based machine learning system may learn the typical operation and interfacing of a plurality of reputable devices that are known to be free from malicious software and other threats. In some embodiments, a cloud-based machine learning system may learn the typical operation and interfacing of a device, and may identify atypical operations or interfaces associated with that device by comparing the operations and interfaces to those of a plurality of networked devices or to those of a defined standard reference device.
