A method for receiving information via a short message service (SMS) type interface includes determining an input variable and generating an SMS-type prompt including a query for an input of a value corresponding to the input variable. The method also includes transmitting the generated SMS-type prompt to a remote device, receiving a value responsive to the requested input variable, and storing the received value in a memory. The input variable could be bounded and could be presented in an unbounded structure or context in the SMS-type prompt. Generating the SMS-type prompt could include generating a text paragraph having multiple variable fields, where each of the variable fields is configured to receive a value and display an output variable at different times and the variable fields are linked with each other through one or more calculations.

A system, method, and device are presented for assessing a target networks vulnerability to a real cyberthreat based on determining policy-based synthetic tests configured to model the behavior of the cyberthreat. Real-time feedback from the target network (e.g., servers, desktops, and network/monitoring hardware and/or software equipment) are received, analyzed, and used to determine whether any modifications to the same or a new synthesized test is preferred. The technology includes self-healing processes that, using the feedback mechanisms, can attempt to find patches for known vulnerabilities, test for unknown vulnerabilities, and configure the target networks resources in accordance with predefined service-level agreements.

A method and system for constructing risk parity portfolios wherein the overall portfolio risk is diversified by allocating the risk equally or substantially equally across various portfolio components. The system receives a selection of investments assets, covariance matrix of the assets, and constraints including bounds on the weights of the investment assets. The system optimizes a mathematical formulation that is constrained by the bounds on the weights of the investment assets to generate a solution that is used for constructing a risk parity portfolio having optimal asset allocations that result in a balanced risk contribution.

A method includes receiving, at a fabric monitoring system, information identifying occurrences of events in an enterprise system having multiple computing or networking systems. The events occur on or involve computing or networking devices in the computing or networking systems, and the events are identified using rules accessible by the fabric monitoring system. The method also includes processing, using the fabric monitoring system, the information in real-time to identify the occurrences of the events and to assign the events to multiple situations. The events are assigned to the situations using one or more processing models accessible by the fabric monitoring system. The method further includes outputting information identifying the situations.
