Kansas Patent of the Month – March 2024

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, ensuring secure access to computing resources is paramount. Traditional Role Based Access Control (RBAC) systems have served as the backbone for managing authorization, but they come with limitations. Cobalt Iron, Inc, a leader in SaaS-based enterprise data protection technology, has patented a new solution – the Dynamic Authorization Control System.

This system defines a new approach to authorization control by continually monitoring computing networks for conditions that may trigger modifications. These conditions could range from users moving between teams to changes in security alert levels or project statuses.

What sets this system apart is its dynamic and automatic adjustment of user authorization controls in response to identified conditions. Using cutting-edge machine learning analytics, it assesses previous security events to make informed decisions. For instance, if members of a team faced access issues in the past, the system intelligently increases their authorization level to ensure seamless resource access.

The system also addresses the complexities of cloud computing environments, where authentication and access control semantics vary across providers. By adapting to these differences and leveraging multi-dimensional authorization techniques, Cobalt Iron’s solution ensures robust security even in diverse IT landscapes.

Moreover, the system’s ability to dynamically modify authorization controls based on evolving conditions eliminates the need for manual adjustments, reducing the risk of security exposures due to stale permissions. This not only enhances security posture but also streamlines compliance audits, saving time and resources.

With its focus on adaptability, scalability, and efficiency, this invention epitomizes Cobalt Iron’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation in the realm of cybersecurity.
