Graph visualization for cyber security

How our technologies help solve the cyber security data challenge

The cyber security data challenge

IP information, server logs, communications records: most cyber data is huge, automatically generated at millisecond levels of resolution. For many organizations, the result is terabytes of data and billions of alerts every day.

At that volume, it’s impossible to effectively review or triage every possible threat, even with the help of modern SIEM tools and security operations centers.

The result: alerts get missed, vulnerabilities are exploited and post-attack forensics lack insight.

How graph visualization can help

To overcome these scale and complexity of challenges, cyber security analysts need powerful analysis and visualization tools.

Our graph visualization software is often integrated into cyber security platforms, offering intuitive data views that lead to more effective cyber operations.

Anomaly detection

Patterns and trends are interesting, but often cyber analysts need to find outliers. Visualizing large volumes of case data in one chart, we can easily uncover unusual patterns of activity that require further investigation.

Incident forensics

Visualization also helps with incident forensics. By analyzing log data, analysts can understand sequences of events that led up to a incident, helping to uncover previously unseen vulnerabilities.

Threat detection and analysis

Graph visualization can also be used to identify possible future threats and facilitate the sharing of cyber intelligence. EclecticIQ have used our technologies to build a cyber threat intelligence platform that provides a clear view of cyber threats:

How we can help

We’ve worked with businesses, governments and software vendors to build the next generation of cyber security data visualization platforms. Using our graph visualization technology, they’ve been able to:

  • Put analysts in the driving seat – build a custom network visualization web application that allows analysts to explore data at their own pace, and at their own scale.
  • Share data insight – our technologies work in any modern web browser on any device, including smartphones and tablets.
  • Harness powerful graph visualization functionality – including filtering, time-based analysis, geospatial visualization, social network analysis and node grouping.
