The infrastructure data challenge
The world’s infrastructure relies on understanding connections. From the internet to gas pipelines, corporate IT systems to global telecoms networks: they’re all critical systems based on connections. A single point of failure can have a massive impact.
For that reason, organizations invest heavily in tools to monitor and manage infrastructure. These tools generate huge volumes of densely connected information, keeping record of every device, connection and event, in real time.
With this information, organizations want to interpret their network structure (discovery), and proactively respond to threats and vulnerabilities (defense). This can only be achieved by understanding their data. That’s where network visualization plays a crucial role.
The network visualization solution
Often, network analysts create their own network diagrams using painfully inefficient diagramming tools. Using network visualization tools instead, it’s possible to generate dynamic visualizations of critical infrastructure networks from logs in seconds.
In this blog post, we’ve seen how combining infrastructure data with our network visualization technology makes it easier and faster to uncover vulnerabilities and faults in critical IT networks.
Network analysts also need to understand their infrastructure networks from varying degrees of detail. Starting from a high-level overview, they might need to drill into detail to find specific devices or connections. Alternatively, they may need to zoom outwards to undercover the context around a specific network point, possibly switching from logical to geographic views. Our network visualization software makes that simple and intuitive.

In this blog post, we’ll show you how graph visualization can make alert detection and investigation more effective, and help you gain a clearer understanding of your infrastructure.
Why graph visualization, powered by the KeyLines toolkit, is the ideal technique to explore, understand and help protect critical infrastructure networks.
Let's look at some of the less obvious uses for graph visualization and link analysis, including compliance, operations and knowledge management.
