Infrastructure visualization

Using network mapping software and timeline visualization to manage infrastructure

The infrastructure visualization challenge

To build secure infrastructure, you need to understand connections.

From the internet to gas pipelines, corporate IT systems to global telecoms networks: they’re all complex connected systems. A single point of failure can have a massive impact.

With every connected device or machine generating a digital footprint, it’s easy to produce infrastructure data on a massive scale. The challenge is joining the dots. That’s where network mapping software and data visualization plays a crucial role.

Interactive data visualization – especially network visualization and timeline visualization – is the best tool for making sense of complex infrastructure data.

Let’s see why.

Monitor: network mapping software

Every day, billions of events can take place in a single network. To make sense of these, analysts need to see what’s happening.

With network mapping software or timeline visualization tools, it’s possible to generate dynamic network visualizations from critical infrastructure logs in seconds. These visualizations reveal structures, dependencies, and vulnerabilities that infrastructure managers can use to make systems more resilient and effective.

Network mapping software makes it easier and faster to uncover vulnerabilities and bottlenecks in critical infrastructure networks. These scale from a single connection to tens of thousands, revealing network patterns and specific device behavior.

With a timeline visualization, powered by KronoGraph, we can watch events unfold and connections as they form, revealing fast and valuable insight.

Investigate: understand network incidents

With complex and constantly evolving networks, incidents and outages are inevitable. Armed with effective network mapping software, infrastructure managers can identify and investigate problems, and respond to them quickly.

Root cause analysis, powered by advanced data visualization, reveals what happened during an incident: identifying vulnerabilities, faulty equipment or bottlenecks.

Infrastructure managers need to see cause and effect. Combining a network visualization and a timeline view reveals how and why incidents happen, and their impact on the network.
