Link analysis for security & intelligence

Revealing insight in security and intelligence data

The security & intelligence data challenge

Intelligence is critical to defense. Defending a nation means understanding threats, and it’s the analyst’s role to interpret and communicate threat information to decision-makers at all levels.

The task is complicated by the growing volumes of data available on individuals, groups, events, locations, events, resources, systems, agencies, etc. These datasets often sit in multiple places in multiple formats, from structured records to disorganized human intelligence reports.

Analysts need sophisticated tools to visualize the relationships and patterns in these large datasets, so they can play their vital role and ensure mission success.

The link analysis solutions

In a military and defense environment, link analysis solves the problem of how to acquire, analyze and present critical intelligence.

Link analysis technologies can help your analysts bring their complex, densely-connected data to life in scenarios including:

  • exploring lawful intercept communications data
  • understanding terror cell / criminal gang network structures
  • following the flow of enemy finances or resource
  • managing logistics
  • co-ordinating incident responses
