Making a positive impact on the world
From our charitable donations to our commitments to sustainability and team well-being, we’re building a business that our team is proud to work for, our customers love to deal with, and that feels part of the community.
At Cambridge Intelligence, we believe that visualizing connections in data will make the world safer.
Until recently, only intelligence agencies and the most secure organizations could visualize connections in data. It required highly-trained analysts and complex specialist software. But as the threat of fraud and cyber-attack has grown, security is now everyone’s priority.
We’re reinventing data visualization techniques to work for everyone, to help organizations secure themselves in the real ‘unclassified’ world.
Here’s our story.
Cambridge Intelligence was founded by Joe Parry, initially from his kitchen before moving into ideaSpace – the Cambridge University enterprise accelerator. Joe had spent the previous decade building data visualization tools for the intelligence market, but had seen an opportunity for more flexible, lightweight and user-friendly tools.

The year v1.0 of KeyLines was launched to our first customers in Australia – a long way from our Cambridge startup hub. They were quickly followed by the US Department of Defense and several others, kick-starting our journey.

Cambridge Intelligence Inc, our US subsidiary, was incorporated in the State of Nevada. We now had 10 customers, including one of the world’s largest payment providers, the US Army, and the UK fraud management authority.

We proudly released KeyLines v2.0 (including the much-loved KeyLines time bar), moved into our own central Cambridge HQ (Intelligence Towers) and held our first Fast Food Friday (later to become Tasty Thursday) beginning a long tradition of team activities involving food.

The year we won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and were invited to Buckingham Palace, joined the Prime Minister on a trip to Washington DC, and introduced the world to KeyLines Geospatial – a great new way to visualize networks on maps.

We supercharged the performance of KeyLines by 5000% with a new WebGL graphics renderer – an enhancement that was recognised by industry giants Gartner. Later that year they named us a ‘Cool Vendor’ in the security software space.

We settled into our new Hills Road HQ. We also joined the UpScale program of the UK’s fastest growing technology companies, and held the first meeting of CDVC – our global network of organizations working together to shape the future of connected data visualization.

Another busy year, with three CDVC meetings (in the US, UK and Israel), the launch of our graduate program and KeyLines 4.0 release, including our game-changing combos functionality.

2021 marked a significant milestone at Cambridge Intelligence as we reached our 10 year anniversary. We looked back at some of the top highlights from an incredible decade.

We celebrated our success by paying it forward, with donations to three charities that work tirelessly to improve lives in our local community.

In 2023 we made changes in senior management, appointing Bryan Amesbury as our new CEO and reshaping our leadership team to support our next phase of growth. Joe Parry remains closely involved in the business, in his role as chair of the board.
We have big plans for the future, but our vision remains clear:
To build the world’s best visualization software that makes the world a safer place.
