Our Story

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.

  • 2011

    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.

    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.
