Graph and timeline visualization for cyber security data

The cyber security visualization challenge

Cyber threat analysts have a tough job.

They need to understand big, complex, high-velocity data from across their organization. They need to know which of the billions of alerts raised each day demand an immediate response. They need to spot and predict fast-evolving threats from unpredictable sources.

If they fail, their organization is at risk of malicious attack.

The cyber security visualization challenge

Analysts need interactive cyber security visualization – especially graph visualization and timeline visualization. It’s the best tool available to make sense of cyber threat intelligence.

Let’s see why.

Predict: Visualize cyber threat intelligence

Understanding cyber threat intelligence is key to the cyber analyst’s job. They need to identify which threats exist, and how those threats could impact the organization.

There’s no shortage of intelligence available. The challenge is making sense of it and sharing the insight. That’s where graph visualization and timeline visualization are crucial.

Cyber threat intelligence is densely connected. Visualizing those connections as a graph uncovers the patterns, outliers, and anomalies in a way that reveals your threat landscape and the kinds of attacks you might face.

Analysts need to see cause and effect. Combine graph and timeline views in a cyber security visualization to reveal how and why cyber threats happen, and their impact on the network.

It’s impossible to protect a cloud network when you don’t know what assets you have, or how they’re connected. Visual representations bring situational awareness and actionable insights to cloud security analysts.

Monitor: Build smarter SOCs with data visualization

Every day, billions of alerts are raised across networks. Security Operations Centers (SOCs) have to make sense of what’s going on. These central hubs provide visual interfaces and dashboards tracking alerts and activities to help analysts monitor and respond in real-time.

Interactive graph visualization and timeline visualization functionality is an essential component of an effective SOC, providing a fast, intuitive and insightful view of the data.

Using interactive graph visualization we can see events unfold in the network at a glance, powering cyber threat analysis processes.

Timeline visualization helps analysts understand the alerts across their cloud landscape, and detect malicious attacks.

Investigate: Understand attacks and fix vulnerabilities

The complexity, scale and fast-changing nature of cyber threats mean that – even with the most efficient defenses – breaches are inevitable in most large organizations.

Cyber resilience and effective forensics can allow you to quickly identify breaches and patch vulnerabilities before serious damage can take place. Cyber security data visualization is key to this.

Root cause analysis, powered by advanced data visualization, reveals what happened during an incident: the attack vectors, vulnerabilities, affected devices and scale of damage.

Investigators use recognized frameworks, such as MITRE ATT&CK, to put related timeline events in context and see which cloud assets were affected.

Custom cyber security data visualization

We work with businesses, governments and software vendors worldwide to create the next generation of cyber threat intelligence analysis tools.

Using our graph visualization and timeline visualization technologies, they’ve been able to build interactive applications that join the dots and reveal the cyber threat intelligence they need to understand.
