Traditional visualization approaches, especially in the cyber-security area, broadly attempt to visualize statistical data (either raw or processed) in a one-size-fits-all fashion, paying little (or no) attention to business issues, stemming from: a) the way specific vertical markets operate or b) the needs of individual field experts (internal sponsors, CISO, advanced/power users, etc.) This, often, necessitates a meta-analysis, i.e. a manual or semi-automated business interpretation of provided statistics, based on end-users background, relevant experience and analytical capabilities. Apart from siloing decision making knowledge where instant collaboration is necessary, this practice actually plays the role of an overall time-, money- and intelligence-consumer, ending up to keep value under the radar. What is really needed is the provision of pre-configured out-of-the-box visualizations (as a “scalable” flexible library), based on advanced business thinking and sophisticated data architectures, capable to actively and easily support self-service enhancements.
Swordfish Visualization and Analytics Application best fulfils this need, by delivering ontology-based dashboards and graphs, founded on Obrela’s long standing cyber security international experience as consultant, integrator and SOC performer. In this way, Swordfish can: a) suggest advanced visual “solution paths to decision making” to both day-to-day and strategic cyber security issues to be resolved and b) enable end users to create their visual ecosystem, depicting their way of approaching business.
At a glance:
- Visualization and Analytics are about business and not plain statistics. Intelligent visualization is a kind of meta-data for business decision making, thus end-to-end analytics, i.e. analytics with decision in mind, is the new gold in cyber-security.
- Advanced business thinking, out-of-the-box visualization techniques and flexibility in creating self-service dashboards is the winning blend.
- A successful approach should suggest advanced visual “solution paths to decision making” to both day-to-day and strategic cyber security issues to be resolved and enable end users to create their visual ecosystem, depicting their way of approaching business.
