Visual Analytics

Our focus is Information Visualization: presenting complex information in an interactive visual format to help make sense of it all.



MeerCAT® is a visual analytics tool designed to help users locate wireless assets and networks, and assess the risks to their organization. Initially developed for and in close collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense, MeerCAT integrates data from wireless discovery and other security applications with a geographic information system (GIS) to provide a unified view of detected wireless devices, their vulnerabilities and threats.




Critical infrastructures can be vulnerable to cyber attacks through 802.11 wireless networks. WildCAT is a prototype system that enables integration of physical and cyber security resources in order to detect and immediately respond to wireless threats. It is designed to use physical security vehicles as a platform to collect wireless activity and send the data via a cellular network to an analysis center.



VIAssist is a visual analysis platform to help network security analysts protect their networks. It provides visual tools for theevaluation of network flow and security data. VIAssist presents multiple, coordinated views – highlighted or filtered data in one view is reflected in all other views – to provide different visual perspectives of the data. These views transform network data into a collection of interactive visualizations that make it easier to analyze data, to see patterns and trends, and to identify risks and actionable information.
