While the graph approach offers a unified model, finding insights into the enormous volume of data remains a challenge for analysts. To this, must be added the pressure of intelligence consumers that expect analysts to deliver intelligence insights in a timely manner.
As we previously explained, visualization tools can be a great asset for investigation.
- They are code-free;
- They improve your efficiency because our brain understands images faster than it understands texts or figures;
- These tools also increase the chances to discover insights.
When you work with connected data, graph visualization and analysis is definitely a more efficient method than the traditional analysis of spreadsheets or data stored in relational databases.
In addition, graph analysis offers a valuable set of methods to get insights from connected data. For example, there are many algorithms, derived from graph theory and social network analysis, that can be used to identify communities, to spot highly connected individuals or to understand flows of information through a network.
Graph investigation tools, such as Linkurious Enterprise, are an additional asset for intelligence analysts facing the challenges of big data. These tools are designed to enable analysts to uncover insights hidden in complex datasets by leveraging the power of graph databases They also provide more agility than in-house tools or complex proprietary platforms, such as i2 or Palantir.
When it comes to threat detection and investigation, graph investigation tools reduce the complexity and noise induced by the nature and volume of the processed data.
