Cambridge-US alliance to power global security solutions
Cambridge Intelligence and US company DataStax have announced a technology collaboration that will enable the visualisation of dynamic, complex connected data on a massive scale – powering security solutions for government and financial services customers.
Cambridge Intelligence CEO Joe Parry was presenting the integration at this week’s DataStax Summit Europe.
DataStax is a leading provider of database software for cloud applications. It is probably best known for selling the Cassandra database to enterprise customers such as Netflix – powering their recommendation system – eBay, Target and others.
Cambridge Intelligence created the KeyLines graph visualisation toolkit and from its UK headquarters has become a key player in cyber security.
The announcement coincides with the launch of the DataStax Enterprise (DSE) Graph – a new enterprise graph engine that leverages the power of Apache Cassandra™ and the graph scalability of Apache TinkerPop™.
The transatlantic alliance will allow DataStax customers to easily integrate powerful and scalable graph visualisation capabilities, powered by KeyLines, into their applications.
These applications will empower users across the enterprise with graph visualisation capability, providing an intuitive way to explore, analyse and communicate graph insight.
Early use cases for the technology integration include security and financial services – domains in which making sense of vast graph datasets is a significant challenge.
It is hoped that a combination of DataStax’s enterprise-scale graph database combined with KeyLines’ graph visualisation capability will provide analysts with a new way to detect unusual patterns and uncover intelligence.
Parry said: “We’re excited to be working with the DataStax team as they make their first moves into the graph database market.
“KeyLines is uniquely well placed to help DataStax Enterprise Graph customers uncover new insight in their data. It is the only visualisation solution with the performance and power to handle the vast, ever-evolving connected data the DataStax Enterprise Graph has been built for.”
The announcement follows the release of KeyLines 3.0 earlier this month. The third major version of the graph visualization toolkit incorporates substantial performance enhancements designed to help analysts meet the scale and complexity challenges posed by modern graph data.
