  • Publication number: 20190166145
    Abstract: Techniques and mechanisms are disclosed that enable network security analysts and other users to efficiently conduct network security investigations and to produce useful representations of investigation results. As used herein, a network security investigation generally refers to an analysis by an analyst (or team of analysts) of one or more detected network events that may pose internal and/or external threats to a computer network under management. A network security application provides various interfaces that enable users to create investigation timelines, where the investigation timelines display a collection of events related to a particular network security investigation. A network security application further provides functionality to monitor and log user interactions with the network security application, where particular logged user interactions may also be added to one or more investigation timelines.

  • Publication number: 20180157405
    Abstract: Provided are systems and methods for determining and displaying automatically binned information via a graphical user interface. A graphical user interface (GUI) may include a first graphical element representing a first metric value for a first time window and a second graphical element representing a second metric value for a second time window. An indication of a selection of the first time window may be received via the GUI. An updated GUI comprising a third graphical element representing a third metric value for the third time window and a fourth graphical element representing the fourth metric value for the fourth time window may be displayed, wherein the third time window and the fourth time window may be sub-ranges of the first time window.

  • Publication number: 20180157404
    Abstract: Data values for various items are visualized in real-time or near real-time using radial-based techniques to produce data visualizations bearing some resemblance to, for example, pie charts, radial charts, etc. The data values are shown using indicators that encircle, or at least partially encircle, a central point. One or more characteristics of the indicator reflect the value that corresponds to the indicator. The characteristics may include, for instance, the color of the indicator and/or the distance of the indicator (or more specifically, a given point on the indicator) from the central point. The characteristics of the indicators change over time, in accordance with changes in the current values of the data items. A variety of indicators may be used, including, without limitation, points, icons, pie “wedges,” filled or partially-filled sectors of an ellipse or semi-circle, arcs or lines that span between the sides of such sectors, and so forth.

  • Publication number: 20180024702
    Abstract: A visualization can include a set of swim lanes, each swim lane representing information about an event type. An event type can be specified, e.g., as those events having certain keywords and/or having specified value(s) for specified field(s). The swim lane can plot when (within a time range) events of the associated event type occurred. Specifically, each such event can be assigned to a bucket having a bucket time matching the event time. A swim lane can extend along a timeline axis in the visualization, and the buckets can be positioned at a point along the axis that represents the bucket time. Thus, the visualization may indicate whether events were clustered at a point in time. Because the visualization can include a plurality of swim lanes, the visualization can further indicate how timing of events of a first type compare to timing of events of a second type.

  • Publication number: 20170093645
    Abstract: Techniques and mechanisms are disclosed that enable collection of various types of data from cloud computing services and the generation of various dashboards and visualizations to view information about collections of cloud computing resources. A user can configure collection of data from one or more cloud computing services and view visualizations using an application platform referred to herein as a cloud computing management application. A cloud computing management application further may be configured to generate and cause display of interactive topology map representations of cloud computing resources based on the collected data, where an interactive topology map enables users to view an intuitive visualization of a collection of computing resources, efficiently cause performance of actions with respect to various resources displayed in the topology map, and analyze the collection of resources in ways that are not possible using conventional cloud computing service management consoles.
