Ingalls Information Security Gains Patent for Viewpoint & Joins VRARA
May 4, 2021
Ingalls Information Security, a Louisiana based cybersecurity services company, announces its patent award for Viewpoint™, a network security monitoring and correlation system that provides a three-dimensional (3D) visualization of network traffic overlaid with security alerts and other relevant discrete data. This innovative software gives security professionals the ability to see and interact with data spatially, eliminating the need to scroll through massive spreadsheets of technical data. This quantum leap forward in cybersecurity data visualization provides capabilities that have never existed before.
There’s a big problem in cybersecurity: current tools all present information the same way - as a spreadsheet with rows and rows of information that must be individually read, considered, and added to an analyst’s mental model of what is being investigated. “It’s like trying to watch a baseball game through a drinking straw. You never see the whole picture” Jason Ingalls, Chief Executive Officer, explains, “That’s why we built Viewpoint™, to visualize every actor and every event in the cyberspace that we have data for, so we can understand what’s going on and take action a lot faster. We can literally walk through a network node-by-node to trace an event all the way back to its source.” By adding an intuitive element designed for the way the human brain works, Viewpoint™ lets security professionals gain rapid situational awareness that’s not possible in other data presentation systems.
Viewpoint™ was designed for Mission Defense Teams, Cyber Protection Teams (CPTs), Incident Responders (IR), Security Operations Centers (SOC), and those in Virtual and Augmented Reality Cyber Support (VR/AR) who must be able to quickly identify attacks through timely analysis of data in order to effectively protect our nation’s most critical infrastructure.
Brandi Pickett, Director of Ingalls Government Programs division, adds, “We are extremely excited to be part of the VRARA Central Florida Chapter. Ingalls has been in the VR/AR space for a number of years from developing Viewpoint™ to supporting small businesses with VR/AR capabilities to become CMMC ready. It’s great to know we share the same passion for VR/AR technology with this chapter and we look forward to expanding the ecosystem.”
"The use of VR & AR technologies have finally made it to the tipping point of mass adoption and new application areas such as in Cyber Security are unlocking a tremendous amount of value and opportunity. I am thrilled that Ingalls Information Security has joined the VRARA and look forward to their leadership in promoting the adoption of immersive technology in the area of information security" says John Cunningham, Chapter President, VRARA Central Florida.
