Link analysis tools have long been a staple for security analysts performing security, threat and fraud investigations. While these tools have helped analysts individually investigate threats, collaborating on research or sharing information typically requires manual, time-consuming processes. Security teams today need to work efficiently and as collaboratively and this is where current tools fall short.

  • Conduct investigations more efficiently by bringing all data sources together and automating common analyst queries.
  • Enable real-time information sharing and collaboration by creating trusted groups within your organization or across your industry.

  • Reduce time spent on manual administrative tasks by easily creating, reviewing and delivering fi.in shed intelligence directly from Avalon
