Graphs are what we do

A passion for all things graph is at the core of all we do at Tom Sawyer Software. Since 1992, we've perfected our graph layout technology and gained a reputation as the leader in graph visualization and analysis technology.

Our staff of global graph enthusiasts work tirelessly to support our customers' graph visualization journey, whether that's combating fraud, making sense of complex systems, or analyzing social networks.

What's with the name Tom Sawyer Software?

We're asked this question. A lot.

Our founders started Tom Sawyer Software with the same enthusiasm, spirit of adventure, and fearless exploration of the literary Tom Sawyer. It's also possible they spent time writing code while listening to the progressive rock band Rush, who has a hit song by the same name.

Today, the name Tom Sawyer represents the hard work, innovation, and "mean, mean pride" that goes into everything we do.
