Tom Sawyer Showcases Software at Security Conference

Scalable and Customizable Visualization and Analysis Technologies Featured

Oakland, CA, December 1, 2003—Tom Sawyer Software, the leader in high-performance visualization, layout, and analysis solutions, is one of 53 exhibitors demonstrating its products at the E-Gov Homeland Security Conference in Washington, D.C. on December 2 and 3, 2003. The company will demonstrate Tom Sawyer Graph Visualization and Tom Sawyer Graph Analysis, a family of products suited to supporting the Department of Homeland Security's mission to reduce vulnerability to terrorism and prevent terrorist attacks within the United States.

"With the heightened awareness of terrorism domestically and abroad, intelligence agencies and security organizations are increasingly relying on analysis and visualization solutions to more efficiently manage and better understand information," said Brendan Madden, president and CEO of Tom Sawyer Software. "Our products empower organizations and businesses to explore patterns and relationships, and discover information underlying their relational databases to ultimately gain insights that were previously unclear or unknown."

The customizable analysis and visualization technology creates an intuitive visual representation of complex network systems, financial flows, social network structures, system infrastructure hierarchies, organizational systems and other larger relational data structures. The products based on this technology are designed to scale upward with minimal degradation in performance so that representing thousands of objects and relationships is achievable.

The Graph Visualization product line manages, reveals and displays graphical and customized views of relational data, immediately identifying relationships, connections and emerging patterns among people, organizations, bank accounts or telephone calls. Graph Visualization visually presents information relevant to an investigation, resulting in faster and more efficient decision-making processes. The Graph Analysis family of products integrates algorithmic analysis within applications and performs highly sophisticated analytic queries on relational information models. Graph Analysis performs structured graph traversal, dependency analysis, network flow analysis, impact analysis, cycle detection, process analysis and other sophisticated queries on relational modes.

Graph Visualization products are available for Java, MFC, ActiveX and .Net; the Graph Analysis products are available for Java and C++.

"When the products are seamlessly bundled, organizations have the benefits of both excellent algorithmic and visual analysis," said Madden. "This combination results in accurate correlations that quickly establish associations and significantly expedite the decision-making process."
