Product design is as much exploration as it is execution.

My team has done all kinds of work at Symantec, from thoroughly lab-tested end user products to conceptual designs for complex enterprise security solutions.  What you see here are rapidly created concepts that were shared with potential customers and partners. Some of the ideas here were scrapped, others made it into the product, and still more are queued up to be added later.

Primary role: User Experience Manager

Design team: Vinoth Raghavan

Contribution: I provided guidance on the overall concept, visual style, and helped brainstorm product features.

As with every other company, we're taking our products to the cloud. The interface above is a concept for how admins would scan and monitor confidential files. It's a robust Axure prototype that PM used to demonstrate the idea and solicit feedback.

We delivered this over a 3-week period with very loose requirements. Our design approach considered the need to illustrate use cases in  a contextual manner, meaning we didn't want the presenter clicking from page to page to page. Instead, we added sliding panels and modules that likely would be different in the real product. 

This is an early version of what is being called the "organism." It's a visual representation of connected devices. It also can be used for kill chains, where a security analyst can see how a virus made its way through their network.

With one glance, you can see what applications and servers a user is connected to, and where they may have put confidential data. 

We did not invent the radar graph, but we came up with an interesting version of it. This graph shows how an individual rates in a number of security risks. The pink is a risky employee (Fred), and the green is the average rating for the rest of his department. You can see that Fred rates pretty high for data exfiltration (moving files to insecure places).
