THE FIVE PILLARS OF THE MALTEGO OFFERING
Novice investigator or leader of enterprise analyst team, find your customized Maltego solution to optimize your investigations.
At the German Federal Criminal Police Office, we started using Maltego in 2016 and have kept adding more seats ever since. We consider Maltego as an indispensable tool to fight crime for the new generation of policemen.

A great strength of Maltego is the ease of gaining insights from multiple, disparate data sets. In the past couple of years, Maltego has been increasingly developed towards a relevant market place for data and I am excited to see how this will evolve in the future.
Maltego is the first tool I'd install on any researchers laptop, and the first I open any time I'm starting a new investigation. From the ability to access many different data sources through one tool, to the advanced visualisations, its an absolutely essential part of modern cybercrime research
Maltego allows us to quickly pull data from profiles, posts, and comments into one graph, where we can conduct text searches and see connections. In just a few minutes, we can narrow initial research to a handful individuals using variations of aliases connected to suspected local traffickers. We would not have been able to do that without Maltego.
I have been an avid user and advocate of Maltego for many years, using it especially for internet infrastructure mapping. However, its automated search and graphing capabilities make it perfectly suited for creating cryptocurrency transaction maps. If you are looking for a low cost entry into address identification, I highly recommend it.

The Power of Transforms
Transforms are small pieces of code that automatically fetch data from different sources and return the results as visual entities in the desktop client. Transforms are the central elements of Maltego which enable its users to unleash the full potential of the software whilst using a point-and-click logic to run analyses.
Explore step-by-step. Transforms are designed to build on each other, so you can create complex graphs.
Automate in a click. Execute a set of Transforms in a pre-defined sequence to automate routines and workflows.
Create your own queries. Use the Transform Development Toolkit to write and customize your own Transforms, and to integrate new data sources.
