As 2020 draws to a close, it is time to reflect as well as recharge for the upcoming year. This year has been an unprecedented one in many ways, as we have grappled with a worldwide pandemic and its many economic and social side effects. At Maltego, we are fortunate to have come out stronger, not just in numbers but also in spirit.
A Community Comes Together 🔗︎
As COVID-19 caught us all rather unprepared, we wanted to do our bit too. We provided free commercial Maltego licenses to support investigators who urgently needed Maltego to fight scammers, misinformation & cyber-attacks. We were overwhelmed and truly inspired by the amazing and tireless investigative work that the community undertook to combat challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis.
Our own subject matter experts published strategies in which Maltego could be used to effectively fight these challenges, e.g. for tracing the chain of COVID-19 infection spread through social media analysis , or for uncovering phishing domains by analyzing domain infrastructure and for mapping suppliers of personal protection equipment .
Setting the Course for Growth 🔗︎
Over the past two years, the Maltego Technologies team has set up and built up operations out of Munich, Germany. During this time, Maltego has grown significantly in both new capabilities and customer usage. We assembled a great team of experts, as well as dedicated teams for customer success, data integrations, technical operations, etc., who devote themselves to helping investigators safeguard their organizations and communities. We work hard every day to improve Maltego for the investigative community whom we seek to empower with new content, data integrations and capabilities, and we do so through our improved service and learning opportunities, new data integrations, and our dedicated channels such as our blog , webinars , online community events, and more.
New Plans for Professionals and Enterprises 🔗︎
The direct interaction with our user community from around the globe has led us to gain a greater understanding of the needs of our Community, Professional and Enterprise customers. As a result, we have introduced new plans to assist our professional users to make the most of their time by simplifying data access, learning, as well as the product selection and purchase process, which you can read about here .
Bigger and Better Data Integrations 🔗︎
Recognizing the value of data integration to our users, our team continues its work to ensure and enhance the variety, quality and accessibility of the Maltego Transform Hub . We have added 11 new data integrations, updated 3 Hub items with powerful Transforms, and launched data bundles for Pipl , and CipherTrace .
New and Improved Learning Experience 🔗︎
