Maltego offers solutions for open source intelligence and visual link analysis
Maltego Desktop Client
The Maltego Desktop Client is the visual interface in which all gathered information is linked and combined. It is a Java application that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Maltego allows users to create graphs step-by-step in an intuitive point-and-click logic. There are currently 5 editions of the Maltego Client:
Maltego One – The latest commercial edition included by default in our Pro and Enterprise plans.
Maltego CE – Community edition for non-commercial use available for free after a quick online registration. It ships with Kali Linux out-the-box.
CaseFile – Free version for commercial use to visualize connections in offline data and does not require the use of Transforms.
Maltego Classic – Commercial version returning 10,000 results per Transform, with access to all functionalities of Maltego, OSINT Transforms and commercial hub partners.
Maltego XL – Commercial version for large investigations to view up to 1,000,000 pieces of information.

A paid connector is an option to access data in Maltego, following a two-step process of getting an API key from the data partner and Hub item access from Maltego. To get access or learn more, simply reach out to us using the contact form on the data source detail page, e.g. here for Orbis data.

Work with Maltego Standard Transforms to enrich your investigations with OSINT data.
Run data queries to discover relationships between Entities through link analysis.
