About us
For more than 10 years, the Maltego application has empowered investigators around the world to make sense of data. Today we have more than 500 k Maltego users ranging from journalists to international banks, Silicon Valley tech companies to government agencies.

The Maltego application is a visual link analysis tool that, out the box, comes with open source intelligence (OSINT) plugins which are called transforms. The tool offers real-time data mining and information gathering. It represents  this information on a node based graph which makes patterns and multiple-order connections between pieces of information easily identifiable.

Maltego Tech is a newly founded company and a close partner to Paterva, the company that has brought Maltego to being. We are based in the heart of Munich, Germany, with collaborators all around the world to serve our global community.  Join our small but growing team and make a difference!
