Maltego is a platform developed to deliver a clear threat picture to the environment that an organization owns and operates. Maltego’s advantage is to demonstrate the complexity and severity of single points of failure as well as trust relationships that exist currently within the scope of your infrastructure.
Maltego can be used for the information gathering phase of all security related work. It will save you time and will allow you to work more accurately and smarter.
The perspective that Maltego offers to both network and resource based entities is the aggregation of information posted all over the Internet – whether it’s the current configuration of a router poised on the edge of your network or the current whereabouts of your Vice President on his international visits, Maltego can locate, aggregate and visualize this information.
