Echosec Systems Launches Maltego Transforms for Global Social Media and Discussion Data
VICTORIA BC, June 27, 2022
Echosec Systems is thrilled to announce its new Transforms available within Maltego. This integration provides critical insights for Maltego users investigating disinformation, terrorism, information environments, and geopolitical risks.
Echosec Systems is a leader in open-source data aggregation. Since 2014, the company has supported public and private sector organizations with real-time social media, deep web, and dark web data. The Echosec Systems API has been commercially available since early 2020. It offers direct access to global networks, including Asia-Pacific, European, Middle Eastern and African sources, as well as alt-tech and defense forums. The API enriches data to provide geospatial, linguistic, and threat insights.
The Echosec / Maltego integration helps users analyze raw data in real time. The Transforms integrate a variety of increasingly valuable data feeds with Maltego’s industry-standard visual link analysis capabilities. Users can seamlessly draw connections between content authors, map usernames across social networks, and cross-reference data with other Maltego data integrations.
“This integration is making it possible for analysts to see the big picture. The ability to draw connections between entities and interoperate Echosec Systems’ data alongside other Transforms will empower analysts to quickly turn publicly available information into actionable intelligence.” —Echosec Systems CTO, Michael Raypold
"Echosec is a very relevant data source for our investigators from different customer segments. Maltego Enterprise users get access to 50 Transforms Runs per month out of the box to help them understand the potential." Dr Rebecca Kohler, Head of Data Partnerships and Integrations
