Whether it is technology or e-commerce, financial services or healthcare, industries are facing increasing cyber concerns for insider threats, fraud, abuse, and other malicious activities that harm the integrity as well as products of an organization. Used by several multi-national organizations and enterprises, Maltego plays an integral role in supporting the day-to-day operations of trust and safety teams.
Optimizing Trust & Safety Workflows with Maltego 🔗︎
Maltego helps trust and safety teams to monitor, analyze, remediate, and prevent threats and abuse by filtering through thousands of alerts from User Behavior Analytics (UBA) tools, conducting investigations to pinpoint the cause and outcome of an incident, or implementing due diligence processes. Once automated detections from UBA tools or user reporting platforms are escalated, it is crucial to conduct comprehensive investigations to determine the source, structure, scope and motivation of abuse or user-generated content that is in violation of corporate policies.
With Maltego, trust and safety teams can significantly simplify alert investigations, improve analysis time and resolution rates, and feed insights into internal systems—all with immense supplementary data for extensive contextualization and all-in-one interface.
