What we do
At Paterva we make an application called Maltego which is a visual link analysis tool that, out the box, comes with open source intelligence (OSINT) plugins – called transforms. The tool offers real-time data mining and information gathering as well as the representation of this information on a node based graph making patterns and multiple order connections between said information easily identifiable.
Paterva is not managed like any other company. From late nights to exotic locations we move fast and get things done. Having a smaller staff means we can more specifically target projects we think will change the way people see and use the tool. Our developers are some of the best in the world and we all work close with the community to provide something everyone can use to solve difficult problems in a clever way.
Maltego is regularly shown at ‘IT security’ conferences such as Blackhat & Defcon, and many others – if not by us then by other members of the community. From a law enforcement perspective the Maltego workshops are always a favourite at conferences like FIRST, DCC and UE.
The company does not involve itself in conventional means of advertising and therefore we have no sales people, no marketing people, no glossies, no white-papers and most importantly no ads.
