News Transforms

Modified on: Mon, 26 Apr, 2021 at 11:47 AM

Overview

Browse the news based on phrase, person, company and other inputs.


Integrated with the Bing News Search API , the News Transforms allow investigators to search the web for news articles and find context relevant to the persons, companies, locations, threats, and other topics involved in an investigation.


While the News Transforms Hub item is free to use for both community and commercial users, they’re allotted different weekly quotas: CE users have a limit of 30 Transform Runs, Pro users are granted 250 Transform Runs, and Maltego Enterprise customers have a quota of 1000 Transform Runs per week. Should you require more, you can sign up for a Bing Search API v7 key via https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/bing/apis/pricing


These Transforms are especially helpful when running background checks or to quickly gather context on an investigative target.
