Social Links has just announced the release of its Social Links PRO integration for the popular IBM i2 Analyst's Notebook platform. Delivering the most effective and dynamic solutions using open-source intelligence (OSINT) methods, the new SL Pro integration will place the developer’s full range of powerful technologies at the users’ fingertips.

In accomplishing this integration, Social Links has become the first external developer to provide OSINT solutions for IBM, a collaboration which has culminated in the IBM i2 Analyst's Notebook platform: a product which will become available to the company’s customers in May.

Target audience

Social Links PRO for IBM’s i2 Analyst's Notebook will make a range of open-source solutions available for existing and new IBM clients including LEA (Law enforcement agencies) as well as large private companies. Social Links deeply understands the immense utility of open-source data, and how it can be harnessed to fulfill wide-ranging investigation opportunities. Yet we also appreciate that such effective tools require a stable platform to support the increasingly powerful capabilities and features.

Range of applications for the Social Links PRO for IBM i2 Analyst's Notebook:

  • Criminal Investigations
  • Cybercrime and Threat Intelligence
  • Financial Fraud
  • Incident Response
  • Journalism and Media
  • Corporate Security
  • Procurement
  • Trust and Safety
  • Compliance

Product background

The integrated solution has emerged from the already well-established technologies and methods developed by Social Links with proven effectiveness and reliable results. Expansive searches elaborated from various inputs:

  • E-mail
  • Phone number
  • Phrase
  • Name
  • Alias
  • Company
  • Cryptocurrency
  • Geolocation
  • And more

Searches based around such queries are carried out using over a thousand methods and transforms that Social Links constantly adds to within the solution as part of its ongoing product development. The implementation of these methods and technologies will allow IBM customers to use not only the internal data available on the platform, but also to collect and analyze a wealth of further information through open sources. In doing so, the user will also be utilising a culmination of vast experience in R&D development, in which genuine customer tasks have always driven design, with best practices being adopted for working with data and supporting OSINT solutions.
