By combining the power of Cobwebs Technologies’ AI-powered open-source intelligence and our market-leading digital investigation solutions, PenLink will transform the speed and depth of insights developed across complex criminal investigations.”

According to Cobweb Technologies, it, along with PenLink will leverage their extensive network of digital intelligence to enhance the analytical capabilities of their investigation solutions.
