A platform is a software application that supports the full scope or majority of the investigations process; an all-in-one solution. In addition, platforms can be expanded with so-called plug-ins or transforms.
A product is a software application designed to implement one or more steps of the investigations process. It aims to simplify a specific part of this process, such as gathering social media or darknet data.
A plug-in is a software tool that expands a product with specific functionality or an additional dataset.
