Magnet Forensics launches Connections for Magnet AXIOM
Visually map the story of a file or artifact – how it was downloaded, shared, uploaded, and more
HERNDON, Va. — Magnet Forensics, a global leader in developing digital investigation software for smartphone, cloud, and computer examinations, today released Magnet AXIOM 1.2 with Connections – a new feature that simplifies the discovery and visualization of relationships between files and artifacts and their activity.
Magnet AXIOM is the most comprehensive, integrated digital investigation platform for uncovering and analyzing digital evidence. The new Connections feature leverages AXIOM’s ability to pull cloud data, smartphone data, and computer data into a single case file to identify key pieces of evidence and connect them to devices, suspects and other artifacts.
“The volume of data in each investigation continues to grow. This creates issues for teams who are trying to wade through all the digital evidence, making sense of it for everyone else involved in the case,” said Jad Saliba, CTO and Founder at Magnet Forensics. “Magnet Forensics is dedicated to helping our customers narrow results quickly and credibly. Connections in Magnet AXIOM will help reduce case backlog, make their findings even more defensible, and find more correlations in the evidence.”
“Connections gives examiners a way to discover and view the relationships between artifacts and files, and between evidence sources,” said Geoff MacGillivray, Vice President of Product Management at Magnet Forensics. “We know our customers need to help a lot of other people understand the story the evidence is telling. Connections is a way to map correlations and evidence activity that is credible and relatable.”
Additionally, investigative teams will be able to use Connections to:
- Discover relevant “secondary” pieces of evidence
- Learn where evidence came from
- See where evidence is currently located
- Discover how evidence was shared – transfers, emails, texts, etc.
- See who evidence was shared with
- Map out communications between contacts
- Prove attribution through key OS artifact integration
Magnet Forensics also announced the launch of Magnet AXIOM Cloud today for recovery and analysis of cloud service and social network data that can be seamlessly integrated with smartphone and computer data. (Magnet AXIOM Cloud Now Available for Data Extraction and Analysis)
