Review: Oxygen Forensic Detective From Oxygen Forensics

Wednesday, September 28, 2016 (07:27:19)
Reviewed by K. Gus Dimitrelos CEO – Cyber Forensics 360

Opening the Oxygen Forensic Detective Dongle packaging I did not expect my forensics world of 20 years and counting to change so quickly.

Magnet AXIOM 1.0.5 Helps Forensics Professionals Wade Into IoT Waters

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 (13:22:03)
AXIOM 1.0.5 Update Includes Forensics Support for Nest, Amazon Echo, Fitbit, and OnStar

Magnet Forensics has just released its latest updates for Magnet AXIOM and Magnet IEF and they include support for several Internet of Things (IoT) artifacts for Android and iOS devices.

As more and more devices and “things” become connected to the Internet (think cars, thermostats, appliances, glasses, watches, you-name-it), more data is created and digital forensics needs to keep in pace with all of these data sources.
