Magnet Axiom

Post Posted: Aug 10, 16 23:34

License renewal time for IEF and I see that it's now developed into a product called Axiom, with an attendant price rise.

I'd be interested in honest feedback on Axiom from those who've used it. Is it the next big thing? Or is it like when FTK went from 1.7 to 2 or EnCase from version 6 to 7?!

Thanks.

Jonathan

Why not switch to Belkasoft which has the same (and somewhere wider) feature set for much smaller price?

Axiom is kinda just skined IEF, no real extra value.
It does have a file system viewer and a registry viewer and the default IEF view where you can right click and see the artifact in different views panes. But meh Load the image into IEF then double check your findings in FTK anyways.

For non law enforcement I fell the tool is lacking as a competitor to FTK/Encase
Example I wanted to export a list of folders and the MAC for the folders but there was no possible way to do this in Axiom. while in Ftk i just select the folders and do a export file list to csv.
Also you cant do multiple keyword searches unless they updated it.
There is just alot missing to justify spending the money for it. I can go into more detail but just going of memory from now,.

I saw a demo. It has promise, but until they can get away from a physical dongle to license the product, I have no need for it. Same for IEF, unfortunately.

The most significant feature they tout is the 'traceback' capability (they call it something else, but I forget).

IEF comes laden with artifacts and hits - this traceback let's you know exactly where on the hard drive the artifact was found. Very helpful.

I tested Belkasoft Evidence Center a while back and I couldn't easily figure out where the evidence was being found; that was a show-stopper for me. If I can't explain where something came from, I'm not putting it into a report.
