New in AXIOM & AXIOM Cyber: New JSON Viewer

AXIOM 4.3 includes an all-new JSON viewer, making it much easier for you to review the contents of JSON files found within your digital evidence.

The new JSON viewer features the ability to view JSON files in an easier-to-read format, search and find the content within the JSON file, highlight searched values and expand and collapse sections of the file to zero in on important evidence.

For more information on our new JSON viewer, read this blog from Tarah Melton.

New in AXIOM Cyber: Improved Reliability of Acquiring Data from Microsoft Azure

We’ve improved the reliability of our support for downloading virtual images from Microsoft Azure. Now with AXIOM Cyber, you can more reliably process and analyze data from Azure virtual machine images.

Alan Platt, Professional Services Consultant at MSAB, discusses his experience as a former UK police officer working in digital forensics. He talks about the different levels of digital forensics capabilities within police forces and how MSAB products like XAMN and XEC Director are used by frontline officers versus lab analysts. 

The discussion covers how MSAB partners with law enforcement to develop custom workflows for mobile device acquisitions that facilitate ISO compliance. Alan explains MSAB's managed service offering, where approved MSAB staff can remotely access a customer's XEC Director server to assist with software updates and troubleshooting. He emphasizes the strict data segregation policies enforced by customers to prevent MSAB from accessing any sensitive case data.

Looking ahead, Alan mentions MSAB's new CEO and hints at some exciting developments coming down the pipeline. He spotlights recent enhancements to XEC Director's speed and database functionality for managing large estates of networked Kiosks.
