New Artifacts — There is more support for recovering RAW-type pictures in several known formats (3fr, dng, erf, iiq, kdc, nef, pef) and new support for Musical.ly, an app that has come under scrutiny for its popularity with young children (and subsequently the possibility of grooming.)

Binary Keyword Search Without Artifacts — Artifacts no longer need to be selected to run a file system keyword search, providing a faster alternative.

Chat Threads Integrated Into Reports — Examiners can provide a clear report to non-technical stakeholders containing reconstructed chat threads, making it easier to follow suspect’s conversations.

Customers can find out more about what’s included in AXIOM 1.0.9 within the release notes found on the Customer Portal.
