Magnet Forensics Introduces Magnet AUTOMATE Enterprise

New solution will automate evidence recovery and processing, keep cyber investigations running 24/7/365 to reduce recovery time

Magnet Forensics recently announced the release of Magnet AUTOMATE Enterprise, a solution that is transforming how organizations respond to security events by automating and accelerating cybersecurity investigations.

Leveraging automation technology, Magnet AUTOMATE Enterprise synchronizes detection and incident response solutions to immediately trigger investigations, automates basic and repetitive tasks and enables forensic analysts to simultaneously recover and process evidence from multiple endpoints. This approach reduces the time enterprises need to respond to and recover from cybersecurity incidents.

“Cybercriminals have placed enterprises squarely in their sights and are increasing the volume and complexity of their attacks in order to exploit valuable intellectual property and other resources for their personal gain,” said Adam Belsher, chief executive officer of Magnet Forensics. “With Magnet AUTOMATE Enterprise, businesses can rapidly respond to ransomware, business email compromise, insider threats and other security incidents with newfound efficiency that will save hours of operational downtime, accelerate recovery and increase cyber resilience.”

It takes only minutes, not hours, for cybercriminals to penetrate the defenses of enterprises. According to Microsoft, some ransomware attacks are completed in under 45 minutes. Once access is gained, ransomware requires only three seconds to begin encryption. The response time to security incidents, however, is often slowed because forensic analysts need to manually launch each step of an investigation. Hours are lost as investigations stall between shifts, in evenings, on weekends and during holidays. Every additional second required to respond to a cybersecurity incident not only gives cybercriminals the opportunity to potentially steal more data, but it also increases the downtime for enterprises, which could cause monetary and reputational damages.

With Magnet AUTOMATE Enterprise, organizations can reduce the time it takes to respond to cybersecurity incidents from days to hours by:

  • Automating the basic and repetitive tasks performed by a manual user to keep investigations running 24/7/365 without human intervention
  • Enabling the integration of Endpoint Detection and Response tools and Security Information and Event Management tools with post-incident solutions to automatically trigger investigations
  • Performing simultaneous remote acquisitions to collect and process evidence from multiple computers
  • Concurrently processing evidence from computers, mobile phones, cloud storage environments such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure and communication services such as Microsoft Teams and Slack

“Magnet AUTOMATE Enterprise was purpose-built to sharply reduce the time it takes for security teams to respond to threats,” said Stephen Boyce, Magnet Forensics’ director of digital investigations, who supported and led cyber investigations for more than 10 years at public and private sector organizations such as the FBI and Unit 42 by Palo Alto Networks. “Automating the initial stages of cybersecurity investigations will make security operations more efficient, allow analysts to recover evidence faster than they ever could and permit them to focus on analysis so that they can get answers to stakeholders as quickly as possible.”

Just like your current holiday shopping for last minute presents a lot of the good stuff has gone off the shelves already. You reach to the back and find the toy nobody really wanted but it’s the thought that counts, you stare down at Si and Desi’s Holiday Special 2022 podcast. 

Please join these two as they lament over the year that was, discuss all the things they didn’t do but promise they will do them next year, query whether putting a NAS in the storage of a roller door is a good idea, and finally arrive at what they’re looking forward to bringing you in the new year.
