Magnet Forensics, the global leader in digital investigation software, is continuing its commitment to assisting its partners in global policing to uphold justice and protect vulnerable populations by becoming a member of the WePROTECT Global Alliance (WPGA) — a group dedicated to ending online child sexual exploitation and abuse.

“WePROTECT are doing extremely important work in the global fight to eradicate child sexual exploitation online,” said Magnet Forensics’ Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Jad Saliba. “Combating these heinous crimes against children have been a motivating factor for the team at Magnet Forensics since our founding and we look forward to partnering with WePROTECT Global Alliance members to improve national and global investigations that ultimately lead to a safer world for children.”

Joining a consortium of likeminded members, including 98 governments, 41 global technology companies, and 44 leading civil society organizations, Magnet Forensics will bring its expertise in the development of digital forensics technologies and training curriculum to the fold. The company has developed tools and features in their flagship product, Magnet AXIOM, specifically created to support police agencies in their investigations of creation and distribution of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) and to ensure the preservation of officer wellness when reviewing evidence related to these horrific crimes.

“Magnet Forensics is a trusted technology partner to global police agencies, ensuring they have the tools they require to investigate cybercrimes. Their vital work contributes  to the protection of children and other vulnerable populations around the world,” said Iain Drennan, Executive Director of the WePROTECT Global Alliance. “We look forward to collaborating with Magnet Forensics and all WPGA members to get the strategies and tools in place to achieve our common mission of eradicating child sexual exploitation and abuse online.”
