Magnet Forensics to Launch New Digital Investigation Platform

New end-to-end forensics solution will find even more evidence and enable more efficient investigative workflows

Today at the ICAC Task Force 2016 National Law Enforcement Training on Child Exploitation, Magnet Forensics, a global leader in the development of digital forensic software, unveiled Magnet AXIOM, its new digital investigation platform.

Launching in Spring 2016, AXIOM will enable forensics professionals to seamlessly acquire, analyze, and share digital evidence from computers, smartphones, and tablets.Digital forensics examiners are dealing with heavier workloads, larger volumes of data and a growing number of devices that need to be processed in an investigation, which creates case backlogs and slower response times. AXIOM is a digital investigation platform that allows examiners to work their cases more efficiently, by automating and integrating tasks, and simplifying the user interface.

“The prevention of crimes against children has long been a focus for Magnet Forensics and me, personally,” said Jad Saliba, Magnet Forensics Founder and CTO. “The ICAC conference is an ideal opportunity for us to announce Magnet AXIOM, which will help forensics examiners find more evidence, dive deeper into the data and to work the case in the smartest, most efficient way. We have brought many powerful processing and in-depth analysis capabilities into an intuitive and easy-to-use solution. We wanted our clients in the ICAC community to be among the first to see this new platform in action.”

Magnet Forensics tools are trusted and used by more than 3,000 agencies in 92 countries to assist in their investigations. AXIOM builds on Magnet IEF, a leading artifact processing tool that parses and carves for hundreds of artifact types. AXIOM extends beyond IEF, adding in-depth analysis tools with reporting tools that make it simple to share findings with stakeholders, regardless of forensic experience level.
