Global roadshow will showcase seamless integration of Project VIC data and Griffeye categorization into Magnet AXIOM
Magnet Forensics, a global leader in developing forensic software for smartphone and computer examinations, today announced that Magnet AXIOM, its complete digital investigation platform, will soon feature deeper integration with Griffeye and Project VIC for enhanced digital forensics analysis in child exploitation cases.
AXIOM users will soon be able to quickly add media files that have been categorized in Griffeye directly back into AXIOM for more holistic analysis and reporting. This simplified workflow will save examiners time and effort as they work to analyze and share all findings for the whole case – from categorized media files, to messages, to location and time-stamped data, to system data – with investigative teams.Media recovered from smartphones and computers is currently processed against the Project VIC hash sets in AXIOM to find known child exploitative images and content. Recovered media that was not known in the Project VIC database is exported to Griffeye Analyze DI for categorization. Once categorized, it can be difficult to pull those results back into AXIOM for reporting and sharing., Users will be able to simply import the JSON file from Griffeye and apply the categorizations, tags, and comments directly back to their evidence in AXIOM.
“It is incredibly important to Magnet Forensics that we work with the top organizations in digital forensics to help our customers find more evidence and uncover the truth. Working with a best-in-class media categorization and analysis tool like Griffeye’s Analyze DI and an organization like Project VIC that is diligently working to ensure investigators have a standard for identifying child exploitative content is a perfect opportunity to greatly benefit AXIOM customers,” said Jad Saliba, Founder and CTO of Magnet Forensics.
“There is a great need in the digital forensics space for a collaborative and integrated approach that helps teams move through their cases quickly and to make the most of their forensics toolkit investments,” said Johann Hofmann, Director and Head of Griffeye. “We are thrilled that Magnet Forensics is working with us to ensure that forensics and policing professionals can integrate Griffeye analysis seamlessly into AXIOM with minimal effort, helping them to tell a complete evidence story.”
“The amount of media that can be part of a child exploitation case is growing by orders of magnitude. We need organizations to be forward-looking and proactive about working together for the greatest impact. We are proud to remain a partner with Magnet Forensics and Griffeye and are committed to finding new ways to ensure forensics professionals have access to the most robust categorized data when triaging or performing their full analysis,” said Richard W Brown, Project VIC Coordinator United States, National Association to Protect Children (Protect.org)
