Magnet AXIOM is getting faster and easier to use with each release. With AXIOM 2.7, Magnet incorporated acquisition, analysis, and reporting improvements, as well as improvements to GrayKey analysis, Magnet.AI and AXIOM Cloud. New and updated artifacts were brought, including Windows 10 mail, QQ, and Naver browser.
Windows 10 Mail
- With AXIOM 2.7, you can find a new place to get emails, by retrieving emails from Windows 10 mail.
- With AXIOM 2.7, carving algorithm was fine-tuned to discard thumbnails recovered from parsed pictures, which greatly reduces the overall number of duplicate pictures that an examiner needs to review —scan time improvements are up to 15% on evidence with heavy picture content.
- AXIOM 2.7 adds further performance improvements in three key areas: unencrypted backup scanning, imaging progress, and report creation. Also, unencrypted iOS backups or GrayKey backup images can now scan up to 40% faster (dependent on case & workstation).
- In addition to the creation of HTML reports now being up to 2.5x faster, portable cases now exclude extraneous information that can’t be reviewed — allowing for faster creation and a reduced case size.
- Physical acquisitions for computers and some mobile acquisition methods also now display progress reporting during the process to give a better idea of time remaining.
- Easier to use Magnet.AI by allowing to configure Magnet.AI scanning in AXIOM Process to take advantage of machine time and processing overnight.
- AXIOM can also now filter on deleted evidence as AXIOM 2.7 adds additional attributes to identify artifacts from deleted sources.
