Adding and Updating YARA Rules From Git Repositories

With over 300,000 new instances of malware being detected every day, organizations and antivirus tools can’t keep pace with cybersecurity threats. YARA provides a platform for the cybersecurity community to work together and identify the latest malware threats.

To help keep your YARA rules current with the latest versions, the option to paste a YARA rules Git repository link into AXIOM Cyber was implemented to add all of the rules in that repository automatically. Once you add a YARA Git repository to your set of rules in AXIOM Cyber, you can prompt a sync to the repository at any time to update the rules and add the latest additions.

Initiate Processing of Mobile Images from a VeraKey

VeraKey is a forensic solution that enables consent-based, full file system data extractions from iOS and Android devices. The combination of AXIOM Cyber and VeraKey gets you the most evidence so you can quickly and easily work through investigations.

As part of the continued integration between AXIOM Cyber and VeraKey, developed by Grayshift, Magnet Forensics has added an integration that enables VeraKey devices to initiate the processing of mobile images in AXIOM Cyber. This new feature will help to speed up your mobile workflows by automatically downloading the mobile image to AXIOM Cyber, eliminating previously required steps and manual touchpoints.

With this new integration, VeraKey users can choose to have AXIOM Cyber automatically process complete filesystem extractions. Once the image is downloaded and validated on the AXIOM Cyber system, it will be removed from the VeraKey, freeing up hard drive space for additional acquisitions.

Saving Custom Filters

While no two cases are the same, there are often similar starting points or approaches to getting started with a case. To help you work as efficiently as possible, you can save filter sets for later use for similar case types. Many case types can require the analysis of the same file locations or keywords, so readily available filters can save valuable time preparing your data for review and analysis.

You can share many of these filter combinations among your team to ensure a consistent investigation approach, which can be especially beneficial for onboarding new members to the forensics team.
