Magnet Forensics AXIOM 8.0

Added features in Animated Maps

Introduced in our Axiom 7.10 release, animated map routes give you the ability to show the movements of devices in your evidence sources, providing valuable visual context for investigations and court testimony. Routes can be built using artifact data containing timestamps and location data—such as mobile and drone data—for specific time and date ranges.

This release expanded on this functionality with two additional features that increase the ease of use of animating your maps:

  • Custom pins – You can now add custom pins to your map routes, which can be labelled to help indicate important locations and add even more context to the map.

  • Track routes – When recording an animated map, you previously needed to move the map manually when following a route. In this release, we’ve added the option to have the map view automatically adjust to follow a single route animation.

Magnet Copilot improvements

The recent surge of synthetic media or deepfakes can present significant challenges in criminal investigations, and the volume of digital evidence is ever-increasing.

With Axiom 8.1, Magnet Copilot gained new features:

  • Improvements in image processing, supporting a wider range of image formats for both image QA and synthetic media. Support includes .gif, .heic, and .tiff images.

  • An image QA function that now provides a summary report of the images matching the user’s query.

Updates to Magnet Exhibit Builder

With the depth, variety, and volume of evidence in modern cases, developing engaging reports that effectively tell the story of the case for stakeholders, including those that aren’t technical, is a persistent challenge.

Magnet Exhibit Builder provides a fast and intuitive new option to elevate your digital forensic reports, combining forensic data from Axiom case files and all other external data sources using versatile word processing tools to quickly build comprehensive reports for a range of audiences.

  • Optionally choose to password-protect a report when exporting reports to PDF, adding an extra layer of security to reports that may contain sensitive material.

  • Export reports to Microsoft Word (.docx format) to enable easier and broader access and collaboration with stakeholders that don’t have a license for Exhibit Builder.

  • Choose to hide media when dragging and dropping fragments and artifacts into a report—giving greater control over the visual elements included in the content.
