4 Reasons to Use Queued Remote Collections in Magnet AXIOM Cyber

Streamline your investigations with queued remote collections of endpoints.

We recognize that time is always at a premium in the world of digital forensics. Which is why we are excited to announce the addition of queued collection in AXIOM Cyber.

With the addition of queued collection, AXIOM Cyber streamlines the efficiency of your collection workflow, giving you time back in your day to focus on analyzing and closing investigations.

Queued remote collections also ensure that hardware is being used to its full capacity, and not sitting idle even outside of work hours. Getting you to the evidence you need as quickly as possible.

Here are four ways queued remote collections can save time in your workflow:

  1. Set it and forget it collection of up to 15 endpoints
  2. Maintain momentum even when you lose a connection
  3. Collection window isn’t limited to your availability
  4. One agent configuration for multiple endpoints

To see queued collections in action, watch this video where Steve Gemperle from our Forensic Consultant team provides an overview of how to use this new feature.

1. Set It and Forget It Collections of up to 15 Endpoints

Once you have specified the endpoints, AXIOM Cyber will automatically progress through the collections with no need for additional input. The result is that your time isn’t spent manually initiating collections and monitoring the connection status, freeing you up to focus on other priorities while AXIOM Cyber takes care of collecting the data.

2. Maintain Momentum Even When You Lose a Connection

Prior to running the collection, you configure how AXIOM Cyber should proceed if an endpoint is unavailable or loses the connection. You can specify how long to wait, the number or retries as well as when to skip or re-prioritizing an endpoint to the bottom of the queue. When an endpoint isn’t available, your collection process can still progress. Gone are the days (and nights) when an offline endpoint eats up valuable collection time.

3. Collection Window Isn’t Limited to Your Availability

Queued collection also opens the window of opportunity to collect from endpoints in different time zones or usage patterns. No more chasing a connection into the early hours of the morning. AXIOM Cyber can be run 24/7 to ensure you don’t miss your opportunity to gather the necessary artifacts.

4. One Agent Configuration for Multiple Endpoints

Each queued remote collection uses a single agent configuration that can be deployed to all of your targets, providing consistent parameters for your data, and simplifying the setup process. And when the collection is completed, all of the data is consolidated into a single case to streamline your processing and analysis.
