Email Explorer

To help investigators review, tag, and export email evidence, we are thrilled to introduce the new and highly anticipated Email Explorer in AXIOM Cyber. This view presents messages in an intuitive and familiar format that mirrors the appearance of common email platforms- complete with standard filters and search capabilities to zero in on the email evidence relevant to your investigations.  

While use of Slack and other messaging apps is on the rise, 74% of workers still rely on email as their primary source of business communication. So, it’s no wonder that a large amount of email evidence appears in most corporate investigations.  

To learn more about Email Explorer check out our new blog post.

VirusTotal Integration

AXIOM Cyber now offers integration with VirusTotal, giving you the ability to quickly check files against their database of known threats.  

The more information you have about a cyberthreat, the better equipped you are to remediate an incident and refine mitigation procedures to protect against future threats. 

Leveraging over 70 antivirus engines, VirusTotal provides information on known malicious files so that you can quickly gain insight into the history and behaviour of a threat. Any file that is checked in VirusTotal is hashed in AXIOM Cyber rather than uploaded– no other file information is submitted to VirusTotal, maintaining the anonymity of your records.

Remote Volatile Artifact Collection

In AXIOM Cyber 6.2, we’re introducing a new artifact category, volatile artifacts, which allows you to remotely collect live system information. Volatile artifacts can provide unique insights into malware behavior and anti-forensics software or other malicious activities that don’t leave easily detectable evidence trails.  

For this new artifact category, we currently support for four high value live system processes: Active Connections, ARP cache, DNS cache and Running processes, with more to come in upcoming AXIOM Cyber releases.
