Magnet OUTRIDER Android Triage (Beta) Available Now!

The sheer number of mobile devices that law enforcement agencies must analyze can be overwhelming, particularly in cases that involve multiple suspects or victims. To speed up investigations, it is essential to triage mobile devices to help determine what devices contain the most critical evidence and prioritize those devices for analysis.

This is one of the reasons we created Magnet OUTRIDER—an ultra-easy to use triage tool designed to maximize the speed and simplicity of identifying actionable evidence in the field or in the lab. Since its inception in 2019, OUTRIDER has been used to find actionable evidence fast by quickly triaging Mac and Windows computers and external drives. In this latest release, we’re excited to now offer triage support for mobile devices!

Save valuable time in the field or in the lab by using Magnet OUTRIDER to quickly scan Android devices to uncover critical data.

Magnet OUTRIDER users can quickly and easily scan Android (12+) devices, in the field or in the lab and collect the data below without the use of a custom agent APK used by most tools:

• Account and user artifacts
• Third-party applications
• Recently used apps
• Device ID
• Full list of contacts – deleted, settings, raw
• Call logs


Quick Scans on the Front Line

An important feature of OUTRIDER Android Triage is its ability to achieve content collection from Android devices without the use of a custom agent APK that is used by most tools. This allows for a much less intrusive process as no custom agent will need to be added to the requested permissions, nor will it be caching information on the local device before sending it back to the host PC. Magnet OUTRIDER makes a minimal footprint on the device and since it does not need to cache anything locally, it will not be impacted by running out of space when caching information during collection.

Keyword Search

Using keywords, OUTRIDER can ingest NCMEC CyberTips, identifying matches found on the device(s) being scanned and flag illicit content. With the Android Triage feature, you have the option to scan the entire device or select the specific data you want to scan using keywords. Once your scan is complete, you can filter your data even further by using keywords that are relevant to your case, helping you find evidence quickly.

Saving Time in the Lab

OUTRIDER can be used in the lab to quickly scan multiple devices at the same time, creating separate reports for each device, helping investigators allocate resources efficiently by focusing on the devices that are most likely to yield relevant evidence. OUTRIDER is compatible with Magnet AXIOM, Magnet AUTOMATE, and other third-party forensic tools that can be used to analyze evidence further, making OUTRIDER a valuable addition to your lab’s digital forensic toolkit.
