Improved Magnet.AI Results for Short Videos

We made exciting improvements to the analysis capabilities of Magnet.AI on short videos! These enhancements significantly improve the accuracy of the media classifiers for short videos under 2 minutes in length. After internal testing, we saw an improvement of ~70% in media classifiers identified over AXIOM Cyber 7.6.

Magnet.AI helps you to cut through the noise, surfacing relevant videos quickly for further analysis. You can analyze videos for matches on specific items such as documents (cards and IDs), handwriting, human faces, hands, money, screen captures, and documents (paper), among several more.

Due to the wide range of item classifications available, you can use Magnet.AI for several investigations such as HR investigations ( harassment, bullying, and policy violations), fraud, data exfiltration, and IP theft.

New Memory Artifact added to Comae Integration for Malware Investigations

This new memory artifact added to the Comae integration in AXIOM Cyber, Windows Executive Object Callbacks, gives examiners another checkpoint on the system to understand whether anything malicious, such as malware, was installed.

Windows Executive Object Callbacks are a list of functions called when the operating system actions various tasks like opening files, creating processes, creating threads, accessing the registry, and more. When malware executes on a system, it will add its own function to this list. If you find the function in code that is non-Microsoft signed code, then it can be considered highly suspicious. Malware that typically uses this technique is likely to be a rootkit.

To learn more about the integration of Comae for memory analysis, read our blog “Comae Memory Analysis Capabilities Integrated Into Magnet AXIOM Cyber.”

Signed Windows Agent for Reliable Remote Collections

One of the methods by which modern antivirus solutions detect malicious agents or files is by checking for a signed certificate with a digital signature from a trusted entity. The file may be deemed potentially malicious if a signed certificate is missing. An alert will then be triggered, or the file will be quarantined until an analyst can verify whether it’s a threat or a false positive. To ensure you can easily and reliably collect from Windows endpoints, AXIOM Cyber’s remote acquire agent is now signed to avoid potential false positives and subsequent disruptions to your investigation.
