Magnet OUTRIDER 3.4: Bring Your Own Device and Dark Mode

We’re excited to announce the availability of Magnet OUTRIDER 3.4! In this release, we’re introducing a new licensing upgrade where you can bring your own device for use of OUTRIDER, instead of relying on a pre-loaded dongle from Magnet Forensics. This new licensing model will provide faster turnaround times, more device flexibility, and ease of use when using OUTRIDER. This release also includes Dark Mode!

Benefits of New Licensing Model

Since its launch, we’ve been refining and improving Magnet OUTRIDER to better serve the needs of our customers. This licensing upgrade will help make OUTRIDER easier to use for agencies and their sub-agencies by offering flexibility, faster turnaround times, and improved security.

Previously, OUTRIDER was offered on a Magnet dongle that had limited space. As storage capacities increase across digital devices, it’s important that we offer customers the ability to use their own device that can support larger scans that may include 4+ terabytes of data. In order to achieve all the benefits of OUTRIDER, we recommend using a Samsung T7 portable SSD.

With this new bring-your-own-device delivery model, we’re excited to reduce time-to-use for our customers. Instead of waiting for our team to ship an OUTRIDER pre-installed dongle, you can now create your own device and start using your full license of OUTRIDER immediately by downloading OUTRIDER to your device.

We also expect this to help make it easier for sub-agencies to get set up and use OUTRIDER, as they won’t have to wait for pre-loaded dongles from their parent agencies before they get started with OUTRIDER. With this new release, a parent agency can now provide the download to their sub-agencies, who can then register their own device for use, eliminating the need to physically pick up, or be mailed, their pre-loaded dongle.

In this video, our team walks through what the new changes look like and how to take action to upgrade your license and share it with your sub-agencies.

We hope this upgrade will make OUTRIDER easier to use, eliminating some of the operational and administrative support required to use OUTRIDER.

Dark Mode

When you spend hours investigating digital evidence every day, we want to make it more comfortable for you to work in OUTRIDER. That’s why we’ve introduced Dark Mode to OUTRIDER—to give you the option for what mode reduces strain while working through your investigations.

Over the course of the year ahead, we will continue to evolve OUTRIDER and improve our customer experience for you.
