New in AXIOM & AXIOM Cyber: Choose the Evidence Summaries Included in Your Exports

Depending on the case and stakeholder needs, you may or may not wish to include all the available evidence summaries in your reports.

With AXIOM 4.4., you can now choose which evidence summaries to include in your HTML and PDF reports, allowing you to better tailor your reporting for your stakeholders’ needs. Even better, you can also save your summary preferences as part of any export template for even more efficient workflows!

New Evidence of Timestomping Artifact

Malware is meant to blend in and go unnoticed so that it can maintain its presence on a device. One way that bad actors try to keep their malware hidden is to manipulate the timestamps of their malicious files, a tactic known as timestomping.

With AXIOM 4.4, we’ve introduced a new Evidence of Timestomping artifact to help you detect potential timestomping. Check out this blog and how-to video from Tarah Melton for more details:

New iOS Screen Layout Artifact

Details on how a user has set up their device application icons can provide insights into how a user interacted with their device, giving you additional context for your investigation.

With our new iOS Screen Layout artifact in AXIOM 4.4, examiners now can quickly identify and report on how applications were arranged on a device.

Check out this blog from Trey Amick for more on working with the new iOS Screen Layout artifact: Recover iOS App Screen Layouts with the New iOS Home Screen Items Artifact.
