Magnet Forensics Announces Magnet AUTOMATE to Help Digital Forensics Labs Complete More Investigations Faster

Magnet Forensics introduces a new solution to help digital forensics labs get the most out of their digital forensics tools, reduce case backlogs and complete up to six times more cases per week.

Magnet Forensics, the global leader in digital investigation software for mobile, cloud, and computer examinations, is proud to announce Magnet AUTOMATE—an innovative new solution that allows digital forensics labs to complete investigations faster by powering a repeatable forensic workflow that minimizes downtime and maximizes efficiency.

As the amount of digital evidence continues to grow, it’s becoming impossible for the digital forensics lab to keep up. Labs need a more efficient workflow to acquire, process, and review digital evidence without drastically increasing resources or relying on outsourcing.

“We created Magnet AUTOMATE to help digital forensics labs get more out of their existing forensic tools,” says Magnet Forensics Founder & CTO, Jad Saliba. “We want to help examiners spend less time on repetitive tasks by automating clear-cut jobs like imaging and processing. By doing so, examiners can focus their efforts on challenging tasks like data analysis and evidence review.”

Magnet AUTOMATE lets labs orchestrate a repeatable workflow with Magnet AXIOM and any other commercial tool or custom script that has a command-line interface. This new standardized workflow eliminates hours of downtime between each step in the investigation, maximizes computing power, and can deliver evidence within 48 hours on every case. 

The Senior Digital Forensic Specialist for a large metropolitan UK police agency says: “Magnet AUTOMATE enables our team to deliver a guaranteed service level for all child abuse cases, according to a management-approved workflow. Because time-to-evidence is now guaranteed inside 48 hours, investigators can identify and act on relevant material quickly, examiners are freed from repetitive tasks, and our computing power is being utilized 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our team is completing more cases—in less time and at lower cost—so we can focus our efforts on the challenging areas that require our expertise.”

 “Magnet Forensics is constantly looking for new ways to help the digital forensics community get through more cases faster,” says Adam Belsher, CEO, Magnet Forensics “With Magnet AUTOMATE, we’re proud to have a solution that can help labs get through so much more case work—all while upholding precise and repeatable standards. The saving of investigative hours and their associated costs is a huge benefit to our customers and to the citizens that they serve and protect.”
