Magnet IEF End of Sale Announcement

On July 1, 2021 Magnet Forensics will stop selling licenses of Magnet IEF and IEF modules.

Since its introduction in 2009, Magnet IEF has been a popular tool within the digital forensics community. With the subsequent release of Magnet AXIOM in 2016, we’ve been proud to offer a truly complete digital investigation platform.

As a result of the overwhelming adoption of AXIOM by customers around the world, and the technical limits of the aging IEF platform, we are announcing our intention to end the sale of IEF on July 1, 2021.

We strongly recommend that if you are an existing IEF customer, you upgrade to AXIOM prior to July 1, 2021.

We understand that for some of you, IEF is a valued tool and for specific or exceptional reasons you may need to continue using after July 1, 2021. With that in mind, Magnet Forensics will continue to support IEF customers who choose not to upgrade, via our limited time Extended Life SMS Program.

The necessary resources will be assigned to maintain this special program to ensure you stay supported. As such, the cost of the Extended Life SMS will increase above current annual IEF SMS subscriptions. Please contact your Magnet Forensics representative for more info.

We are dedicated to focusing our resources on ensuring we provide the best-in-class digital forensics solution for every single customer who has transitioned from IEF to AXIOM. If you haven’t tried Magnet AXIOM yet, please visit to learn more about our complete digital investigation solution and try it for free today.
