Griffeye and Magnet Forensics Announce Strategic Partnership to Support Child Exploitation Investigations
December 14, 2015 (Orlando, FL, USA) – Griffeye and Magnet Forensics today announced their partnership at the 2015 Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Conference. The companies have collaborated to develop an integration between Griffeye Analyze DI and Magnet IEF. This integration enables forensics examiners that use both Griffeye Analyze DI and Magnet IEF to export pictures and videos recovered by IEF to a VICS OData JSON file which can be easily imported into Griffeye Analyze DI.
This partnership allows forensic examiners to combine their use of Griffeye Analyze DI and Magnet IEF in an integrated workflow model that makes best use of the unique capabilities of these two industry leading software solutions.
“Griffeye and Magnet Forensics share a similar mindset, which is to focus on the user. By partnering with Magnet Forensics and leveraging already existing standards in the VICS OData format, we are able to provide a smooth workflow between Magnet IEF and Analyze DI. In essence, users can seamlessly move data between both tools – meaning it’s easy to use the right tool for the job,” said Johann Hofmann, Director and Head of Griffeye.
