Magnet IEF End of Sale Announcement
On July 1, 2021, Magnet Forensics will stop selling licenses of Magnet IEF and IEF modules. As a result of the overwhelming adoption of AXIOM by customers around the world, and the technical limits of the aging IEF platform, Magnet announces the 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.
As IEF is a valued tool, you may need to continue using it after July 1, 2021. With that in mind, Magnet Forensics will continue to support IEF customers who choose not to upgrade, via a 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.
