Glasswall CDR Platform

Industry-leading Content Disarm and Reconstruction out-of-the-box – enabling security teams to quickly and easily protect their organization against file-based threats

Existing security solutions leave critical data at risk

It is common practice for security teams to deploy detection-based cybersecurity solutions, such as antivirus software and sandboxes, to protect their organization against file-based threats. However, this reliance on detection means no matter how complex a security solution may be, it can still only protect against what it has observed or seen before.

The Glasswall CDR Platform:
out-of-the-box zero-trust file protection

Zero-trust file protection by the Glasswall Platform is different. Instead of looking for malicious content, our advanced CDR (Content Disarm and Reconstruction) process treats all files as untrusted, validating, rebuilding and cleaning each one against their manufacturers ‘known-good’ specification.

The Glasswall cloud-native CDR Platform provides security teams with out-of-the-box file protection capabilities. Built on a Kubernetes architecture, it provides organizations with protection that can scale infinitely to meet demand. The Glasswall CDR Platform’s OpenAPI specification compliant design provides developer-centric web services, while open source connectors provide easy on-premises and cloud integrations.

  • 85+ supported file formats and counting

CDR Platform APIs

Synchronous API

Our Synchronous API endpoints enable security teams to present file analysis and rebuild requests to the Glasswall CDR Platform – typically securing files in under a second. In addition, the API facilitates policy management actions – enabling security teams to match the processing of a files components with their organizations risk appetite.
Synchronous API documentation

Asynchronous API

The Asynchronous API enables security teams to present and respond to multiple file analysis requests for the Glasswall CDR Platform. The APIs ability to handle concurrent operations and non-blocking I/O allows the CDR Platform to manage resources and respond to multiple requests concurrently – enabling the user to continue at their own convenience, eliminating the requirement to wait for file processing. 
Asynchronous API documentation

Policy Management API

The Policy Management API gives security teams the capability to configure content management policies to match their organizations risk appetite, allowing them to govern the treatment of files and their contents during the CDR process. Users are able to create, update, delete or reset content management policies for the Glasswall CDR Platform.  
Policy Management API documentation

License Management API

This API facilitates the management of licenses for the Glasswall CDR Platform. It performs 3 main tasks:
1 – Enables the insertion of a new license certification
2 – Returns a description of all currently installed licenses
3 – Enables the deletion of a currently installed license

Best-in-class file-based protection from Glasswall

Glasswall is the market leader for Content Disarm and Reconstruction. Our CDR technology utilizes Kubernetes architecture to provide an infinitely scalable platform that helps organizations to comply with initiatives such as the NCSC’s Pattern for Safely Importing Data, the NSA’s Raise the Bar Initiative and the NIST Risk Management framework by the US Department of Commerce.

How we do it better:

  • Complete file analysis – giving users transparency into file non-conformance with industry specifications
  • Complete file protection – threats removed and files returned to known-good specifications
  • Content management options to shape an organization’s security policy based on risk appetite
  • True file type detection going beyond just the file extension or magic number

Industry-leading performance:

Cluster configuration assumes specific memory and compute allocations for containers. Production performance will ways depend on size and complexities of real world files. Configurations can be optimised to favour throughput or file processing speeds.

20 business files ranging from 17 MB to 0.05 MB in size
  • File types include: PowerPoint, Video, Excel, Word, Image, PDF, Audio
  • Mean file size = 3.74 MB
  • Median file size = 0.64 MB
  • 5 Engines per node
  • 8 virtual cores
  • 28 GB Memory
  • Request concurrency to availability of resource is 1:1
