Celebrating CDR Innovation with the University of Essex

by | Oct 5, 2022 | Events

We recently attended the annual Celebration of Innovation event hosted by the University of Essex at their Colchester Campus. Bringing together up to 200 business leaders from across London and the South East with the University’s leadership, the event celebrates the University’s innovation-focused partnerships.

The University of Essex is the leading academic institution in the UK for active Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), which link talented university researchers and academics with businesses to help them grow and develop new products and services. Fast becoming the partner of choice for innovative businesses in the East of England and London, Essex has 40 active KTPs with more than £10 million secured in funding to support their delivery.

Glasswall is pleased to be among that group of innovators, and for the past year, we have been running a File Threat Index (FTI) research project with the university. The project explores the combination of Glasswall CDR’s deep file analysis capabilities with advanced AI and machine learning techniques. The resulting technology aims to provide predictive threat intelligence for digital documents, supplying reliable and immediate indications on whether a file is malicious or not. Ultimately, this will lead to faster detection of file-based malware.

“It was an excellent event, made up of interesting speakers and a wide variety of like-minded organizations who are all heavily focused on innovation,” commented Luke Robbertse, Director of Operations and Delivery at Glasswall. “As members of the KTP project, it offered some valuable insight, experience and contacts, and we look forward to continuing our cooperation with the university team.”

Raising the bar on file security

We believe people should be free to open their files without fear. To click on anything without risk of catastrophe. To use systems the way they were meant to be used. That’s why we’re raising the bar on file security at Glasswall.
