Detection-based solutions leave financial data at risk

Banking and finance organizations transfer critical and sensitive data across secure networks. In doing so, they not only face a rapidly changing cyber-threat landscape but also ever-changing compulsory auditing guidelines and legislation.

Many banking and finance firms rely on detection-based solutions, such as anti-virus software and sandboxes, to provide protection against file-based threats that target sensitive data and critical networks. 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 before.

Speed of protection is vital for organizations to operate effectively, but detection-based solutions can take significant time to handle file-based threats, causing unwanted disruption to important workflows and customer interactions.

The Solution:

Zero-trust file protection

with Glasswall CDR

Zero-trust file protection by Glasswall is different. Instead of looking for malicious content, our patented CDR process treats all files as untrusted — validating, rebuilding and cleaning each file to a safe and compliant standard — automatically removing potential threats.

With Glasswall CDR, banking and finance firms can protect their critical networks against file-based threats, prepare for regulatory audits and comply with international data privacy regulations faster and more securely than ever before.

CDR is an important layer in any organization’s defense and content protection strategies… We expect CDR will ultimately be considered a best practice.”

Use cases

Secure file uploads against file-based threats

It is common practice for organizations that operate in the financial sector to rely on the use of upload portals to ingest sensitive information into their networks. While file uploads help organizations to comply with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations, they can provide a way for bad actors to deliver malicious, file-based content

Security teams can implement Glasswall CDR at either the application, gateway or storage level – providing our patented zero-trust CDR file protection for all files uploaded via a portal.

Faster and cleaner regulatory audits

Zero-trust file protection from Glasswall CDR helps financial organizations comply with auditors such as the SEC and FINRA. Organizations can evidence that their networks are protected against file-based threats with the most effective solution available, while Glasswall CDR also provides organizations with threat intelligence data so that they can quickly and easily provide evidence for any specific auditor requests.

Supercharge your firewall protection

Next generation firewalls are effective in protecting against most attack vectors, but there is a protection gap. File-based threats such as malware and ransomware can go undetected when the security filter is not aware of the structure of the document.

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.
