CDR Industry


Zero-trust file protection for managed security service providers and their clients

Glasswall CDR is the most secure way to protect your clients

Glasswall CDR (Content Disarm and Reconstruction) provides zero-day threat protection that antivirus solutions can’t keep up with. Glasswall proactively rebuilds every file to a safe and compliant standard – automatically removing potential threats.

Our patented process is trusted globally by intelligence agencies, leading cloud service providers, financial services and more. By adding Glasswall CDR to your service offering your customers have access to a best-in-class file security solution that can meet NCDSMO ‘Raise the bar’ and the NCSC’s guidelines for file security.

Serve more customers with no additional headcount

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.

Security teams can embed our cloud-native CDR engine across their infrastructure, utilizing either an out-of-the-box CDR platform, which comes ready to implement with its own UI and reporting dashboards. Alternatively for organizations that want to build Glasswall CDR into their existing systems, our embedded SDK enables teams to implement zero-trust file protection into their software applications and network deployments.

Deploy CDR anywhere documents are in motion or at rest.

Our CDR technology can be simply, and quickly deployed anywhere documents are in motion, or at rest. Bolstering security and reducing the reliance on detection-based practices for uploads portals, firewalls, cloud migrations and more.

Glasswall’s Kubernetes-based architecture provides unrivalled file protection capabilities on-demand and at scale, ensuring you can meet your clients’ file security requirements.

The Glasswall API endpoints are provided as standard, to ensure that integration is as friction-less as possible.

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

There is no longer the need for organizations to rely on detection-based solutions to provide protection against malicious content uploaded to their internal networks, via websites or upload portals.

Glasswall CDR can be implemented at various points within the upload process – ensuring that all files uploaded to an organizations network are secured by our unrivalled zero-trust CDR file protection capabilities.

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.

Our Glasswall-Palo Alto Networks Firewall plug-in provides an additional layer of protection against file-based threats to the regular Palo Alto Networks Firewall.

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.
