Threat Intelligence

The Glasswall Engine looks deep into the DNA of a document and identifies active content and broken structures that represent risk to the user that chooses to open a document. Glasswall provides unique insights into file-based threats and how risks may accumulate across your organization as a result.

Efficacy validation of other solutions in the security stack whilst benefiting from full file protection with CDR

How it works

Glasswall provides deep file analysis from its Content, Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) engine to identify potential inbound risks as part of each file inspection. Theoretical and actual risks are neutralised in milliseconds as part of the CDR process, with telemetry relating to trends being surfaced to help security teams stay on top of threats. Reputation services and Threat Feeds augment the solution to positively affirm malware that has already been sanitized by the Glasswall Engine, ensuring that security teams can understand the value being obtained from substitute solutions which promise lower efficacy.

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.
