Glasswall Desktop

Easy to install, drag and drop file protection that works offline, in remote and isolated environments.

Your existing security solutions deployments are leaving you 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.

Glasswall Desktop: drag and drop
zero-trust file protection

Glasswall Desktop provides zero-trust file protection in an easy to install application. Instead of looking for malicious content, our advanced CDR (Content Disarm and Reconstruction) treats all files as untrusted, validating, rebuilding and cleaning each file to a safe and compliant standard — automatically removing potential threats.

Glasswall Desktop is an easy-to-use application that can be installed locally on a user’s device. There is no need for any special training – users simply drag and drop files on-demand into the Desktop interface, ensuring only safe, clean, and fully functioning files enter an organization.

Enable employees to work safely with any file

Instantly disarm threats in files from unknown sources (e.g. a customer’s USB drive)

Give users immediate feedback on original risk level of documents, as well as details on how Glasswall made them safe.

Maintain isolation of air-gapped networks with protection that doesn’t rely on the internet or updates

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.
