Glasswall Embedded Engine

Industry-leading CDR file protection deployed across an organization’s new and existing business applications.

Your existing security 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.

The Glasswall Embedded Engine:
Industry-leading file protection

Embedded Engine:
Industry-leading zero-trust
file protection

Zero-trust file protection by the Glasswall Embedded Engine is different. Instead of looking for malicious content, our advanced CDR (Content Disarm and Reconstruction) process treats all files as untrusted, validating, rebuilding and cleaning each one against their manufacturers ‘known-good’ specification.

The Glasswall Embedded Engine allows organizations to embed the power of Glasswall CDR, via a software development kit (SDK) which includes an API, with new and existing application deployments. Once integrated, any files the engine encounters are processed in accordance with user configurable security preferences that allow security teams to shape their security policy to match their organizations risk appetite.

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.
