Glasswall Embedded Engine

The Glasswall Engine lies at the heart of our CDR Platform which provides a means to orchestrate analysis and protection workloads. Development teams and partners can deploy the core Glasswall Engine as an embedded component. This ensures the capabilities of the Glasswall Embedded Engine can be harnessed via an SDK to facilitate programmatic integration into appliances or software processes.

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.
