Spotlight On: Glasswall CDR Use Cases – Data Migration

by | Jul 26, 2021 | Thought leadership

The internet is the classic example of how information crosses multiple domains in and out of private networks. As organizations move more data to the cloud, between service providers and across on-premises infrastructure, for instance, they are exposed to potential vulnerabilities.

Trust boundaries are practically everywhere, and whenever a file crosses a boundary, organizations need to be sure threats don’t have room to hide. Glasswall CDR (Content Disarm and Reconstruction) has been designed to proactively remove threats from files moving from folder-to-folder or across a domain interface.

The Glasswall Cross Domain Plug-in provides a vital air-gap for files moving between trust boundaries, whether they’re inside the organization or across a public network. To migrate or synchronise file transfers across two or more storage locations, Glasswall CDR ensures that threats can be removed as they transition from folder-to-folder or across a domain interface.

The Glasswall CDR platform is context agnostic about how the cross domain air-gap is established. It offers multiple connectors to define how the plug-in communicates with storage repositories before passing the file to the Glasswall CDR Platform for threat removal. From Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage and Microsoft Azure Blob to FTP, HTTP and SFTP, users can easily synchronize and sanitize files across different storage types and communication protocols.

How It Works

Glasswall CDR technology instantly cleans and rebuilds files to match their known good manufacturer’s specification – automatically removing potential threats. This simple approach ensures every file in your organization is safe, without sacrificing productivity.

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.
