Solution

Centersource determined that Deep File Inspection technology based on CDR (content disarm and reconstruction) algorithms should be added as an advanced security layer to their platform and chose to deploy NetFolder. Files sanitized by NetFolder provided a fully functioning and malware-free format to Centersource within a few seconds, without any impact on data accessibility or system latency.

Key takeaway

Vendors with cloud-based business applications should use the latest and most robust technologies when it comes to securing their platforms. In many cases, these platforms store sensitive files and are vulnerable to file—based attacks. NetFolder provides an advanced security layer utilizing CDR and deep file inspection to prevent malware intrusion on a highly granular level.
