Malware protection solutions have historically relied upon a combination of firm firewalls and antivirus systems to stop malware. Cyber security legacy systems provide a significant layer of threat protection for secure networks. however, they are limited in their ability to protect and insolate users exclusively from known threats.

Antivirus software require a comprehensive database of malware definitions, which requires constant updates to decrease the impact of malware. As a direct consequence, these systems fail to provide` any level of security for unknown or yet defined malware types actively seeking to compromise your security systems.

That’s where CDR comes in.

Content Disarm and Reconstruction or CDR, is proving to be the next crucial part in the cyber security equation.

How is CDR’s approach different than traditional malware protection?

1) CDR is focused on prevention.

Antivirus software focuses on identifying, and potentially quarantine corrupt files to prevent further damage to your network. disarms malware before the threat can bring harm to your secure data. Traditional methods of malware protection rely upon a perpetually increasing database of known malware types that requires constant updating to provide protection. CDR can track and remove malicious code, files, and attachments in a range of formats before they impact your internal infrastructure without the need for a specific definition database. Without the infiltration of malware the need to detect them has less consequence.

While detection is key to stopping malware, it does little to stop malware from entering your network in the first place, that’s where CDR fills the gap. Whereas antivirus or firewall is your network's first lines of defense, CDR provides the shield before the malware has a chance to cause problems.

2) Sanitization provides security

Antivirus software is designed to detect and block predefined malicious elements and give an assessment of the potential damage after the fact. CDR technology does not determine or detect malware functionality. Rather it sanitizes and neutralizes all components within the file or attachment that are not approved within the system definitions and policies. By sanitizing the file before it is accessed corporate network perimeter can't be impacted by the malicious content within.

The process eliminates all malicious elements while preserving non-corrupt files entering the system. This process ensures all relevant and secure content remains without the need for constant definition updates or retroactive cleanup.

3) CDR is Military-grade technology, developed to meet the evolving threats of the digital battlefield

CDR has its foundations in military cyber security units. The technology was developed to prevent known cyber risk and before they cause and vital data loss. In the process, CDR produces a secure file ready for use within the secure network. The military developed CDR technology to avoid many of the limiting elements of legacy systems. CDR systems are:

  • Signatureless
  • Transparent user experience
  • Provides more robust protection capabilities than traditional antivirus or sandbox-based systems

What added value does CDR give to SMB?

SME’s consistently face weakness in their security infrastructure due to financial constraints of the systems they can implement and lack of knowledge. CDR services built for SMBs such as FileWall, stands to bridge this gap. Providing an off the shelf, and now economically viable email security system which prevents malware rather than cleaning up after the fact.

CDR intuitively neutralizes and sanitizes malicious files without having to access and manage the damage they cause. With its zero-deployment process, CDR systems provide a significant barrier for malware instantly andoften working in consort with any number of legacy systems already in use, adding an additional level of protection to your business.

When available for SMB, CDR products can vastly improve cyber security with virtually no admin time or additional employee training needed.
