Delivering Protection That Doesn’t Wait for Detection, Glasswall Desktop Freedom Enables Organizations to Trust Every File
London, EN, March 17, 2022 — Glasswall, a global leader in Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology, today announced the availability of Glasswall Desktop Freedom, a freemium version of its market-leading desktop CDR application. Developed to help protect organizations across both public and private sectors from the risks of file-based threats such as malware and ransomware, it delivers protection that doesn’t wait for detection so users can trust every file. The freemium version is available to users for 12 months from their initial download date.
Glasswall CDR technology offers proactive protection from file-based cybersecurity threats hidden within today’s most popular file formats. In contrast to detection-based security, such as antivirus and sandboxing that must play catch up with new threats, Glasswall Desktop Freedom instantly cleans and rebuilds every file to match its ‘known good’ industry specification – automatically removing potential risks and closing the ‘protection’ gap’ that can be up to 18 days with detection-based security.
Glasswall Desktop Freedom is available as a freemium download for Microsoft Windows 10 and 11, and organizations to analyse, sanitise and protect up to 20 files per day, with a maximum file size of 5MB. Sanitization can be applied across a range of the most widely used file and document types, including Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as Adobe PDF. Users can upgrade from Glasswall Desktop Freedom to unlock additional features and protection capacity by purchasing a license from Glasswall’s range of Desktop CDR products.
The download organizations offers a quick and easy way to sanitize files from the safety of the user’s computer and secure network infrastructure. Designed to be simple to deploy and use, with easy drag and drop functionality to ensure every document entering the organization is safe without sacrificing productivity. The solution also offers users an offline file processing and sanitization option, enabling them to clean and rebuild files without sending them outside of established boundaries.
Glasswall CDR has been developed for a variety of use cases, including zero-day threat defense, sanitizing new files entering the organization, as a solution for legacy file clean-up, and to protect against threats contained in website downloads and uploads. After each file is processed, users are provided with a File Analysis Report, detailing the original file risk level, active content that has been removed, and objects and structures that have been repaired.
Users can also set policies for each of the supported file formats, allowing them to specify whether active content is removed from the file, allowed (left in the file), or disallowed (the file is not rebuilt). It can also interact with files on removable media such as a USB drive or memory card.
“At this time of heightened concern around the cyber defenses of organizations in every sector, Glasswall is offering this freemium solution to help better protect against one of the most common and successful cyber attack strategies – the use of files and documents,” explained Danny Lopez , CEO of Glasswall. “It will also help IT and security teams to evaluate and understand the major impact CDR can have on their ability to deliver proactive protection and address zero-day vulnerabilities.”
