Documents and images are the vectors of choice for cybercriminals to use for malware, ransomware attacks, and malicious exploits. From Web browsing and email, to portal uploads and social media, these files are routinely embedded with known, zero-day, and even totally undetectable threats concealed in the files we use every hour of the working day.

For years, the problem with concealed malware has been addressed by trying to detect it before it reaches the target destination. However, every time a new method of detection is devised, attackers remain one step ahead, working out new ways of evading current technologies. Using everything from highly evasive exploits and steganography to polymorphic and poly-formatted files.

Detection-based defenses simply can’t keep up…

Stop The Threats of Tomorrow, Today.

If someone said, there’s a way to eliminate malware forever! It would definitely sound too good to be true, right? That’s because we’re so accustomed to detection-based solutions, that ultimately will never provide complete protection of your data.

That’s why leading cybersecurity professionals worldwide are turning their attention to prevention-based cybersecurity technologies and solutions.

Forcepoint’s Zero Trust Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology has zero reliance on detection when looking to determine if files and images contain a threat. It doesn’t try to make educated guesses as to whether some particular piece of content is intrinsically good or bad. Instead, Zero Trust CDR trusts nothing and renders everything safe, using a unique process called transformation. Defeating any potentially malicious content embedded in documents and images – even zero-day attacks.

Whatever the exploit and whatever the motive, Zero Trust CDR ensures that documents and images are entirely threat-free with no false positives

Still, sound too good to be true? Understandable, that’s why we’ve created an online version of the Zero Trust CDR Technology.

Drag and drop any file and have it transformed and ready to download completely malware-free within seconds. Try it online here.

Transform your Cyber Defence

Zero Trust CDR has been tested and proven against over 30 million viruses, and completely eliminates all malware including:

  • Zero-day exploits.
  • Ransomware attacks.
  • Sandbox evading detonation attacks.
  • Fileless malware – That takes advantage of applications to “live off the land”, never being written to disk and therefore never being seen by detection-based virus scanners.
  • Polymorphic malware.
  • Image-based malware attacks and Steganography.

If there is a threat carried or concealed in digital content, Zero Trust CDR will defeat it.

Zero Trust CDR Deployment Capabilities

Zero Trust Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) can be deployed alongside or instead of your existing defenses. Email (on-premise or directly integrated with Microsoft 365 Mail,) web, file uploads and downloads, portal protection, social, chat, and more. Including within Cross Domain Solutions or any scenario that involves accepting data from an untrusted source.

How Does it Work?

Rather than trying to detect malware, Zero Trust CDR’s transformation technology works by:

  • Extracting the valid business information from files (either discarding or storing the originals.)
  • Verifying the extracted information is well-structured and then,
  • Building a brand-new file to carry the information to its destination.

This transformation-based approach is recommended by multiple government cyber agencies because it delivers complete malware protection, every time.

See how it works in our 2 minute explainer video.
