Business Focus:
Glasswall Solutions Limited, a UK based company, has developed a disruptive, innovative and ground-breaking security technology which provides unique protection against document based cyber threats. The Glasswall patented technology changes the security paradigm of signature based defences, to allow only 'known good' in business documents. Unlike signature-based technologies Glasswall is able to eliminate all types of document attacks and zero-day malware. Today's advanced, targeted cyber-attacks use weaponized files in attachments as their attack vector of choice with a huge success rate. Most of these file-based threats involve hiding malware or malicious code within a common file-type, such as Word, Excel or PDF files. Despite the high level of risk, conventional security controls such as firewalls, anti-virus and more advanced dynamic network sandboxes are ineffective in dealing with these types of threats as they only identify known threats or are unsuccessful in running the exploits in the files. The security industry's attempt to defend organisations by classifying known bad e.g. signature or heuristic technology, is failing, with regular reports of document attacks. Attackers have shifted their tactics with great success, using people to perform the work of automated exploits convincing users to disable or ignore security, click links and open files. Along with little or no policy and security controls as to who can receive what attachments users unwittingly allow the installation malware or the execution of malicious scripts from the files they open, Glasswall eliminates that problem and puts the company or administrator in control. Our standards based approach is to only allow the "known good" within document and file structures. Working in real-time we ensure the security, business continuity and usability of all of inbound and outbound documents - leading to higher levels of workforce productivity, more efficient use of IT resources and increased business performance. The technology seamlessly integrates within existing Email security architectures, as an API into Web/file transfer traffic and in Data Guards and Diodes to deliver real-time, always on, protection from file-borne threats. Glasswall has expanded in the North American market in the last 18 months. Following an extensive and successful government testing process Glasswall's file inspection, regeneration and sanitization technology is now integrated into established systems integrators security solutions such as Data Guards and Diodes and is being marketed across federal, government and defence organisations. Commercially Glasswall have an established sales team covering the UK, East, West coast and Central USA targeting medium to large corporates. We are also forming a reseller network of partners with established security solutions where Glasswall provides its unique defence against document based attacks for their customers.
