File Guard

Organisations of all sizes every day are becoming more in tune with the realisation that malware causes significant losses. Malware comes in many forms and is often disguised and intended to disarm and defraud. Trying to determine the most malicious or dangerous forms of malware is extremely difficult. Tactics such as phishing and ransomware mixed with social engineering can be extremely damaging to your brand’s image and data loss. These threats are on the rise and are typically delivered via email, as a low-cost delivery mechanism for cyber criminals. No matter how files are delivered, we need to approach security differently for managing the risks inherent in files.

Why choose FileGuard

Remove threat of malware in business documents

Whether you are accepting documents from untrusted or trusted parties, ACDS’ File Guard removes active content from files where malware often is hidden, to protect from known threats and zero-day exploits.

Who would use this?
File Guard strips out the active content from files where malware is often hidden and converts it to a different file format, and then converts it back to the original one with minimal loss. This can be deployed across specific user groups, such as the claims department responding to incoming requests or insurance claims from customers, or the whole organisation.

For companies with a low tolerance for discrepancies, the conventional method of flagging suspicious attachments and placing them in quarantine until further investigation, is difficult to operate within specific SLA agreements with customers and requires significant resources on the security team to analyse flagged traffic. File Guard provides that extra layer of defence against malicious code.
