How to Prevent Evasive File-Based Threats 

How to prevent evasive file-based threats

In the age of rampant security threats, the ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape demands continuous adaptation and innovation. Attacks continue to rise, the associated costs are reaching an all-time high, and cybercriminals are developing increasingly sophisticated attacks. Zero-day threats have become increasingly prevalent, and signature-based detection methods no longer provide the level of protection needed to counter the enemy who is now always at the gates. 

Votiro addresses these challenges with a Detect, Disarm, and Analyze philosophy and an innovative content disarm and reconstruction (CDR) technology at its core. In a recent webinar, Votiro Senior Sales Engineer, Seth Hammerman, shared insights into the company’s game-changing approach to tackling modern cyber threats.

“There’s no amount of machine learning or artificial intelligence that can detect a weaponized file that’s never been seen before, and that’s why we developed our proprietary content disarm and reconstruction technology.”

Tackling Zero-Day Threats and Emphasizing CDR

Traditional signature-based detection methods struggle with identifying and counteracting zero-day threats, which exploit previously unknown vulnerabilities in software or hardware. Traditional antivirus and sandbox solutions fail to detect and prevent these threats. Votiro addresses these challenges by developing its proprietary CDR technology and proactively securing files and documents against advanced cyber attacks.

“When it comes to how we deal with zero-day weaponized files coming into your network, it’s nothing that’s ever been seen before. So, you know, there’s no frame of reference, there’s no virus signature that you’ll identify the attack from.”

Introducing Votiro’s Content Disarm and Reconstruction Technology

Votiro’s approach revolves around content disarm and reconstruction, which sanitizes files and documents by removing potentially malicious elements while preserving their functionality and integrity. The CDR technology disassembles incoming files, examines their components for known and unknown threats, and reconstructs them into clean, safe-to-use versions.

“Our method doesn’t look for anything that’s wrong; it looks for everything that’s right, and it rebuilds that file into a new file, which then gets sent on to the recipient.”
