Positive Selection
Technology

Introducing a whole new approach to file security – one that removes all possible threats without needing to search for them.

We’ve Been Approaching File Security All Wrong

For decades, we’ve relied on predictive analytics to detect and block weaponized files. But predicting threats based on historical data is by definition imperfect. Even 99% accuracy guarantees 100% chance of attack.

To be fully protected we can’t just improve our predictions or our detection. We need an entirely new approach.

Positive Selection:

Keeping only what belongs instead of searching for what doesn’t

Unlike detection-based file security solutions that scan for suspicious elements and block some malicious files, Positive Selection singles out only the safe elements of each file, ensuring every file that enters your organization is 100% safe.

The

Positive Selection Process

Step 1

Unknown file is received

*Example file type: Word Document

Step 2

Dissect file into content, templates, objects

Extract the content, text and layout;
Process any embedded object;
Analyze content directory;

Step 3

Rebuild the content on top of safe file templates

Replace with a safe pre-set element;
Re-package the file

Step 4

Deliver a 100% safe file

  • Step 1

    Unknown file is received

  • Step 2

    Dissect file into content, templates, objects

  • Step 3

    Rebuild the content on top of safe file templates

  • Step 4

    Deliver a 100% safe file

*Example file type: Word Document
Content

document.xml

The main part which contains the text, the content and the layout etc.

Replace with a safe pre-set element

oleObject.bin

embedded file inside the WordX (for example, pdf, exe, Excel etx)

Process any embedded object

[Content_Types].xml

A document can contain several media types inside like images, themes, word art, etc. The [Content_Types].xml contains information about such media types present in the document.

Analyze content directory

app.xml

metadata such as: number of pages, words, characters etc

core.xml

metadata such as: creator, last modified user, last modified date

Replace with a safe pre-set element

Container

Re-package the file

Benefits

Complete security
across all files

Outperforms predictive detection-based methods, guaranteeing 100% file safety

Peace & quiet for security teams

Maximizes productivity with zero interruption to business processes

Clear visibility into threat elimination

Runs at sub-second latency and minimal TCO

We know files.

In an ever-changing threat landscape, today’s solutions simply aren’t enough. NGAVs can’t keep up with undisclosed threats and zero-day exploits, while sandboxes aren’t securing us from even basic threats. With our deep understanding in file composition and weaponization, we developed an entirely new approach to file security. One that doesn’t just block any threat it could find – it eliminates threats from entering in the first place. With Votiro, files simply don’t pose a threat to your business anymore.
