‘File Disarmer’ supports the safe and free use of data, with full protection against unknown threats
TEL AVIV, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Votiro, a global leader in content disarm and reconstruction (CDR) technology, today announced their receipt of two awards, attesting to the company’s proven ability to proactively defend against file-borne malware. Votiro was named Best CDR Provider by the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, and also received the 2020 bronze award for Hot Security Technology of the Year by the industry’s leading information security research and advisory guide, Info Security Product Guide’s (ISPG) Global Excellence Awards.
Companies rely on the ability to share electronic files when communicating with their employees, customers and vendors. Yet today, nearly 90 percent of cyber-attacks are carried into companies through the inadvertent receipt of malicious files. Votiro’s proprietary, next-generation CDR technology disassembles a document, and then reconstructs a perfect replica of that document—leaving out viruses and malware in a fraction of a second.
“To date, Votiro’s technology has successfully processed over five billion documents—and did not allow a single breach,” said Aviv Grafi, CEO, Votiro. “Our customers no longer have to caution employees to think twice before clicking on shared documents. Votiro maintains high workforce productivity in conjunction with security, hardens networks and supports CISOs in positioning themselves as business enablers, rather than inhibitors.”
Votiro holds more patents, 16 for CDR technology, and more customers than any competitors in the category. To date, the company has over 400 customers and 1.5 million users worldwide, many of them government agencies in Japan and Singapore that have mandated the use of Votiro Disarmer. Disarmer acts as a secure file gateway for email attachments, download and transfer files, shared content and removable media, while keeping performance and functionality intact. The technology can handle complex file structures, such as embedded macros—one of the most common exploitables—as well as .zip and password protected files.
Votiro will be attending various cybersecurity industry events in the spring and summer of 2020. The team traveled to the United States in February to attend the RSA Conference, where Grafi spoke with numerous partners and customers, as well as representatives from media outlets and analyst firms. While there, he also attended the America’s Growth Capital (AGC) Information Security & Broader Technology Growth Conference. To learn more about Votiro, please visit https://votiro.com/.
