Spotlight On: Glasswall CDR Use Cases Cloud Native Integrations

Jun 30, 2021 | Thought leadership

In this new blog series, we’ll be exploring a variety of use cases where Glasswall Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) Platform can enable organizations to benefit from instant protection against file-based threats. We believe in offering a highly-scalable CDR portfolio to suit a wide variety of requirements, so you can apply it to virtually any implementation. First up is our approach to cloud native integrations.

Let’s start with some context. According to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), “cloud native technologies empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments such as public, private, and hybrid clouds.” As such, it’s now an approach to software development and architecture that’s central to the current and future plans of organizations everywhere.

The Glasswall CDR platform is a cloud native, open architecture solution that’s infinitely scalable so you’re not locked into proprietary technologies or service providers. Our open architecture uses Compliant Kubernetes so you can spin up CDR clusters to suit your needs, providing you ultimate scale on demand.  

Integration is refreshingly easy – we follow API-first, standards compliant design with integration connectors free of charge as open source plug-ins.  Just as we’re able to deploy the Glasswall CDR platform to hosted environments for our customers, we believe you should be able to use Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) script to deploy the solution into any hosting providers environment, whether that is public cloud, private cloud and everything in-between.



How It Works


Glasswall CDR technology instantly cleans and rebuilds files to match their known good manufacturer’s specification – automatically removing potential threats. This simple approach ensures every file in your organization is safe, without sacrificing productivity.
