Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology enables users to ‘trust every file.’

LONDON and RESTON, Va. – Glasswall, a British cybersecurity company that offers instant protection against file-based threats with Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology, has today launched its Premier Partner Program. Designed to build a substantial partner ecosystem, the program is geared towards distributors, value-added resellers (VARs), managed service providers (MSPs) and system integrators (SIs) whose customers are faced with a growing range of file-based cybersecurity threats and need instant protection so they can trust every file.

With sophisticated threats mounting, it’s difficult to predict where and how an attacker evades protection, with roughly 70% of malware that is found embedded within downloaded files being of an unknown kind, providing optimal protection against file-based threats requires a more proactive approach.

In contrast to detection-based security that must play catch up with new threats, such as antivirus and sandboxing, Glasswall CDR offers proactive protection that doesn’t wait for detection. Its technology instantly cleans and rebuilds every file to match its ‘known good’ industry specification – automatically removing potential threats. This simple approach ensures every document entering the organization is safe, without sacrificing productivity

According to Gartner®1, “Content, Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) provides the highest security” to limit the risk of malware upload.” Gartner also states that “Security leaders should go beyond single anti-virus scanners to protect their backends against the upload of malicious files,” suggesting that “CDR removes all threats from uploaded files without adding significant latency and can even protect against completely new attack types”.

Glasswall partners can offer its patented CDR technology to their customers, enabling them to deliver a richer security portfolio. Delivered as a single-tier program, partners will benefit from access to comprehensive sales, marketing and technical support and training, with the ability to generate substantial margins across new business, referrals and renewals.

Premier Partner benefits include:

  • Partner Portal: Access sales and marketing help, technical support and pricing data any time from anywhere
  • Marketing development fund: Up to 10% of partners’ annual revenue target to help them market and sell the CDR solutions
  • Training: Helping partners learn everything they need to know about CDR from sales tactics to technical information in Glasswall’s Partner Academy
  • Deal registration: Through the Partner Portal, partners can let Glasswall know who they’re introducing the CDR solutions to and protect that deal from their competitors

In addition, if a partner prefers to make an introduction to Glasswall’s solutions and let the company handle the sales process, they can become a Referral Partner. They will get referral compensation with no special requirements or obligations.

Based in the U.K. and with offices in the U.S., Glasswall announced its latest £18 million funding round in November last year. Its CDR solutions have been deployed by U.S. intelligence agencies and by businesses worldwide, with the company rapidly expanding to meet global demand.

“Glasswall is on a journey of international growth and our partner ecosystem is fundamental to ensuring organizations can transform their approach to file-based security,” commented Glasswall CEO Danny Lopez. “In an era where the threats posed by malware and ransomware can result in huge financial losses, compliance failures and business disruption, CDR represents a game changer in the fight against cybercrime.”
