Votiro, a provider of Secure Data Sanitization solutions for protecting organizations against zero-day and other ongoing cyber-threats, has extended the usability of its free, cloud-based, sanitization service to include protection against spear phishing and other email-based attacks.
The existing version of Votiro’s sanitization service analyzes uploaded files for the presence of malicious code and neutralizes zero-day and unknown exploits. Votiro’s service cleans a file by scanning it with anti-virus programs and then by running an active, patent-pending process on the file, helping to eliminate the potential presence of any exploit code.
This new version also allows users to forward questionable emails to the service and runs the same scanning and active process on email attachments.
“Statistics consistently show that nearly all cyber-attacks begin with a spear phishing email that appears to be innocent, although its contents are tainted with a hidden exploit or similar advanced cyber-threats,” says Itay Glick, founder and CEO of Votiro. “Our mission is to position our customers with a security posture that automatically identifies and eliminates the growing range of unknown and ongoing cybersecurity threats. By extending our free service, we are allowing enterprises and organizations to sample the strengths and benefits of our new spear phishing protection capabilities that are being incorporated into our overall solution.”
This sanitization service is part of Votiro’s overall Secure Data Sanitization solutions. The solution automatically performs the sanitization process as a free, cloud-based service on all incoming email contents. This comprehensive process does not affect the usability of a file and can be integrated into an organization’s IT infrastructure.
