What Is Threat Removal?

In contrast to other defences, including antivirus scanners and sandboxing, it does not rely on being able to detect threats but instead transforms content to render it completely safe.

This transformation-based approach is recommended by the UK’s NCSC. It is a game changer because it delivers 100% efficacy.



The Threat Removal Process


Zero Trust Approach

Rather than identifying known malware, Threat Removal takes the data and extracts the useful information from it. 


The extracted information is transformed into an intermediary format. This advanced threat protection and ransomware prevention process makes sure no threats or attacks can reach the next stage.

The original data is stored or discarded, along with any malware – known or unknown.


Brand new data is then built in a normalised way, containing the verified information. 

The new data replicates the original data, without the threat of embedded malware and is now guaranteed to be safe.
