6. Data Sanitization (CDR)

Overview

MetaDefender Cloud allows users to leverage our data sanitization (Content Disarm and Reconstruction) technology by providing an extensive REST API.

Through our API, you will be able to use data sanitization (CDR) to strip out embedded objects in document files. Some targeted attacks may not be detected by traditional anti-malware engines, which is why data sanitization should be performed on document files. The CDR process provides an extra level of insurance against zero-day attacks without affecting the usability of the files. MetaDefender Cloud leverages the MetaDefender Core Workflow Engine for the data sanitization process.
