3.4.2 Deep Content Disarm and Reconstruction (Deep CDR)

Turning the File Sanitization feature on creates a safer version of the file by stripping it of potentially harmful content. This is done using OPSWAT’s Deep Content Disarm and Reconstruction technology.

To learn more about how to configure Deep CDR, please check the Deep CDR user guide.

Enable Deep CDR

  1. From the left-side navigation menu, go to Storage units

  4. Go to Deep CDR tab in the Remediation Actions menu

  5. Toggle File sanitization

  6. Choose how the original file should be treated after sanitization by selecting one of the three available options

    1. Keep original file - the original file will be retained as is

    2. Encrypt original file - the original file will be encrypted and retained as a backup. This is useful because later you could decrypt it and revert to the original file if needed

    3. Delete original file - the original file will be deleted and only the sanitized version will be available to users (NOTE: You will not be able to revert to the original file anymore)
