Digital transformation is a must for today’s organizations, resulting in a migration from paper-based to digital documents. Millions of documents are now being shared among collaborators weekly and monthly—uploaded to either a web portal, customer portal (insurance or mortgage applications) or support portal (attaching files to your support ticket). At the same time, an enormous amount of effort is invested into building high-availability, fault-tolerant systems and securing them. However, file upload remains a major attack vector and far too often is not covered by traditional web application defenses.
In this recorded webcast, we cover three types of risks to web applications and how to apply a Zero Trust model to both users and the files they upload and the devices from which these uploaded files originate. Risks from:
- Threat actors who submit malicious files to gain access to the organization’s IT infrastructure.
- User who submit sensitive data in violation of an application’s terms of service.
- Inadvertent hosting and distributing malicious files uploaded by a threat actor.
Our discussion also focuses on high-performance, deterministic methods using OPSWAT solutions can help neutralize threats, known and unknown, in uploaded files. As well as, how to reduce the total cost of ownership utilizing native integrations, instead of building custom integrations or home-grown solutions.
