Detect and block disguised file types, and report detections straight from the app

Release date: December 15th, 2023

The latest and greatest in a nutshell

In our latest product release of WithSecure Cloud Protection for Salesforce, Boulder 2.3, we provide you greater detection capabilities against disguised malicious files. We also enable you to report false positive and negative detections straight from the app. More details in the release notes

Stay ahead of the curve with:

  • In-app reporting: False positives and missed detections can now be reported instantaneously within the app.
  • Intelligent File Type Recognition: Sophisticated analysis of a file’s content bolsters defenses against covertly dangerous files.
  • License model revision: The user licenses section now mirrors our updated licensing framework for streamlined access and comprehension.
  • Expansion of data centers: With new centers in Australia and Singapore, we bring improved performance and stricter data residency control.
  • Large file scanning: Our File Protection feature has been bolstered, scanning even larger files for potential threats.
  • Government Cloud support: Extending our protective measures to Government Cloud products, ensuring that even the most sensitive operations are secured.

Intelligent File Type Recognition

Hackers disguise malware by renaming dangerous files to appear harmless—like masking an executable (.exe) as an image (.jpeg).

Advanced threat protection counters this by examining a file's actual content, not just its name, to uncover hidden dangers.

Intelligent File Type Recognition enhances detection in your Salesforce environment. It probes a file's true behavior, not just its nominal type, identifying real threats that names alone can conceal.

The in-depth analysis is conducted automatically as part of the File Protection feature—no extra configuration required.

In-app false positive and negative reporting

You can let us know right in the app if something safe is flagged or something malicious gets through.
