DIgital transformation, accelerated by COVID-19, is fueling expansion in rich new functionality for web and mobile applications. 'New digital processes rely on the creation, transfer, and sharing of rich content as files or 'binary ' objects that embody all the components needed to deliver the right experience to the recipient. A massive new problem is that applications now need to support thousands of different file formats that define the specific structures necessary to render that experience, even when they are simply classified as documents, archives, images or multimedia. Unfortunately these same files can be leveraged by attackers who insert malware into these objects, which often goes undetected by traditional security.

In this session, we'll discuss:

- How complex file structures are defined, and how high risk document, multimedia, and archive formats are commonly exploited within businesses today

- How new digital business processes such as web and mobile app file uploads can unknowing deliver infected files into your organization

- How you can leverage file analysis technologies within your new digital platforms to securely enable your digital business, and

- How these technologies can be applied to detect destructive objects and accelerate your response actions without impacting the business.
