    Article Summary

    Glasswall Halo processes files to ensure they are safe from threats. Once a file has been deconstructed and rebuilt, the application assigns a Risk Level to the original file. These risk levels explained below, provide users with a high level summary of the level of threat the original file contained.

    A low risk level means the original file did not appear to contain any threats or items that might increase risk for your environment.

    A medium risk level means the original file contained items that may be used by an attacker to compromise your environment or to expose information about the file itself. Metadata such as review comments can also be used to hide information, entering, or leaving your environment. Hyperlinks might be benign, but without adequate protection may lead the user to visit an insecure internet location and to potentially interact with a threat. 

    A high risk level means the original file contained software or executable code, that may be used by attackers to compromise your environment.
