Content Disarm & Reconstruction (CDR) definition in Cybersecurity

Content Disarm & Reconstruction (CDR) is a security technology that removes potentially malicious code from files. Unlike malware analysis, CDR does not attempt to detect or identify malware. Instead, it assumes all files could be malicious and rebuilds files using only the known safe elements. This process ensures that any malware is removed, while still allowing the harmless content to be accessed.
