True Type Detection
True Type Detection (TTD) determines a file’s type by comparing the extension associated with the file with the specifications dictated by the vendor for that file type. For example, Microsoft Corporation has specified that a file with the extension .docx is a Microsoft Word document. In order for Word to open the file correctly, the file attributes must meet specific criteria designated by Microsoft. TTD verifies the criteria set by Microsoft are met before the file is processed.
When TTD is used in the Votiro Disarmer solution and specified by the applied policy, files with content that does not match the file extension criteria can be blocked to prevent malicious content exploits.
