how a hospital maintained remote customer relations at times of covid-19 lock-down

Delliotte Digital in collaboration with Sasa Software and Assuta Medical Centers developed a GateScanner to Salesforce connector enabling transparent file security for the medical organization’s CRM.

The Challenge

Receiving documents from customers is critical for every organization, and more so at times of pandemic and lock-downs. However, it is also a source of concern, since file-based attacks including ransomware, zero Days, exploits, and other threats, evade existing detection-based technologies. Assuta Medical Centers, the largest privately-owned healthcare system in Israel, uses to manage its customer relations. In the time of COVID-19 more and more services rely on remote communication with data sharing. Assuta hospital sought a way to apply their GateScanner security tools to their cloud-based CRM. The problem was that Salesforce currently does not provide a built-in capability to ensure the safety of documents uploaded into the CRM.  This is a significant security risk to Salesforce users since malicious content can be delivered through multiple routes, exposing the entire organization to vulnerabilities. 

The Solution  

GateScanner® Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) connector to Salesforceensures every file delivered to the cloud-based CRM is safe.  GateScanner combines highly optimized Multi-AV and NextGen Detection technologies to pre-filter known threats and prevents undetectable attacks using proprietary file disarm, transforming every file into a neutralized (harmless) copy, protecting against weaponized content that has never been seen before.

how an insurance company enabled secure file sharing through their online service portal

A leading Israeli financial services company with over 4,000 employees & traded on TASE, required a secure method to enable customers, investors, insurance agents and other stake-holders to upload and retrieve files from their web-based service portal without compromising network security and with minimal impact on day-to-day business operations.

The Solution

Files are securely uploaded via a web portal into a file vault.  Files are automatically scanned by GateScanner® Application Server.  Selected files are sent to sandbox inspection via GateScanner External Tools Integration.  The secure files are saved in the corporate data center, and available for retrieval. 


  • Communications with external parties is an essential part of the customer’s business flow. GateScanner achieved the customer’s a non-compromising requirement for uninterrupted productivity, volume of files received, and demand for minimal latency.
  • GateScanner provides enhanced protection against known threats, and dramatically reduces exposure to sophisticated and targeted cyber-attacks by disarming files.
  • Solution is easily managed, receiving centralized daily updates, with centralized auditing of activities.


  • Users upload files to a web based portal, transferring files to a secure vault (CyberArk).
  • Files undergo deep scanning for known threats with multiple True Type Engines and Multiple AV engines. Select files undergo Sandbox (Fortinet) inspection via external tools connector. Infected and suspicious files are blocked.
  • Files undergo additional disarming according to a designated profile.
  • The neutralized files are safely introduced into the customer’s data center.
  • The secure files are now available for retrieval from the customer’s web portal.

how a major healthcare provider averted a ransomware attack

Assuta Medical Centers is Israel’s largest private healthcare provider, with 4 hospitals, ambulatory centers, servicing over 1 million patients annually, performing over 92,000 surgeries and 6,000 IVF treatments per year. The client was aware of increasing rates of attempted cyber-attacks, and wanted to dramatically improve email security, as well as prevent malicious attacks via browsing.

The Solution

Assuta deployed multiple GateScanner® solutions (Mail, Secure Browsing).  With email and browsing accounting for over 90% of malicious attacks, the solution dramatically reduced Assuta’s exposure to potential cyber-attacks.  Since all emails and files are disarmed, the solution reduces exposure to potential employee negligence, greatly leveraging their extensive employee security awareness training. 


Tamir Ronen, CISO of Assuta Medical Centers testified, “In recent months, we have been the target of several ransomware attacks, including the notorious ‘Petya’ strain.  Fortunately, GateScanner prevented these kind of attacks, protecting us from being exposed to system downtime and data breaches. With Sasa Software’s solutions we feel much more secured even from unknown and undetectable malicious attacks.”
