Content Integrity Control (CIC) Module

Process files with anti-virus or data loss prevention tools

Maintain confidentiality and keep your network free of files containing malware. The Content Integrity Control module for EFT is used to send files to an antivirus software or data loss prevention (DLP) server for processing.

Maintain Confidentiality and Keep Your Network Free of Files Containing Malware

Content Integrity Control (CIC) module integrates with antivirus software and DLP (Data Loss Prevention) tools to permit or prevent file transfers based on your organization's policies, and supports compliance with PCI DSS. When the CIC Action is added to an Event Rule, any file that triggers the Event Rule is sent to an ICAP server for scanning. With the CIC module, you won’t expose your network to files containing malware, or share confidential/proprietary information.

CIC Integrated into EFT Event Rule

When a file passes the CIC scan, EFT can perform other actions on the file, such as moving the file to another location. If the file fails the scan, Event Rule processing can stop, or other actions can occur, such as sending an email notification. You can create multiple CIC profiles to send files to different tools, or to look for different ICAP status codes or text in the ICAP header or body. The results can be captured in the database to generate reports.

Control What Gets Through with CIC

Implementing EFT with CIC in your network ensures transfers are free of viruses/malware, employees are not sharing confidential/ proprietary information, no transfers contain nonpublic information, such as PHI (protected health information) and PFI (personal financial information), and helps you maintain compliance with PCI DSS requirements regarding DLP.

EFT’s CIC module uses the ICAP protocol, the industry standard for antivirus and DLP tools. Any third-party content inspection product that supports ICAP can communicate with our CIC module. The CIC module works with the following antivirus and DLP servers:


  • McAfee (VSES)
  • Kaspersky Lab
  • Sophos
  • Symantec
  • Trend Micro


  • McAfee
  • RSA
  • Symantec
  • Forcepoint (formerly Websense)
