About NetClean

Data shows that 1 in 500 employees use their company device to access and consume CSAM, an illicit behaviour exposing businesses to threats such as malware, blackmailing, extortion, P2P networks and the darknet. The risk is real and growing. NetClean's software is a vital part of every organisation’s security portfolio and a strong complement to other risk mitigation solutions, effectively keeping corporate IT environments safe, protecting the company, its assets, employees, and brand.

NetClean Impact and its solutions ProActive and ProTective are developed for computers, mobile devices, and cloud storage. They are used in more than 110 countries by both multi-national enterprises and the public sector and are installed at over 1.5 million endpoints.

Arrow and NetClean

Through the partnership between NetClean and Arrow, we streamline the customer purchasing process and make it easier than ever to incorporate the NetClean product range into customers’ existing IT security portfolio. NetClean's scalable products are integrated with trusted global technology platforms such as VMware Carbon Black, VMware Workspace One, and Splunk Enterprise Security and can easily be packaged as an MSP or SOC offering.


NetClean product offering

NetClean Impact offers comprehensive real-time protection of work computers, mobile devices and cloud storage from child sexual abuse material – all in one package. Using advanced and secure detection methods such as robust and binary hashing and URL blocking, the software suite is effortless and operates discreetly in the background on the device / endpoint with a minimal performance impact. Built on experience and engineered for impact, NetClean’s software plugs seamlessly into existing security setups and platforms, providing broad coverage with flexible license options and a fit-for-purpose pricing model.

NetClean Impact and Carbon Black

Through the interoperability with VMware Carbon Black, it is possible to conduct more advanced and thorough investigations of incidents reported by NetClean ProActive. The powerful capabilities of Carbon Black can provide additional and vital case info, such as extended data and analysis of the user and endpoint that triggered the incident, thus aiding both the internal investigation and collaboration with law enforcement.

NetClean Impact and Workspace ONE

By using VMware Workspace ONE, it is easy to deploy, install and manage NetClean’s detection and blocking solutions on any device in a secure and controlled way. VMware Workspace ONE enables global reach and continuous maintenance of endpoints and devices through one platform, even to a remote and dispersed workforce. It also provides control and visibility across the entire stack of devices, and easy handling of updates and lifecycle asset management.

Through the integration of NetClean solutions to VMware Workspace ONE, the customer has easy access to endpoints and devices, and can be sure to have the latest blocking lists and signature updates to detect and block child sexual abuse material.
