Outside In File ID

Outside In File ID employs a proprietary algorithm to identify file types without using unreliable file extensions or mime types. It has long been a critical component of Outside In Technology but is now available as a separate SDK. The technology is particularly useful at the start of a workflow when dealing with unknown data, in security applications, and anytime the format of a file needs to be quickly and accurately identified.

  • IDs 500+ file types; flags others as unknown and sends message back to requesting application
  • Designed for high-throughput, server environments
  • Available for Windows, Linux, Unix and Solaris
