OPSWAT protects critical infrastructure (CIP). Their goal is to eliminate malware and zero-day attacks. They believe that every file and every device poses a threat. Threats must be addressed at all locations at all times—at entry, at exit, and at rest. Their products focus on threat prevention and process creation for secure data transfer and safe device access. The result is productive systems that minimize risk of compromise. That’s why 98% of U.S. nuclear power facilities trust OPSWAT for cybersecurity and compliance.

Key Products

MetaDefender Core enables users to integrate advanced malware prevention and detection capabilities into their existing IT solutions and infrastructure for better handling common attack vectors: securing web portals from malicious file upload attacks, augmenting cybersecurity products, and developing user’s own malware analysis systems.

MetaDefender is a comprehensive cybersecurity platform for preventing and detecting advanced cybersecurity threats across multiple data channels.

MetaDefender Kiosk accepts multiple form factors, including CD/DVD, 3.5″ diskettes, flash memory cards, mobile devices, and USBs—even when encrypted. Once inserted, MetaDefender Kiosk immediately scans for malware, vulnerabilities, and sensitive data. Suspicious files can be sanitized. Sensitive files can be redacted.

For users who prefer a Linux operating system the L-Series is a perfect fit. For users who prefer to work with Windows, our K-Series kiosks are the right choice.

MetaDefender Email Gateway Security has introduced some key capabilities to move email protection from the basic to a higher level of effectiveness, to the advanced security posture. Our solution enables organizations to better protect themself against sophisticated attacks, including sub-zero and zero-day exploits, along with the malware commonly used today.

MetaDefender ICAP Server protects systems and users by inspecting every file traveling through the user’s network. Every file is scanned for malware and vulnerabilities. With custom policies and workflows, suspicious files can be blocked or deeply sanitized. Sensitive information is blocked, removed or redacted before leaving your network. All files are remediated, before they are accessible to the end user. MetaDefender ICAP Server is a plug-and-play solution to protect a network against malicious internet content.

MetaDefender Vault

Transferring files into and out of any networked environment exposes systems in that environment to breach and infection. Portable and removable media are often used to conduct these transfers, bypassing security protocols. MetaDefender Vault is a secure file storage and retrieval solution that protects critical data and keeps threats at bay. It provides a multi-tiered approval process and detailed audit log for data transfers within an organization.

MetaDefender Drive is the protection that these systems need. It is a secure firmware bootable USB used for assessing malware, vulnerabilities, and sensitive data in any USB bootable system. MetaDefender Drive uses the system’s inherent resources (CPU and RAM) to process the boot partitions and all files on the internal drives. It has also been optimized to lower its footprint for resource constrained devices often found in critical infrastructure like laptops as low as 1G RAM and 1 CPU.

Any company that has transient assets or ships pre-installed systems to internal or external clients needs the protection of MetaDefender Drive. Any entity that uses only one vendor antimalware and heuristics engine is placing their company at risk. MetaDefender Drive is shipped with up to five separate vendor engines for analysis and identification of malware, vulnerabilities, country of origin, and data loss protection.

Secure your Enterprise Data Storage

Enterprise storage providers like Dell, Amazon (AWS), Microsoft (Azure, OneDrive, SharePoint Online, Teams), Google (GCP, Google Drive), Box, and Dropbox have embraced digital transformation and provide both cloud-based and on-premises services. These hybrid solutions are globally adopted but have resulted in an increased attack surface that puts organizations at risk.

Sensitive and confidential private information can be stolen or shared accidentally – resulting in potential compliance violations and fines.

Employees may accidentally share documents with Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or confidential content with unauthorized recipients which might violate privacy laws and regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, PCI-DSS, FINRA, and GDP. This can result in significant fines and penalties and incalculable reputational loss.

MetaDefender Cloud provides enterprise malware researchers, incident response teams, and technology providers with comprehensive APIs to leverage advanced threat detection and prevention technologies.

Using their REST API, organizations can easily add cloud-based detection and prevention of cybersecurity threats using deep content disarm and reconstruction (Deep CDR) and multi scanning with 20+ anti-malware engines. Their “Trust no file” philosophy led them to create a cloud platform dedicated to securing organizations against file-based attacks.

Central Management allows users to track and manage multiple MetaDefender products from one location. From a centralized console, users can perform global operations such as view managed anti-malware engines, manage virus definition and engine updates, and check licensing status.

NAC Solution

The value of their MetaAccess NAC solution is simply this—by ensuring that every network connection and endpoint device is visible, allowed or blocked appropriately in real-time, the threat associated with security incidents can be reduced substantially. Don’t risk an organization’s data and reputation by exposing it – instead ensure that the security of a network, constituents’ personal information, and intellectual property remains intact.


NetWall USG provides access to real-time OT data and enables secure data transfer to the OT environment without compromising the security and integrity of the critical production systems.
