MetaDefender is a cyber security platform for preventing and detecting cyber security threats on multiple data channels.
MetaDefender protects organizations from cyber security threats in data that originates from a variety of sources, such as web, email, portable media, and endpoints. The MetaDefender philosophy is:
Organizations have difficulty tracking and securing all data transfer channels that expose them to security threats, especially large enterprises with thousands of employees and contractors. Data transfer channels, such as file uploads, portable media devices, and email attachments, all have the potential to carry targeted attacks that can damage an organization’s reputation, financial standing, customer relationships, and for critical infrastructure, sensitive equipment and the facility itself.
Most cyber security solutions rely upon detection as their core protective function. MetaDefender data sanitization does not rely on detection. It assumes all files could be infected and rebuilds their content using a secure and efficient process. It supports more than 30 file types, and outputs safe and usable files. Data sanitization is extremely effective in preventing targeted attacks, ransomware, and other types of known and unknown malware threats.
MetaDefender multi-scanning uses multiple anti-malware engines to provide superior detection rates of known and unknown threats and deliver extremely fast malware outbreak prevention. MetaDefender customers can simultaneously leverage the combined threat prevention capabilities of more than 30 anti-malware engines using both signature heuristic scanning and machine learning capabilities.
All applications contain vulnerabilities of different degrees of severity that threat actors can exploit. Our vulnerability assessment of binaries and installers detects known vulnerabilities within files and application vulnerabilities in software programs before they are installed on endpoint devices, including IoT devices. We support vulnerability detection for over 1 million files and over 20,000 applications.
MetaDefender data loss prevention (DLP) can help prevent potential data breaches and regulatory compliance violations by detecting and blocking sensitive data in files and emails, including credit card numbers and social security numbers. MetaDefender DLP supports a wide range of file types, including Microsoft Office and PDF.
Customers can implement our industry-leading data sanitization, multi-scanning, and vulnerability assessment technology through either our MetaDefender Cloud service or by deploying MetaDefender software solutions within their own environment, including air-gappe
