MetaDefender API- Advanced Threat Protection Platform

Enterprise can no longer rely on detection-centric security systems to adequately protect valuable assets, as zero-hour malware has learned to bypass these defense pipelines. You need to take additional precautions to combat advanced targeted attacks.

MetaDefender Core integrates advanced malware protection and detection capabilities into existing IT solutions and infrastructure to better handle various common attack vectors, including protecting web portals from malicious file uploads, strengthening security products, and developing user-centric malware analysis systems.

Product Features

  • Multiscanning: Integrates over 32 antivirus engines and offers flexible suite options. Actively detects over 99% of malware threats through methods such as signature-based detection, heuristics, and machine learning.
  • File-Based Vulnerability Scanning: Scans and analyzes binary and installation files to detect known application vulnerabilities before execution on endpoint devices (including IoT devices).
  • Over 200 File Transformation Options: Rebuilds files into their actual file types or simplifies them into less complex formats while maintaining file availability and integrity.
  • Customizable Workflows: Establishes customized workflows for multiscanning and deep content disarm and reconstruction, allowing customization of file processing order and procedures.
