MetaDefender Core AMI

Protect Web Applications Deployed on AWS

To keep up with today’s digital transformation, many enterprises have been progressively built out their business in the cloud. However, this speedy deployment can bring various threats and need a robust multi-layer security program to prevent the evolving attack surface and secure applications from malware.

Most cloud providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS) have a shared responsibility model for security, where the cloud computing customers are responsible to secure their content as well as their platforms, applications, systems, and networks to deploy on the cloud. This is the very same protection they must do for their on-premise systems. 

MetaDefender Core AMI is Available on the AWS Marketplace

As an Advanced APN Technology Partner, OPSWAT is proud to offer easy deployment of MetaDefender Core AMI for organizations that host their solutions on AWS. By deploying OPSWAT’s MetaDefender Core AMI on AWS, you can protect against threats in files processed or stored on your AWS solutions.

Why should you choose MetaDefender Core AMI?

Seamless Scalability

Each MetaDefender deployment once activated will make itself available for processing within minutes. Deploying OPSWAT Central Management alongside it will further reduce the deployment time as the licensed modules and engines will be cached and ready to deploy.


By setting a health check and deploying MetaDefender in different Availability Zones with a load balancer in front of them, you can ensure uninterrupted service. Read detailed information in the AWS Deployment Guide.
