Email Security

Deliver Peace of Mind Without Impacting Productivity

The majority of malware continues to be initiated via email.  Links and attachments that appear safe can contain malicious content. Once accessed, malware replicates and spreads across the network.  Advanced threats can bypass many malware detection applications used by email security solutions. The two best ways to combat email-originated malware:

  • Sanitize data, to address threats before they occur.
  • Use as many malware engines as possible to increase detection rate.

Many enterprises scan with only a single anti-malware engine. Industry best practices recommend scanning with as many engines as possible. OPSWAT scans every file with over 35+ anti-malware engines, resulting in detection rates exceeding 99%.

"We use OPSWAT’s MetaDefender as one of the tools in our arsenal that protects our email users against advanced malware threats. We’ve been using the product for many years now. OPSWAT’s multi-engine scanning technology is fast, easy to integrate, and has been highly effective in our pursuit of offering the best security available to our customers. OPSWAT has been a great company to work with and I highly recommend them."

How We Can Help

In-Depth Data Reconstruction

Malicious links can easily appear trustworthy and trick the end user. Legitimate attachments with valuable data, such as a loan application, may have become corrupted. Links should be sanitized to alert the end user to their actual destination. And suspicious files should not be blocked but cleaned—so that their contents are still usable and don’t hamper productivity.  OPSWAT’s Deep Content Disarm and Reconstruction (Deep CDR) technology sanitizes over 85+ common file types, outputting clean, usable files.

Sensitive Data Control

Email is a common customer service channel for submitting forms and documents. Sensitive data, even if accidentally included—such as a social security number or other PII—may need to be redacted before consumption by the end user. OPSWAT’s Proactive Data Loss Prevention (Proactive DLP) redacts sensitive data, before it reaches the end user.

Over 1,000 organizations use OPSWAT for cybersecurity and compliance.

What We Offer

Combat Malware Adaptations

Malware continues to bypass existing defenses because cybercriminals develop threats with evolving sophistication, and enterprises deploy insufficient protection. Many security professionals allow files to enter a network after only a single anti-virus scan. Superior solutions capitalize on combining as many anti-virus engines as possible. To detect the latest threats, OPSWAT uses 35+ anti-malware engines by using signatures, heuristics, and machine learning.

Detect and Remediate Sensitive Data

Sensitive can be stolen, uploaded by mistake, or accidentally sent externally. The result can be expensive compliance fines and significant reputational damage. OPSWAT can inspect files for sensitive data and block or redact it before it reaches the end user or exits the environment.

Clean Suspicious Files

Most files include data elements that are empty or innocuous. Increasingly, attackers have exploited these vacant areas to hide malware. The process of content, disarm, and reconstruction (CDR) takes a file, cleans it, and creates a new, usable file. CDR focuses on preventing an attack before it occurs, even if the attack is hidden or unknown. OPSWAT’s Deep CDR technology is used to sanitize 85+ file types, resulting in clean, usable files.

Meet Compliance Requirements

Regulatory compliance requirements are enforced to minimize breaches and privacy violations. Meeting compliance is time consuming and can be costly—if requirements are not met. OPSWAT technologies provide compliant processes, comprehensive visibility, and detailed reporting capabilities.
