File Upload Security

Protect Against Malicious File Uploads

File uploads are essential for user productivity, group collaboration, and application services. However, this functionality represents a significant security risk since cybercriminals can compromise your servers or your entire system by uploading malicious files.

  • Can you trust every file uploaded into your web applications?
  • Do you trust every file or installer downloaded by your staff?
  • Are cybercriminals attempting to upload malicious content to penetrate your environment and steal data?
  • Do you have a process for evaluating suspicious files and detecting sensitive data leakage?

Traditional detection mechanisms are insufficient, and integrating multiple solutions is costly and time-consuming. Enterprises need a robust layer of protection between uploaded files and their network.

“With OPSWAT’s Deep CDR, Upwork is able to prevent 100% of zero-day file attacks, compared to only 70% blocked by standard AV. All files with active objects are sanitized. 75% of files are processed and ready in less than a second and 99% in less than six seconds.”

How We Can Help

File Upload Security Assessment

Have the experts of OPSWAT's Professional Services quickly assess your File Upload security readiness. We tailor the evaluation to your organization’s specific needs based on our proven methodology, then provide a detailed analysis report with follow up discussion and recommendations.

Top-Notch Malware Detection and Prevention

Many enterprises scan with only a single anti-malware engine. Industry best practices recommend scanning with as many engines as possible. OPSWAT’s Multiscanning technology scans every file with over 30 leading anti-malware engines, resulting in nearly 100% detection rates.

Zero-Day and Advanced Malware Prevention

Zero-day attacks, advanced persistent threats (APT), sophisticated malware can be hidden in innocuous files and bypass traditional anti-virus solutions. Suspicious files need to be sanitized before reaching your network and being accessed by end-users. OPSWAT’s Deep Content Disarm and Reconstruction (Deep CDR) technology swiftly sanitizes over 90 common file types, outputting clean and usable files. 

Sensitive Data Leakage Prevention

To achieve comprehensive malware and data loss protection, many enterprises integrate multiple systems. OPSWAT gives enterprises powerful control over cybersecurity through a single platform. This results in a higher ROI, higher adoption, lower overhead, and fewer trained professionals needed to oversee complex systems.

Assess Vulnerabilities Before Deployment

Numerous organizations are exposed to attacks leveraging vulnerabilities. Uploaded files can trigger vulnerabilities in broken libraries/ applications. OPSWAT’s File-based Vulnerability Assessment scan and analyze binaries and installers uploaded through your website to detect known application vulnerabilities before installation and deployment.

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, detailed reporting capabilities, and help meet requirements in the OWASP guidelines.

Over 1,500 organizations use OPSWAT for cybersecurity and compliance.
