WEBINAR: Add more depth to your defense:
Maximize malware detection by scanning data with multiple antivirus engines

Wednesday December 12, 2012 TIME: 2:00pm ET/ 11:00am ET


Antivirus programs are a valid part of a defense-in-depth security architecture. However, no single antivirus program can stop 100% of malware. Is there a way to improve antivirus malware detection rates, even for zero day threats?

OPSWAT has dramatically increased the effectiveness of antivirus scanning by combining 20 or more distinct antivirus engines into one system. By using Metascan to scan files, you harness the unique capabilities of multiple antivirus products simultaneously operating in a single solution. Metascan is a server application with a local and network programming interface and a variety of fully incorporated and licensed antivirus engines that allows customers to use multiple engine scanning technology in their security architecture. Through highly flexible APIs and ready to use clients, we provide the customer with numerous options for integrating Metascan into existing or custom built security systems.

Join Thomas Chimento, Sr. Product Manager from OPSWAT, to learn how Metascan is being used to catch malware moving across security domains, stored on files servers or uploaded to web servers, and to protect critical infrastructure facilities, identify false positives in commercial software, and aid in computer forensics.

What Attendees will learn:

  • How and why malware has changed over the past few decades
  • The inherent limitations of antivirus programs in protecting against malware
  • How a multi-scanning solution can be used to mitigated these limitations
