- How It Works
Avanan protects your email and other applications from malware. Whether it is through file sharing services like OneDrive and ShareFile, or messaging services like Slack and Skype for Business, there are countless ways malware can permeate your cloud. Avanan scans your entire cloud environment for malware—every message, file, and application.
Securing against malware in the cloud is a battle that must be fought on multiple fronts. Since no single tool can block all types of malware, Avanan implements a multilayer strategy that includes an antivirus scanning, malware sandboxing, and dynamic analysis through a self-teaching AI powered algorithm that directly detects malicious behavior and quarantines files in all your cloud applications before the threat has a chance to spread.
With Avanan you are not just scanning for malware with a single tool. Our platform utilizes several malware scanning tools from multiple security vendors to ensure nothing will get through.
Using the Avanan platform you can easily test different malware detection tools side by side, and see their catch rates in your live environment. Select the malware tools that work best for your organization. We are constantly evaluating and adding new security tools and making them available to you, so you can secure against the malware of tomorrow.
Avanan’s file sanitization will replace the original file with a sanitized version of the file, maintaining its content and format but removing any harmful macros and binary resources.
