NEW YORK, December 30, 2016 – Avanan, The Cloud Security Platform, has announced a channel partnership with OPSWAT, Inc., the leading provider of cybersecurity tools that keep critical infrastructure, government, and enterprise customers safe from malware attacks on cloud applications. The Avanan Cloud Security Platform provides the most complete suite of leading security solutions for the cloud.

release for several months, and we have seen tremendous interest from OPSWAT customers, as well as new prospects,” said Gil Friedrich, CEO of Avanan. “Both our companies believe that no single security vendor can be the best at all things, and that by combining multiple solutions, we can provide the most complete security protection possible.”Metadefender’s optimized multiple anti-malware engine and data sanitization technologies protect organizations from risks associated with infected files entering either through peripheral devices, such as USB drives and CDs/DVDs, or through network web proxies. Metadefender Core’s multi-scanning packages include up to 30 engines from vendors such as Sophos, Kaspersky, McAfee, BitDefender, and others. The Metadefender Core data sanitization offering prevents any possibility of malicious content—including zero-day threats—from executing, meticulously deconstructing and then reconstructing files in the most common formats to ensure virtually no usability is impacted.With this partnership, Avanan’s cloudified version of Metadefender Core can protect organizations from malware that might enter through their cloud-based email solutions like Outlook or Gmail; file sharing solutions such as OneDrive, Box, Amazon, or Sharefile; or other business collaboration tools such as Office365, Slack, or Salesforce.These cloud-native versions of OPSWAT’s most popular packages are only available on the Avanan platform.
