BitDefender and OPSWAT partnership now includes MetaDefender

We are pleased to announce that the well known AV vendor Bitdefender has now joined forces with OPSWAT to be part of the commercial offering for MetaDefender Cloud!

Bitdefender has always been part of MetaDefender on-premise and the free version of MetaDefender Cloud. With this new partnership, Bitdefender now protects Commercial Cloud customers with its unique set of malware detection capabilities. MetaDefender Commercial Cloud now runs 22 engines, and customers have already started seeing Bitdefender in the list of engines when doing either multiscanning or hash lookups.

Founded in 2001, Bitdefender is a Romanian cybersecurity company with headquarters in Bucharest. A global cybersecurity leader protecting over 500 million systems across 150 countries, Bitdefender has one of the best AV engines on the market. A recent study by the independent analysis firm AV-comparatives has placed Bitdefender in the top spot in two major categories of comprehensive testing. 

At OPSWAT, we believe in strong win-win relationships with our partners. We permit free use of MetaDefender Cloud to enable prospective customers to evaluate it but strictly limit the amount of usage. Commercial usage of MetaDefender Cloud requires purchase by the customer of a subscription from OPSWAT. Commercial subscriptions, in turn, generate royalty payments from OPSWAT to engine supplier partners. Currently, free users see 39 engines when analyzing multiscanning results, while commercial customers currently have access to only 22 engines, both for new file scans and hash lookups. Bitdefender is now available for both existing and new customers!
