​MetaDefender ICAP Server v4.7.0 Release

Product Overview

OPSWAT MetaDefender ICAP Server is the Internet Content Adaptation Protocol (ICAP) connector to our industry-leading Deep Content Disarm and Reconstruction (Deep CDR)MultiscanningFile-Based Vulnerability AssessmentProactive Data Loss Prevention (Proactive DLP) and Threat Intelligence technologies. Designed to protect network appliances and storage devices against advanced threats in network traffic.

New In This Release

Besides minor fixes, this release focuses on the data trickling functionality.

Data trickling is designed to prevent timeouts that can sometimes be associated with patience pages. To prevent such timeouts, data trickling trickles –or transmits at a very slow rate– bytes of the original content. We call them drips to the client at the beginning of the scan. Because the ICAP Server begins serving content without waiting for the scan result, timeouts do not occur. To maintain security, delivery of the full object can be withheld until the results of the content scan have been returned (and the objects' scan verdict is not infected).

Data Trickling is Risky

As data trickling transmits bytes of the original content (even if at a very slow rate), there is always the risk, that malicious content slips through the ICAP Server.

For further details please refer to the 4.7 Data trickling section in onlinehelp.
