OPSWAT, Inc., provider of cyber security tools that keep critical infrastructure, government, and enterprise customers safe from malware, announced that it has entered into a channel partnership with emt Distribution, a leading software distributor in the Australia–New Zealand region. emt Distribution will have reselling rights for the OPSWAT Metadefender product group.
Together, emt Distribution and OPSWAT will help Australian and New Zealand organizations avoid data breaches and block malware attacks. emt Distribution will also work to raise awareness of threat mitigation strategies such as Content Disarm and Reconstruction (data sanitization, or CDR), and to provide sales and marketing support for OPSWAT in the ANZ region. This partnership will provide emt Distribution resellers with the opportunity to sell Metadefender, the best threat detection and prevention platform, to customers in the manufacturing, healthcare, education, technology, and energy industries, in addition to government organizations.
Metadefender is a cyber security platform that provides protection against both known and unknown threats with data sanitization (CDR), vulnerability detection, and multi-scanning technology. Because of its flexible APIs, Metadefender can be easily deployed in enterprise, telecom, and government networks, and it is offered in diverse packaging options.
These three main Metadefender technologies protect organizations from risks associated with infected files entering through peripheral devices, such as USB drives and CDs/DVDs, or through email, web proxies, or file uploads. Data sanitization removes exploitable content from potentially malicious files with the files' original functionality maintained. The Metadefender Vulnerability Engine quickly identifies and classifies millions of known application vulnerabilities. Metadefender multi-scanning packages include up to 30 anti-malware engines from vendors such as AVG, Kaspersky, McAfee, Symantec, and others.
Scott Hagenus, Chief Marketing Officer at emt Distribution, said, "We are extremely excited to include OPSWAT's stable of multi-anti-malware, vulnerability detection, and Content Disarm and Reconstruction technologies to our portfolio. The Metadefender platform covers a multitude of protection scenarios, augmenting existing investment in security and introducing new, effective levels of protection that have not been considered previously. We identified very early on that OPSWAT's solutions are complementary in nature to our partners' existing client base, unique in the level of protection and diversity of security use cases and tackling issues clients have not been able to resolve in the past.
"Implementing Metadefender and the associated defense solutions from OPSWAT can actually help to reduce the number of security vendors an organization needs to engage with. OPSWAT is a true leader in this space. emt Distribution is committed to bringing solutions to the ANZ market that offer leadership in their area of expertise, add real security value, address the harder problems to tackle with a minimum of complexity, and, simply stated, just work. OPSWAT's solutions fit this bill perfectly."
Tory Pitts, Director of Global Channel Partner Programs at OPSWAT, said, "emt Distribution is a leading distributor in the ANZ region, and we are tremendously excited to partner with them to bring our solutions to organizations in Australia and New Zealand. We aim to help government agencies, manufacturing plants, healthcare companies, and critical infrastructure organizations around the world keep their data secure with our groundbreaking technology, and value-added distributors like emt Distribution are essential for making that happen."
