OPSWAT partners with Webroot for enhanced threat intelligence

At OPSWAT, we are working hard on building state-of-the-art security products that organizations can rely on for protection against a wide variety of threats. Today, we are happy to announce we have partnered with Webroot to enhance our security offering for Multiscanning and IP-Domain analysis.

Webroot, an OpenText subsidiary, is an internet security company serving consumers and businesses. Their products combat today’s most complex cybersecurity challenges and are constantly anticipating how to extend the value of threat identification, prediction, and remediation to the connected world.


Webroot BrightCloud® Streaming Malware Detection Service

Streaming Malware Detection service is now part of OPSWAT's Multiscanning technology, available both in the cloud and on-premises. With advanced malware detection of polymorphic malware and zero-day exploits, the service can detect malware before it infiltrates a network, enabling users to block the files or route for further investigation.

For our on-premises solution, MetaDefender Core, the service is available as a custom engine and can be added on top of any package for enhanced malware detection. Read more about packages and custom engines on our licensing page.

Streaming Malware Detection is already available on MetaDefender Cloud in both free and commercial packages. Commercial users can now benefit from advanced malware detection capabilities from 24 anti-malware engines when opting for our cloud solution. For more details please visit the dedicated licensing page.

Enhanced Malicious IP-Domain Detection

MetaDefender Cloud offers users the capability of searching for known malicious IPs, Domains, and URLs as part of the Reputation API. We collect data from many different online sources to offer a service for exposing compromised or malicious addresses.

By integrating Webroot BrightCloud® Web Classification and Web Reputation services and Webroot BrightCloud® IP reputation service, MetaDefender Cloud now provides better detection rates by embedding a dynamic data set of millions of high-risk IP addresses, to protect users from inbound traffic from malicious IPs.

"With the uptick of polymorphic malware, it’s critical that technology providers have reliable, up-to-date threat intelligence,” said Hal Lonas, SVP and CTO for Webroot, an OpenText company. “Webroot BrightCloud Streaming Malware Detection helps businesses catch malicious files in transit before they enter the network and have the chance to spread; the solution utilizes machine learning for reliable, real-time protection that is over 500 times faster than traditional, signature-based solutions.

“We’re excited to work with a forward-looking organization like OPSWAT that understands static and list-based solutions are a thing of the past. With BrightCloud Streaming Malware Detection, OPSWAT’s customers will benefit from faster and more accurate detection of threats at the network perimeter.”
