Light Point Security and OPSWAT together offer a comprehensive browsing security solution. With the combination of Light Point Web and Metadefender Cloud (formerly known as Metascan), browsing occurs on a remote system outside the network, and downloaded files are sanitized and analyzed with multiple anti-malware engines. By using Metadefender's data sanitization (CDR), exploitable content is removed from all downloaded files. OPSWAT's Vulnerability Engine identifies vulnerabilities in downloaded applications. Browsing and downloading are both made secure with this joint browsing isolation product.
"Metadefender...gives our users the peace of mind that their downloads are malware free, and relieves Light Point Security from the task of having to license, maintain, and continually update multiple anti-malware engines."

|Press Release||Light Point Security Provides Safe Downloads with Metascan|
Light Point Security is a cyber security company that offers an innovative solution for safe web browsing. Given the complexity of web browsers and the thousands of new threats created every day, Light Point Security believes that there will always be new flaws to exploit. Instead of trying to filter and block malicious code, their product, Light Point Web, protects users by installing a browser plugin that transparently launches browsing sessions on a remote virtual machine hosted by Light Point Security. This means that whether a website's code is malicious or not, the user's computer will never be exposed to it. When the user ends the browsing session, the one-time use virtual machine is automatically destroyed, along with any malware it may have been exposed to.
