Windows Defender Antivirus + OPSWAT

Windows Defender Antivirus participates in OPSWAT’s Multiscanning technology as an add-on custom engine and as one of the engines that make up the MetaDefender Cloud Free API.

The Microsoft antimalware engine has received top scores in industry tests in the cyber community and is a prominent player in OPSWAT’s commitment to protecting critical infrastructure. Together this partnership offers high-performance traffic scanning and enhances the threat intelligence within OPSWAT cybersecurity community. 

Use Case

Large organizations need to be wary of malware entering and traveling through the network. Windows Defender Antivirus can be used in combination with any of the Windows-based MetaDefender Multiscanning Packages to scan files at every data transfer point. In a recent use case, Windows Defender Antivirus was accessed through the MetaDefender ICAP Server for a quick integration onto a massive network storage array.

Through the MetaDefender ICAP Server, network administrators can monitor, scan, and analyze extracted files from storage arrays before they reach the end-user. This preventive approach to secluding malware is very efficacious in stopping the spread of malicious code.

Similar integrations via ICAP can be orchestrated onto reverse proxy servers, forward proxy servers, and SSL inspectors.
