OPSWAT has added GFI VIPRE Antivirus technology to its MetaDefender solutions portfolio. OPSWAT enhanced its malware detection capabilities by incorporating the award-winning VIPRE Antivirus engine into its MetaDefender Threat Analyzer, MetaDefender for Media and Metascan products.
VIPRE Antivirus protects users from all types of malware threats including viruses, adware, spyware, worms, and rootkits. Through ATG, GFI licenses the VIPRE Antivirus engine and other industry leading security detection and analysis tools to OEMs, ISVs, service providers, enterprises and government agencies worldwide. ATG partners incorporate GFI technologies for use in the products they develop for resale or as critical components of their own internal IT security practices.
“The MetaDefender products will help introduce VIPRE Antivirus to OPSWAT’s diverse customer base, which includes FORTUNE 500 companies, government agencies and leading hardware and software producers,” said Chad Loeven, vice president, Advanced Technology Group, GFI Software. “Malware detection is of paramount concern for these companies, but it is rarely a core competency. That’s why they rely on GFI’s Advanced Technology Group and our partners to integrate VIPRE into their own products and systems.”
ATG’s specialized threat analysis and defense solutions include:
GFI Sandbox – An industry leading analysis tool that enables security professionals to assess suspected malware, its behavior and its potential threat within a controlled, monitored environment. GFI Sandbox enables users to see how potential malware applications execute, what system changes they will make and what network traffic they attempt to generate without risking actual loss of data or compromising a network. GFI Sandbox is used by government and defense agencies, as well as large enterprises like financial institutions to identify and defend against targeted attacks on their systems.
GFI ThreatTrack – Continuously updated data feeds generated by GFI’s extensive partner network and internal research provide subscribers with the latest malicious websites, IP addresses and malware. ThreatTrack users proactively identify and defend against harmful URLs, emails and other Internet traffic threatening their network. ThreatTrack is available as a stand-alone data feed, or it can be licensed for inclusion in third-party security products or as an add-on service with GFI Sandbox.
VIPRE Antivirus SDK – A powerful, best-of-breed antimalware Software Development Kit (SDK) that enables OEM partners, ISVs, service providers and enterprises to integrate the VIPRE Antivirus engine into their products or custom applications developed for internal use. The VIPRE Antivirus SDK is available for Windows desktop applications and gateway appliances defending the network.
