About OPSWAT
Founded in 2002, OPSWAT is the industry leader in soware
management SDKs, interoperability certication, and
multiple-engine scanning solutions. With both soware
manageability and multi-scanning products, OPSWAT oers
simplied and comprehensive SDKs that reduce time and
costs for your engineering and testing teams.
OPSWAT Certication
The OPSWAT Certication Program is a free interoperability
program designed to enable technology partnerships
between independent soware vendors and leading network
and technology solution vendors, by verifying that their
security applications will work seamlessly with solutions
employing the OESIS Framework. Additional information is
available at www.opswat.com/certified.
Multi-scanning
OPSWAT oers several multi-scanning solutions to enable
fast, powerful content scanning. Because no single antivirus
engine is perfect, using multiple engines signicantly
improves the likelihood of detecting malware.
Metascan technology powers each of OPSWATs
multi-scanning solutions, enabling IT professionals and
soware engineers to enhance network security by scanning
with up to 30 built-in antivirus engines from market leaders
such as ESET, Norman, AVG and many others. Metascan
allows for custom implementations, such as integration with
other engines of your choice, and can be used for rapid
malware analysis and to implement sophisticated data loss
prevention systems.
For specic multi-scanning needs, OPSWAT also oers
MetaDefender for Secure Access (MD4SA), which quickly
scans endpoints running processes and memory for key
loggers, viruses and other malware, and MetaDefender for
Media (MD4M), which scans removable media such as USB
drives, CDs, DVDs, and memory cards.
A free demo of Metascan technology is available at
www.metascan-online.com.
GEARS
OPSWAT GEARS provides cloud-based endpoint
management and monitoring to help IT managers prevent
security compromises caused by missing patches and
out-of-date or ineective security soware (such as
antivirus, antispyware and desktop rewalls). GEARS is
available as a white label solution ideal for wireless access
point and storage vendors, and a free demo is available at
www.opswatgears.com.
Secure Virtual Desktop
Browse securely and privately from any computer using
Secure Virtual Desktop (SVD). By creating an isolated
environment, SVD ensures that no trace of le creation, le

for protecting data accessed from public computers or guest
laptops. To learn more, visit www.securevirtualdesktop.com.

manageability solutions, and is already deployed on an
estimated 100 million endpoints worldwide.
