To keep your business operating smoothly, you often need to share files with employees, partners and customers. Unfortunately, this exposes your business to malicious file uploads putting your data at risk.
Your business data is one of your most valuable assets, which is why cybercriminals are desperate to get their hands on it.
The good news is that OPSWAT security solutions help you respond to data threats by offering comprehensive security solutions across all the areas and devices of your business.

The even better news is that OPSWAT security solutions are now available to South African businesses through Altron Arrow.
File upload protection
Malicious parties commonly attempt to infiltrate your systems through file uploads.
They use common file types to hide advanced threats that will exploit vulnerabilities in your system and, ultimately, compromise either an end user or your entire company.
There are four ways you can prevent this from taking place:
- Integrate with antivirus APIs: You should integrate antivirus APIs that scan all file uploads for known malware.
- Sanitise productivity files: Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) takes a productivity file, breaks it down into small parts, and analyses each part separately for threats.
- Extract archive file uploads: Malicious files can be hidden in archives, meaning you need to scan and sanitise the files within an archive.
- File type verification: Malicious parties can disguise files as other file types, such as making .exe files look like .txt files.
OPSWAT’s MetaDefender is a fully automated malware prevention system that implements all four of the measures listed above.
It offers a rich set of REST APIs that can be used to integrate dynamic security features, includes innovative Deep CDR functionality, and implements archive extraction to scan for malicious threats hidden within.
It also supports file type verification, ensuring you protect yourself against disguised threats.
Another major area in cybersecurity is physical media — including disks, flash memory cards, mobile devices and USB storage devices.
MetaDefender Kiosk, through the K3001 Premium device, acts as your digital security guard by inspecting all the media types for malware, vulnerabilities and sensitive data.
The device can sanitise suspicious files, too, while sensitive files can be redacted as appropriate.
The K3001 Premium is ready to deploy immediately, as it is pre-configured with a region-specific power cord, power protection and a UPS.
It is also ruggedised for industrial environments, with a heavy-duty powder-coated steel enclosure and stainless steel and aluminium internal cabinetry.
