What is Metascan?
Metascan is a powerful and flexible solution for detecting and preventing known and unknown threats. ISVs, IT admins and malware researchers use Metascan to get easy access to multiple anti-malware engines at a single time, via a rich set of APIs.
This technology is available through Metascan Online via the web interface and API, as well as through an on-premises version of Metascan that can be deployed in your own environment and even offline, with additional features like document sanitization available.
No anti-malware engine is perfect. With more than 8 million new threats emerging each month, it would be impossible for any single product to provide guaranteed protection 100% of the time. For organizations that need enhanced security, using multiple anti-malware engines can increase detection rates significantly.
The chart to the right shows the detection of several keyloggers by ten anti-malware engines, demonstrating how Metascan can provide enhanced detection rates of threats, including outbreaks.
Metascan leverages many anti-malware engines from vendors like ESET, AVG, Microsoft, Bitdefender, Symantec, F-Secure, Kaspersky Lab, McAfee, and many others, benefitting from their detection algorithms and heuristics to increase detection rates for all types of malware, including attacks specifically targeting Windows, Linux, Android and other operating systems. Metascan technology eliminates the hassle of licensing, modifying, and maintaining multiple anti-malware engines; all engines integrated into Metascan products are optimized to scan simultaneously for fast, high performance scanning.
Metascan Online currently includes engines from Symantec, McAfee, ESET, Norman, AVG and many others.
Prevent unknown threats
To prevent advanced threats that might be missed by anti-malware engines from entering your organization, Metascan can sanitize potentially dangerous file types to thwart zero-day and targeted attacks. In addition, Metascan can identify and block files that have spoofed file type extensions, which indicates potential malicious intent. The combination of scanning data with anti-malware engines first, leveraging the power of their individual heuristic analyses, followed by converting potentially risky files to remove embedded threats greatly decreases the chances of your network being infected by an unknown threat.
What is IP scanning?
Metascan Online now allows you to check IP addresses for malicious behavior using multiple IP reputation sources.
