We will be hosting two Cyber Security Seminars in Japan and South Korea this month. Both of these events offer a great opportunity to learn about our industry-leading security solutions and to network with OPSWAT, our technology partners, and industry peers. We will be covering a variety of trending security topics including ransomware, email security, data sanitization, and more.
We have been working hard at OPSWAT to prepare a streamlined version of our product line that provides the highest protection and analysis of known and unknown threats.

All of our products, with the exception of OESIS, will now fall under the Metadefender Product Family.

Metadefender Core includes multiple threat detection methods such as data sanitization, archive scanning, file type verification and workflow policies. Metadefender Security Suite offers several modules that enhance existing security solutions.
