We are excited to partner with OPSWAT and look forward to leveraging their comprehensive Vulnerability information.
(PRWEB) February 10, 2017
OPSWAT, Inc., provider of solutions to secure and manage IT infrastructure, today announced that it has signed an OEM agreement with CrowdStrike, the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection. This integration will provide an additional threat feed to CrowdStrike's system, and it also adds a critical piece in endpoint protection: vulnerability assessment. CrowdStrike will integrate OPSWAT's Metadefender Cloud (Commercial Edition), an application and threat intelligence platform, into their Falcon platform.
CrowdStrike will license the entire feature set of Metadefender Cloud (Commercial Edition), including multi-scanning, application information, and OPSWAT's patent-pending Vulnerability Engine. Through this partnership, CrowdStrike will leverage OPSWAT's threat intelligence, vulnerability detection, and years of experience protecting their users, which include critical infrastructure, government, and enterprise customers.
Metadefender Cloud uses next-generation Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) engines, OPSWAT's Vulnerability Engine, and multi-scanning technology to analyze all submitted files for threats and potential risks. In addition to analyzing files, Metadefender Cloud can perform analysis on a hash, checking for threats, known vulnerabilities, and application reputation information.
Anti-malware engines that participate in the commercial version of Metadefender Cloud receive royalties based on customer usage, as part of the OEM agreements between OPSWAT and the commercial engine partners. OPSWAT also offers a free demo version of Metadefender Cloud for limited, non-commercial usage.
Benny Czarny, CEO and Founder of OPSWAT, said, "Initially, we built our Vulnerability Engine for our OEM OESIS Framework customers. Then we added our Vulnerability Engine to our threat intelligence platform, Metadefender Cloud, enabling integration with any and all endpoint security solutions. CrowdStrike is a leader in the EDR space, and we are extremely excited to integrate our vulnerability detection capabilities with their Falcon platform."
Dmitri Alperovitch CTO and Co-Founder of Crowdstrike, said, "We are excited to partner with OPSWAT and look forward to leveraging their comprehensive Vulnerability information.”
