Transfer allowed files to a secure portal, eliminating the need to bring removable media such as USBs

OPSWAT, provider of solutions to secure and manage IT infrastructure, today announced the release of Metadefender Secure File Transfer, an add-on to their portable media security solution Metadefender. With the Secure File Transfer add-on, Metadefender can transfer allowed files to a secure portal, eliminating the need to bring removable media such as USBs or DVDs into a secure network, and providing a more complete secure data workflow for high security organizations.

Metadefender protects corporate networks from the risk of removable media devices, such as USB drives and CDs/DVDs, by scanning files with up to 30 anti-malware engines and allowing organizations to configure detailed content filters. With Metadefender Secure File Transfer, high security organizations such as banks, military institutions, and public utilities, can now safely transfer processed files into separated networks (optionally with the use of a data diode), ensuring that only authenticated users are allowed access to the files.

“Metadefender Secure File Transfer improves the portable media scanning process and provides a secure and efficient workflow,” said George Prichici, Product Manager of Metadefender SFT at OPSWAT. “After users scan their portable media on the Metadefender kiosk, the allowed files are automatically encrypted and transferred to the secure portal, eliminating the need to bring any portable media into the secure area. In addition, Metadefender Secure File Transfer includes extensive auditing that records each transfer and download, providing companies with more insight and control over their data flow.”
