Leader in anti-phishing technology integrates its automatic forensics and incident response module into OPSWAT’s Advanced Threat Prevention platform to analyze all suspicious email attachments in real-time

IRONSCALES, the world’s first automated phishing prevention, detection and response platform, today announced the details of a new partnership with OPSWAT, a global provider of solutions that protect organizations from content and device-based threats, to improve detection and analysis of unknown phishing messages. As part of the collaboration, IRONSCALES' IronTraps, its automatic phishing forensics and incident response module, and OPSWAT’s MetaDefender, an advanced threat prevention platform, will automatically test all detected and reported suspicious email attachments against more than 30 leading anti-malware engines, and apply Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology to sanitize the files. This integration provides both company’s customers with unmatched phishing threat protection and malware detection and analysis in an era when advanced phishing attacks are increasingly bypassing perimeter defenses.

“Advanced malware-laden phishing emails continue to place an undue burden on security and SOC teams to analyze malicious messages,” said, Eyal Benishti, founder and CEO of IRONSCALES. “The integration of IronTraps with OPSWAT MetaDefender will alleviate some of the SOC team backlog by automatically examining all suspicious emails with attachments and prompting immediate remediation when an attack is confirmed.”

Benefits of the IRONSCALES-OPSWAT product integration include:

  •     Significantly increase phishing threat detection rates using the combined power of more than 30 anti-malware engines
  •     Significantly reduce detection and response times
  •     Detect phishing threats more seamlessly through human and machine integration
  •     Sanitize suspicious files without compromising file usability
  •     Protect against zero-day and targeted attacks
  •     Protect against unknown threats with integrated heuristic traffic analysis by multiple leading anti-malware engines
  •     Secure cloud resources by scanning with multiple fully updated anti-malware engines (anyone can sample this capability at

“Integrating IronTraps and MetaDefender provides enterprises with automatic remediation capabilities that will significantly improve the time from threat detection to enterprise-wide response,” said Tom Mullen, senior vice president of business development at OPSWAT. “We have been following the evolution of IRONSCALES technology closely for the past few years and believe strongly that its human and machine approach to combat phishing is the right strategy to combat the increasingly sophisticated problem that is email security.”
