Accellion and OPSWAT Partnership Combines the Industrys First Enterprise Content Firewall with Best-in-Class Threat Prevention

Posted 20 May-2020 02:23 PM by Lisa | 929

provider of the industry?s first enterprise content firewall  and OPSWAT , a leader in critical infrastructure protection, today announced a partnership to secure third party communications from malware and sensitive data breaches.

Every day businesses contend with phishing attacks that introduce malware and Zero-day exploits to corporate networks. The risk of a data breach or compliance violation increases as employees rely on VPNs and home networks to access PII, PHI, and IP.

The Accellion enterprise content firewall provides organizations total visibility and control over the sensitive content employees share with partners, suppliers, and vendors. All 3 rd party communications, like email, SFTP, web forms, mobile and others, are routed through a single conduit, so organizations monitor and trace every transaction. When organizations consolidate their security onto a single platform, they streamline their infrastructure, simplify the user experience and reduce costs.

As a leading provider of critical infrastructure protection, OPSWAT provides fast and scalable threat prevention across corporate content. OPSWAT MetaDefender Core applies advanced technologies in scanning, file-based vulnerability assessment, and more to detect, analyze, and eliminate threats and Zero-day attacks. For example, Deep CDR dissects files, removes any active and potentially dangerous content like a keystroke logger or macro-enabled Office document, and reassembles the file. In addition, multiscanning leverages the intelligence of over 30 antiviruses (AV) solutions to significantly improve detection of known and unknown threats.

This joint solution ensures every email attachment, video, image, or another file from a third party is received by the Accellion platform and routed to OPSWAT MetaDefender Core for secure regeneration (Deep CDR). Files containing malicious code are quarantined and an administrator is notified. Files that pass are authorized for upload into content stores and ECM systems like SharePoint, OneDrive, and CIFS Shares. A syslog entry is created for every file activity, including all scans, for further analysis and correlation by the organization?s SIEM solution.

?As businesses continue to rely more on third-party communications with customers, suppliers, and partners, they are exposed to increased risk from data breaches and compliance violations,? said Benny Czarny, CEO of OPSWAT. ?This partnership enables us to protect more organizations better and faster where Accellion provides consolidated security and visibility Press Release across all channels and OPSWAT provides a powerful content security platform. We are very excited to partner with Accellion on this new solution.?
