Light Point Web Integrates with Metascan Online to Protect Against Malicious Downloads

Mon, Apr 6, 2015

We recently added a new feature to Light Point Web that warrants some extra recognition. We have added a server-side integration with OPSWAT’s Metascan Online service to provide yet another best-in-class layer of security for our users.

Metascan Online is a cloud service that can scan files with over 40 anti-virus engines, and do so in a matter of seconds. With our integration with Metascan Online, our users will get an extra level of assurance that every file they download is safe without having to wait around for the results. This all happens seamlessly to the user, so no extra work is required by the user to get this additional layer of protection.

What I mean by “complete safety”, is that you do not have to worry about malware infecting your computer. It does not mean you are safe from being tricked into giving your banking passwords to a site that is only pretending to be your bank.
