OPSWAT and Light Point Security are partnering to offer a unique solution that will complement Light Point Security’s existing browsing isolation solution by scanning and sanitizing each downloaded file with OPSWAT’s advanced Content Disarm and Reconstruction/data sanitization technology.
San Francisco, CA, Mar. 28, 2017 – OPSWAT, Inc. and Light Point Security today announced their partnership to provide completely secure web browsing with web isolation and threat-free file downloads. OPSWAT provides industry-leading solutions to secure and manage IT infrastructure, including data sanitization (Content Disarm and Reconstruction) to strip exploitable content from files, and Light Point Security offers the Light Point Web Full Isolation PlatformTM, the only browsing isolation technology to provide full isolation from all web content and seamless integration with existing browsers.
The Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform transparently protects enterprises from ransomware and all web-based malware by isolating users’ web browsing activity onto a remote, secure environment. This prevents any web code from ever reaching users’ computers, and thus totally eliminates the risk of compromising enterprise endpoints and assets via web-borne threats.
OPSWAT’s threat detection and prevention platform, Metadefender, combines next-generation data sanitization (also known as Content Disarm and Reconstruction), vulnerability detection, and multi-scanning with over 30 anti-malware engines. Metadefender also offers a number of other security functionalities, along with flexible deployment options and dynamic REST APIs.
By integrating OPSWAT’s data sanitization (CDR) engines with Light Point Security’s remote browser isolation platform, all downloaded files will be thoroughly scanned and sanitized before the user’s local machine receives them. The integration will not impact the end users’ productivity, since all sanitized files will be reconstructed with all their functionality and usability intact. This joint solution provides users 100% malware prevention from malicious websites through Light Point Security’s Full Isolation technology and comprehensive malware protection from malicious file downloads through OPSWAT’s data sanitization and multi-scanning engines.
Most file types can be sanitized with OPSWAT’s CDR technology, but for file formats that are not currently supported, Light Point Web will pass the files through its existing integration with OPSWAT’s multi-scanning engines before downloading the files from the web to the user’s computer. The multi-scanning integration was released almost two years ago, and the addition of data sanitization was the most natural next step.
Benny Czarny, CEO and Founder of OPSWAT, said, “We see a lot of interest from our partners for integrating with our Content Disarm and Reconstruction engines. In this case, Light Point Security did an amazing job creating the best full browsing isolation solution, but they haven’t stopped there. I congratulate them for going the extra mile in order to provide an end-to-end solution, securing not only the web session, but also the data that is brought inside the organization through that session. Integrating with our Metadefender platform creates an incredible customer value proposition and a strong commitment to all our joint customers.”
“We are excited to continue our strong partnership with OPSWAT,” said Zuly Gonzalez, Co-founder and CEO of Light Point Security. “We’ve been impressed with OPSWAT’s continued commitment to delivering new, innovative solutions for today’s most pressing security challenges. Combining Metadefender’s extensive data sanitization capabilities with the protection of the Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform provides organizations with a rock-solid approach to secure web browsing. This joint solution is the perfect way for enterprises to prevent malware from the web from infecting the corporate network.”
