OPSWAT Launches MetaDefender Cloud Email Security. Read More

Event Wrap-Up: GISEC 2022 in Dubai

This year, the most influential cybersecurity event in the Middle East and Africa, GISEC, was held at the Dubai World Trade Centre from March 21-March 23, 2022.

The OPSWAT team was there to demonstrate its new MetaDefender Kiosk L1001, which was launched in July 2021. This all-in-one solution is a fully integrated hardware appliance for air-gapped and/or networked critical infrastructure environments. Not only was the OPSWAT team demonstrating its MetaDefender Kiosk at the booth, but also the MetaDefender Drive, which is a secure firmware bootable USB used for assessing malware, vulnerabilities, and sensitive data in any USB bootable system.

It was a great opportunity for OPSWAT to discuss IT and OT cybersecurity with hundreds of technology end-users across GCC region and introduce our critical infrastructure protection solutions, including Cross-Domain Solutions, File Upload Security, Storage Security, and Email Security.

A Look Back to 2021

OPSWAT Founder and CEO Benny Czarny was unfortunately not able to join this year’s event, but last year he delivered a keynote session discussing what Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) is and how to select the right CDR technology.

Here’s a quick high-level recap of his presentation:

  • Existing technologies fail to prevent cyber threats because malware is growing in complexity and becoming increasingly successful at avoiding traditional and next-gen anti-malware engines and sandboxes.
  • CDR technology can protect enterprises from known and unknown threats, zero-day attacks, advanced persistent threats (APT), and sophisticated evasive malware.
  • With so many CDR technology solutions available on the market today, how do you know which solution is best for your organization?

If you are interested in learning more about Benny’s CDR presentation at GISEC 2021 or have any questions, please contact one of our critical infrastructure cybersecurity experts.

OPSWAT developed CDR technology to address zero-day cyber threats that are not detected by traditional anti-malware and dynamic analysis solutions like sandboxes. Traditional anti-malware and dynamic analysis solutions like sandboxes are missing threats because they were built to detect an anomaly in a file or in a file’s behavior.

OPSWAT CDR technology, called Deep CDR, assumes all files are malicious. It ingests files and then regenerates these files in a way that ensures the regenerated file is both usable and harmless. Hence, our CDR technology provides protection without needing to know whether a suspected file is “good” or “bad.”
