HelpSystems + OPSWAT

File sharing platforms offer unprecedented ease and control over data moving inside and outside of your on-prem, cloud and hybrid environments.

However, these new technologies also open several new threat vectors: zero-day malware hidden within a file’s metadata, emerging threats buried in compressed files, or the risk of exposing sensitive information inadvertently. These threats can spread quickly and expose confidential information or allow attackers to expand their reach within your environment to access other resources.
