MetaDefender ICAP Server

Advanced Threat Prevention for Network Traffic

Cybercriminals relentlessly attempt to upload malware to your systems. Employees accidentally visit malicious websites or download harmful files and vulnerable software from the internet. Both internal and external users intendedly or unintendedly submit files containing sensitive data.

Enterprises need a powerful multi-layered cybersecurity system to prevent harmful, offensive or inappropriate content.

MetaDefender ICAP Server protects your systems and users by inspecting every file traveling through your network. Every file is scanned for malware and vulnerabilities. With custom policies and workflows, suspicious files can be blocked or deeply sanitized. Sensitive information is blocked, removed or redacted before leaving your network. All files are remediated, before they are accessible to the end user.

MetaDefender ICAP Server is a plug-and-play solution to protect your network against malicious internet content.
