MetaDefender Vault

Storage You Can Trust

Deliver Security and trust across the perimeter

Transferring files into and out of any networked environment exposes systems in that environment to breach and infection. Portable and removable media are often used to conduct these transfers, bypassing security protocols. MetaDefender Vault is a secure file storage and retrieval solution that protects critical data and keeps threats at bay. It provides a multi-tiered approval process and detail audit log for data transfers within an organization.

Secure. Approve. Access.

  • The moment files enter MetaDefender Vault, they are scanned for malware and vulnerabilities by 35+ of the cyber industry’s best malware and heuristics engines.
  • Files are re-scanned and evaluated continuously as virus definitions are updated in order to avoid Zero Day incidents
  • Suspicious files are sanitized.
  • Rules can be created to block access to files for a pre-set containment period to enable vendor analysis and engine updates for new Zero Day outbreaks.
  • Workflow job function and approval sequences confirm who must authorize inbound and outbound files and who can access them.

Primary features and benefits

Outbreak Prevention

Prevent zero-day attacks and ensure your organization can handle false negatives through a variety of options. Lock any new file in a time-specific quarantine, continuously re-scan with multiple antimalware engines, implement role-based access rules to reduce exposure.

Get an overview of processing and detection activity over time.

Access Control

Enforce workflow processes that require authentication and restrict access and sharing of files, by job role and file type.

Control the list of supervisors authorized to perform certain actions like lock access to any file that has not been pre-approved.

Enforce multi-stage approval process for highly sensitive data.

User Management

One unified view simplifies user classification and management.

Distinguishing between Active Directory, Guest, and Local Users, allows the flexibility of sharing files from outside yet keeps security in place by allowing time-based expiration of files for Guests.

Easily filter and synchronize users in Active Directory. Gain visibility and manage licensing issues.


A variety of options, allowing you to configure and receive email notifications for different actions, give you complete visibility into the workflow for immediate response to potentially harmful actions.

Multi use solution

MetaDefender Vault integrates with MetaDefender Kiosk eliminating wait times at the kiosk so that processing can occur in parallel to critical infrastructure access processing procedures.

Integration with MetaDefender Email Gateway Security enables all attachments to be replaced with links to sanitized files stored in Vault.

Direct integration with Microsoft Active Directory (one or multiple domains) speeds up user adoption.

Integration via Rest API allows for high volume processing.

Vault to vault integration allows for multiple secure environments to have a safe way of transferring files between network security zones or security domains; especially those with differing levels of criticality.

Audit trail

Maintain a record of all user actions (adding and deleting users, file upload, transfer, deletion, sharing, blocking, and purging) to fulfill requirements for corporate compliance.

Additionally, maintain a history of all files processed for your records.

Multiple Storage Options

Flexibility to store in multiple locations for maximum productivity - locally, somewhere on your network, on S3, or any S3 compatible storage.

Store original files in a separate location from sanitized files. Limit access to originals for added security.

Create a Trusted Network List

Restrict access to trusted networks for additional security. Apply upload or download restrictions for users that log in using different IP addresses for additional security.
