Metadefender Core is a powerful and flexible security solution for ISVs, IT admins and malware researchers. It provides simultaneous access to multiple anti-malware engines (up to 30) residing on a single system via a rich set of APIs, along with file sanitization, archive scanning, and many other features providing the capability to detect and prevent both known and unknown threats.
Metadefender Core can be used to analyze incoming data from file upload servers, email servers, web proxies, and other sources to determine which files should be allowed entry into the network and which should be blocked. This flexible defense in depth solution integrates extensive file processing capabilities to guarantee a secure workflow from the second data enters your network.
Detect known and unknown threats with up to 30 anti-malware engines
No anti-malware engine is perfect. With more than 8 million new threats emerging each month, it would be impossible for any single product to provide guaranteed protection 100% of the time. For organizations that need enhanced security, using multiple anti-malware engines in a multi-scanning solution can increase detection rates significantly.
Metadefender Core leverages up to 30 anti-malware engines from vendors like ESET, AVG, Microsoft, Bitdefender, Symantec, F-Secure, Kaspersky Lab, McAfee, and many others, benefiting from their detection capabilities and heuristics to increase detection rates for all types of malware, including attacks specifically targeting Windows, Linux, Android and other operating systems. Metadefender Core technology eliminates the hassle of licensing, modifying, and maintaining multiple anti-malware engines; all engines integrated into Metadefender Core products are optimized to scan simultaneously for fast, high-performance scanning.

Prevent unknown threats
To prevent advanced threats that might be missed by anti-malware engines from entering your organization, Metadefender Core can sanitize potentially dangerous file types to thwart zero-day and targeted attacks. In addition, Metadefender Core can identify and block files that have spoofed file type extensions, which indicates potential malicious intent. The combination of scanning data with anti-malware engines first, leveraging the power of their individual heuristic algorithms, followed by converting potentially risky files to remove embedded threats greatly decreases the chances of your network being infected by an unknown threat.
How Metadefender Core works
Metadefender Core has multiple anti-malware scanning engines embedded within its framework at the API level. This means that scanning operations are executed with a high level of performance, which cannot be achieved by simply passing files to separate command-line or GUI-based versions of anti-malware products. Anyone looking to integrate with anti-malware solutions created by firms like Avira, Bitdefender, Kaspersky Lab or Symantec via API or SDK will find Metadefender Core to be an ideal security solution. See the use cases for a range of anti-malware API solutions that can be created with Metadefender Core.
Metadefender Core is available for Windows as well as Linux platforms.
Metadefender Core has countless use cases, such as scanning files uploaded to file upload servers, computer forensic analysis in depth, scanning web traffic through a proxy server, testing data moving across internal security domains, and ISVs analyzing their binaries for false positives. You can even integrate your existing anti-malware software from vendors like Symantec or McAfee via our API.
