OPSWAT quote for press release

OPSWAT is a neat company that develops toolkits for embedding security into applications. The most common need is for a general purpose interface to make calls to an AV product, allowing the application vendor to pick and choose the right AV engine for the job. OPSWAT also includes logic to facilitate a clean removal of security - a welcome capability for those of us who have ever attempted to uninstall an AV product when switching vendors. They do interesting work with a refreshingly pragmatic approach. I am pleased to support their press release with a quote:

“As the IT need for embedding security solutions in the fabric of the infrastructure becomes an increasing necessity due to the growing number of Internet-based threats, so does the ability to manage these solutions in an efficient manner,” said Eric Ogren, founder and principal analyst at the Ogren Group. “OPSWAT, Inc.’s Metascan technology provides the capability to bolt anti-malware scanning engines directly onto third-party software. Together with OESIS application management features, the acquisition of Metadefender’s technology nicely positions OPSWAT to provide a comprehensive, all-inclusive anti-malware scanning engine, benefiting vendors of secure products.”
