organizations from cyber security threats in content that originates
from a variety of sources, such as web, email, portable media, and

prevents malicious file uploads, email-borne threats, and malware
introduced via portable devices and media—such as USB drives—through the
use of OPSWAT's patented content
disarm and reconstruction
(CDR) and multi-scanning

file ensuring full usability with safe content.
