Storage Security

Protect your cloud and on-premises storage with OPSWAT products

Your stored enterprise data such as documents and images, can contain malware and vulnerabilities and may expose confidential or private information.
Employees may accidentally share documents with Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or confidential content with unauthorized recipients which might be a violation of privacy laws and regulatory requirements under HIPAA, PCI-DSS and GDPR. This can result in significant fines and penalties and incalculable reputational loss.

  • Can you trust every file exchanged and stored in your cloud services or local storage?
  • Do you trust every file your employees share (internally and externally) is going to an authorized recipient?
  • Are you operating an IT environment strictly compliant with regulatory requirements for data security and privacy?

Data storage solutions can spread malicious content instantaneously at the click of a button. Sensitive data can be stolen or transferred accidentally - resulting in potential compliance violations and fines.

While many organizations adopt numerous additional security solutions, managing and integrating them is costly and time consuming. Enterprises need a robust layer of protection for securing their data in the cloud and on-premises storage to meet regulatory requirements.

OPSWAT offers an easy, integrated approach to address all these issues.

OPSWAT Secure Storage Solutions

Whether you use on-premises storage, cloud storage or a hybrid solution we have the right products to meet your needs. We keep all your data secure whether it is stored at your physical location, in-motion, or stored in the Cloud.

Over 1,000 organizations use OPSWAT for cybersecurity and compliance.

Superior Malware Scanning

Many enterprises scan with only a single anti-malware engine. Industry best practices recommend scanning with as many engines as possible. OPSWAT scans every file with over 35+ anti-malware engines, resulting in detection rates exceeding 99%.

In-Depth Data Reconstruction

Malware can be hidden in innocuous files. Suspicious files should be sanitized before reaching the network and accessed by end users. OPSWAT’s Deep Content Disarm and Reconstruction (Deep CDR) technology sanitizes over 85+ common file types, outputting clean, usable files.

Sensitive Data Control

Forms and templates can be submitted to web portals with sensitive data. Accidentally included PII, like a social security number, may need to be redacted before consumption by the end user. OPSWAT’s Proactive Data Loss Prevention (Proactive DLP) redacts sensitive data, before it reaches the end user.

Low Overhead Implementation

To achieve comprehensive malware and data loss protection, many enterprises integrate multiple systems. OPSWAT gives enterprises powerful control over cybersecurity through a single platform. This results in a higher ROI, higher adoption, lower overhead, and fewer trained professionals needed to oversee complex systems.

Risk of Non Compliance
According to PCI Compliance Blog https://www.pcicomplianceguide.org/faq/#15 the penalties for non-compliance:
The payment brands may, at their discretion, fine an acquiring bank $5,000 to $100,000 per month for PCI compliance violations. The banks will most likely pass this fine along until it eventually hits the merchant. Furthermore, the bank will also most likely either terminate your relationship or increase transaction fees. Penalties are not openly discussed nor widely publicized, but they can be catastrophic to a small business.
