emt Distribution and OPSWAT join hands to address cybersecurity challenges of critical infrastructures in META region
The deal will see the two firms increase collaboration across the region
emt Distribution, pioneers in offering breakthrough technologies in the region now delivers unique and efficient technology primarily focusing on critical infrastructures and IoT/SCADA/air-gapped environments in collaboration with OPSWAT.
With the vision of ‘Trust no file, Trust no device’, OPSWAT’s flagship technology Metadefender Core addresses the challenges of customers who do not want to compromise on the authenticity of the files entering their environment through any mediums, be it web/emails/USB/APIs, etc.
“OPSWAT partnership is instrumental in enhancing emt’s vision of delivering world-class and advance solutions in the markets. Following a successful decade with OPSWAT in the APAC region, we are replicating our accomplishments in the META region. With this, we are addressing critical infrastructure challenges of organisations of the likes of Govt, Banks, Oil & Gas, Energy, and much more in a simplistic yet highly unconventional way,” said Vishal Bhatia, Channel Business Development Manager.
With module such as ‘Multiscanning’ where the power of 35 antivirus engines with the likes of Crowdstrike, TrendMicro, McAfee, and many more come to play and, ‘deep CDR’ (Content Disarm & reconstruction a.k.a. Data Sanitization) Metadefender Core ensures every file is scanned and ‘disarmed’ from the most common attack vectors before reaching the user.
OPSWAT’s ICAP server can integrate with almost all firewalls, web gateway, data diodes, NAS, and much more! This further augments file upload protection. An ideal use case for organizations like banks, ministries, tender boards, etc. who have a web portal for file uploads.
Offerings such as Metadefender Kiosks are optimal for customers like Oil & Gas, Aerospace, Defense, Power stations, etc. who have ‘zero tolerance’ for external USB’s and yet want to develop a framework of trusted files received from external environments.
With over 60 named OPSWAT customers in the Middle East, emt Distribution’s focus is to build strategic partnerships and create a channel ecosystem to address challenges of critical infrastructures through consulting and inhouse professionals.
