OPSWAT MetaDefender – helping power the American West

In the western USA, the largest electric utility has a million customers and operates thousands of miles of lines and cables – protected and secured by OPSWAT’s MetaDefender Kiosk devices.

“During the seven months since MetaDefender was implemented, the solution has been used to scan up to one thousand media devices each day at each of the company’s facilities, and not one system has experienced a malware infection,” according to OPSWAT.

As an operator of both fossil-fuel and nuclear power plants, the company needs effective defences against cyber threat, including sabotage and intrusion. Its systems are continually modified, updated, upgraded and maintained using data downloaded from CDs, USB flash drives, external hard disks, memory cards, PDAs and other portable media.

The solution? Two or more OPSWAT MetaDefender Kiosks were deployed at each of the company’s sites to scan visitors’ removable media, utilising multiple built-in antivirus engines to detect malicious code.
