Cyber Security APIs
Metadefender exposes a rich set of APIs that can be used to build powerful data sanitization, vulnerability assessment, and multi-scanning features into existing solutions and security architectures.
Our flexible integration options include both REST and COM, making Metadefender an attractive option for a variety of users.
IT administrators make use of these APIs to build Metadefender into their network architecture alongside dynamic analysis solutions, file upload servers, and MFTs. Software developers at ISVs often utilize the APIs to integrate the extra security provided by Metadefender into their development processes.
The available APIs include basic methods for scanning a file and retrieving existing scan results using a SHA1, SHA256, or MD5 hash, as well as methods for rescanning files, downloading previously scanned files, and retrieving the queue size.
APIs are also available for retrieving statistics from Metadefender, including file type information, scan history, recent threats, and server health.
