How Metascan Works with anti-malware API and anti-malware SDKsolutions

Metascan has multiple anti-malware scanning engines embedded within its framework at the API level. This means that scanning operations are executed with a high level of performance, which cannot be achieved by simply passing files to separate command-line or GUI based versions of anti-malware products. Anyone looking to integrate with an anti-malware solution such as McAfee or Symantec via API or SDK will find Metascan to be an ideal security solution. See the use cases for a range of anti-malware API solutions that can be created with Metascan.
