No chance for Malware: DRACOON cooperates with Avira

Regensburg, September 6, 2018 – Enterprise file sharing specialist DRACOON announce a new technology partnership with Avira to deliver award winning virus protection within their secure file sharing service.

Logo AviraEnterprise file sharing environments handle a diverse range of data. Any data may contain malware in one of its many forms (viruses, trojans, worms, ransomware) and if uploaded to a file sharing service, spread as users access the data. An important part of any file sharing service, particularly secure services, is to be able to scan data in transit for infection, and prevent it from spreading.

DRACOON, headquartered in Germany, has successfully established itself as the market leader in the secure enterprise file-sharing market within the German-speaking market with its secure and multi-certified cloud storage. Together with its new partner Avira, the leading provider of security solutions to consumer and security vendors, DRACOON now offers its customers award-winning anti-virus protection. Any data viewed, edited or shared through DRACOON’s secure cloud storage is checked during  upload or download. Damaged files are detected and isolated immediately.

Marc Schieder, CIO of DRACOON, welcomes the cooperation: “Avira is a first-class product that perfectly complements our cloud storage DRACOON. The ICAP server with SAVAPI enables you to scan files with the award-winning malware detection system that is shared or received through DRACOON. This double security guarantees our customers that they are reliably protected against malware and threats”, explains Schieder.
