  • Expose your intellectual property
  • Disrupt business and destroy systems

Test Your Protection

Attackers often get past security measures by hiding malware deep within compressed files. Many network security solutions are regularly fooled by this technique because they can't analyze a file compressed with any format other than ZIP. Test your network antivirus solution to see if your security will catch malware hiding in a compressed file with Test Your Metal.
