1. MetaDefender Client

The MetaDefender Client can be installed on endpoints and run in the background, monitoring for any USB storage devices or discs that are inserted into the system. When a removable device is detected, MetaDefender Client will block access to that device and prompt the user to initiate an action. The user can do the below actions on the removable device:

  • Copy files from drive - Allows users to specify files, which if found clean will be copied to the "MetaDefender" folder on the desktop. If the file is suspicious, it will not be copied.

  • Unblock drive - Scans the entire drive, if the drive is found clean then it unlocks the drive. Once unblocked, the drive should work as normal, it is fully accessible from Windows Explorer.

  • Copy files to drive - Allows users to copy files to a drive without scanning it with MetaDefender. This enables users to skip the scanning process if read access to the USB is not required.

The MetaDefender Client also supports users scan their device with options:

  • Running processes and associated libraries

  • Boot Records

  • System Drives

  • USB

  • CD/DVD
