Upgrading to the latest releases of OPSWAT products allows you to take advantage of new features, added functionality, bug fixes and performance improvements. It also ensures the best path to timely support.
OPSWAT typically has a new release of MetaDefender Core once a month. We recommend that you uptake each new release as it comes out. For organizations that have more restrictive upgrade policies, we recommend that you plan out regularly scheduled upgrades as part of your application management procedures.
Customers with active licenses are entitled to upgrade for free. The upgrade can be done self-service by downloading the latest installer on our portal in the Products section and following the guidelines in our KB How do I upgrade to the latest release of MetaDefender Core?
Note that Metascan was renamed to MetaDefender Core, but the license is interchangeable. i.e. a license for Metascan is the same as a license for MetaDefender Core. Customers with active licenses can download the latest MetaDefender Core releases.
