2. Public APIs

Metadefender Cloud enables you to leverage our threat detection and prevention platform, Metadefender. For scanning files, hash lookups, vulnerability assessment, and data sanitization we do offer free usage through our web interface for exclusively demo purposes. For commercial use, please consult our Licensing page and contact our sales team to discuss which licensing model will suit your needs.

A free integration with Metadefender.com multi-scanning technology through the REST API is allowed only for:

  • Prototyping the integration with Metadefender

  • Integration in your solution for demo purposes if and only if:

    • The integration in production will leverage a Metadefender Core or Metadefender.com commercial license

    • It's used only to demonstrate the product integration and will not save any data

Free users will be able to consume scan reports from 40+ anti-malware engines, but they are not allowed to use the data provided by our platform in any way. For commercial use, the engine list will be limited to the engines with which we have OEM agreements. Please consult the list of available engines on our Licensing page.

For more information on how to use this REST API, please see our documentation below.
