4. Throttling

There are certain endpoints in MetaDefender Cloud that are being throttled:

Our throttling mechanism allows up to:

  • 10 requests / minute for free users

  • 100 requests / minute for paid users

To the above endpoints. If a user exceeds the allowed values, the requests will be blocked, and a http response code of 403 will be returned on the v2 API. (429 for v3 API)


In such cases, please limit the number of requests sent per minute.
