Online Storage and Backup Company Enters Anti-Virus OEM Partnership

BitDefender UK : 12 July, 2011  (Application Story)
BitDefender will be providing anti-virus and malware detection to millions of online storage and backup users under new OEM agreement with MediaFire

Marking another step in the growth of its OEM business, BitDefender has announced its partnership with MediaFire, a provider of online storage and backup and file sharing, to offer MediaFire users advanced anti-virus protection and malware detection capabilities.


All users of MediaFire.com who upload their files to MediaFire will be scanned for malware using Virus Scan, powered by BitDefender. Files that do not have malware will continue to be uploaded without interruption, while Virus Scan flags any infected files. If an infected file is found, MediaFire will notify the user to fix the infected file. If the user does not have anti-virus protection, they will be able to download the BitDefender Internet Security software to fix the infected files.


Once the user downloads BitDefender Internet Security, Internet Security will scan the entire system for additional hidden malware to ensure the user feels safe that their system is free from malware. Virus Scan, powered by BitDefender, offers MediaFire’s 110 million monthly users worldwide peace of mind knowing that they can store and share files without having to worry about viruses or other malware threats.


“This OEM partnership will be a tremendous benefit to MediaFire users as they can be confident knowing that all of their files will be scanned for malware and users can fix infected files with BitDefender’s Virus Scan solution,” said a MediaFire spokesman. “BitDefender offers the highest levels of protection and trust and is an ideal partner for MediaFire.”


“MediaFire users can store, back-up and share files with a higher level of trust while preventing other users from being infected with malicious viruses,” said Peter Laakkonen, BitDefender’s General Manager of OEM and Technology Licensing. “With 110 million monthly users and more than half a billion files handled each month, MediaFire is one of the largest file hosting sites on the internet and its decision to partner with BitDefender is another reflection of our leadership in providing advanced anti-virus protection and malware detection capabilities.”
