OPSWAT mobile hardware offers infrastructure security for the air gap

Infrastructure protection vendor OPSWAT has announced the availability of its new MetaDefender Kiosk K2100 hardware, designed to provide a mobile option for users who want the company’s media-scanning capabilities to work in the field.
