Easy to use, fast, great support

I use this virus scan solution in a multi account setup, triggering the scan manually for select files. Scans are super fast, really robust solution, no problems so far. I had a few questions regarding integration in my existing infrastructure - the guys from widdix responded very quick with useful information. Integration took just a few hours!

Awesome service

Works great and scales well. Integrated well to our services. Team that supports the product is always staying up to date on the latest features and tries to incorporate feature requests. Love using bucketAV so far.


Fast and easy to use

We needed a anti-virus solution to scan our files on s3. This for new files and on a regular basis the entire bucket. This solution works right out of the box, hooking up multiple buckets and accounts without issue. Depending on the size and multitude of items to be scanned you can adjust scaling and instance size. „…“ A real recommendation!
