OPSWAT enlarges portfolio of integration tools by adding support for antiphishing, hard disk encryption, peripheral protection, health agent and browser applications.

OPSWAT, Inc., the leading provider of endpoint security integration technologies to software developers and technology vendors today announced the release of OESIS Local v3 and the launch of OBIS.

OESIS Local is an open framework for developing products that detect, assess, manage and remediate security features of antivirus, antispyware, personal firewall, antiphishing, hard disk encryption, peripheral protection and health agent applications running on Windows, Mac OS and Linux operating systems.

OBIS is a light package to detect, assess and manage security-related features of browser applications from Microsoft, Mozilla (Firefox) and Opera ASA. Key features of OBIS include:

  • Secure deletion of temporary files, cookies and passwords

OBIS implements the Department of Defense clearing and sanitizing standard DOD 5220.22-M, providing confidence that once deleted with OBIS, sensitive browser files are gone forever. Note that OBIS securely deletes file data, but not the file names located in free disk space.

  • Save password settings and configuration
  • Set default browser
  • Set browser proxy
  • Set browser default web page

OPSWAT SDKs support integration with hundreds of applications from 50 application vendors, including Microsoft, Google, Symantec, McAfee, Trend Micro, Ebay, SOPHOS, F-Secure, IBM Internet Services, Check Point, Mozilla Foundation and Information Security Corporation. Technology vendors using OESIS Local have distributed products to over 10 million endpoints. OPSWAT customers include Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks, F5 Networks, Aventail, Symantec, Trend Micro and SOPHOS.

"The release of v3 of OESIS Local demonstrates the commitment by OPSWAT to provide customers with a development framework that empowers them to integrate their products with the broadest range of traditional endpoint security products in the market," said Benny Czarny, CEO of OPSWAT. "In addition, the launch of OBIS underlines our intent to also provide customers with integration tools that support security-related features in applications not traditionally considered as endpoint security products."
