OPSWAT, the industry leader in software management SDKs, interoperability certification and multiple-engine scanning solutions, licenses its OESIS Framework to Fiberlink to enable management and integration with security and connectivity applications. OESIS Framework is a cross platform, open development framework that enables software engineers and technology vendors to develop products that detect, classify and manage thousands of third-party software applications. OESIS Framework enhances Fiberlink’s security platform by providing customers visibility and control to ensure security applications are working as expected. Examples include: ensuring the antivirus or personal firewall is running, confirming that devices have the latest antivirus definition files, and viewing encryption status.
“Enabling mobility doesn’t have to be a cumbersome task for IT. Our goal is to provide a platform for best practice mobility and security across an increasingly diverse workforce and application portfolio. OESIS Framework gives us assurance that our customers will be able to view, manage, and control their devices no matter what security applications are installed,” said Chris Corbet, Senior Product Manager at Fiberlink.
For security software vendors wishing to partner with Fiberlink, the OPSWAT Certification Program offers an easy process to ensure interoperability. Joining this free program allows vendors to verify that security applications will operate with MaaS360 by Fiberlink and other leading network and technology solutions. Jeff Garon, Director of Marketing at OPSWAT, commented, “As the leading interoperability certification program, OPSWAT Certification provides security software vendors an ideal way to create a technology partnership with MaaS360 by Fiberlink.”
Elisse Lockhart, marketing manager of the OPSWAT Certification Program, also noted: “Vendors are able to easily submit their applications by contacting certification(at)opswat(dot)com.” End users can use the free “Am I OESIS OK?” utility to detect security applications installed on their computer and those applications’ interoperability levels with solutions powered by the OESIS Framework.
