OESIS Signatures provides developers of both agent-based and agentless solutions an XML database to perform endpoint application assessment and management

Licensees can now access a database of over 3,500 individual application instructions, giving them ability, with or without an endpoint client, to classify information retrieved from endpoint devices, from which the status of endpoint can be assessed.

OPSWAT today announced the release of OESIS Signatures, a separately licensed extension of OESIS Framework, the industry-standard SDK for checking endpoint compliance. OESIS Signatures is a new XML feed that provides detailed information for developers about how to detect, assess and manage thousands of endpoint applications.

OESIS Signatures, currently in beta, enables detection, assessment and remediation of endpoint applications by providing application signatures in XML format. The XML provides easy-to-use information for coding the application detection and assessment capabilities of OESIS into a company’s software solution. The detection and management features of OESIS Signatures allow network administrators to determine the status of applications installed on an endpoint, including whether an antivirus has real time protection enabled or whether hard disk encryption is installed on the device.

Solution vendors have the ability to license either the entire OESIS Signatures database or parts of the database based on what type of security application script they require for their agent-based or agentless solutions. Customers can integrate management capabilities for thousands of supported endpoint security applications and application types including antivirus, mobile device management, public file sharing, antiphishing, hard disk encryption and many others for multiple operating systems. In addition to supporting Windows and Mac, OESIS Signatures also supports implementing endpoint health checks for mobile devices with mobile device management applications on iOS devices and several security applications such as backup, geolocation, firewall and more on Android devices.

“OESIS Signatures opens up a new way for solution vendors to detect, assess and manage third party applications,” said Tom Mullen, Vice President of Business Development at OPSWAT. “Licensees can now access a database of over 3,500 individual application instructions, giving them ability, with or without an endpoint client, to classify information retrieved from endpoint devices, from which the status of endpoint can be assessed.”

Software developers requiring a uniform API to enable detection, assessment and management of endpoint applications may opt to license OPSWAT’s full, robust OESIS Framework. The OESIS Framework is a cross platform, open development framework that powers solutions for leading vendors such as Cisco, Juniper, Citrix and many others. This technology helps SSL VPN and NAC providers implement features for checking endpoint health and compliance.

OESIS Local, a component of OESIS Framework, expands on the capabilities of OESIS Signatures with in-depth libraries that can be embedded into endpoint clients to enable the detection, classification and management of third party applications installed on an endpoint. By utilizing OESIS technology, OESIS Local verifies the integrity of security applications by certifying binaries to avoid the risk of spoofing.
