OESIS Framework Update

I have good news to share about the OPSWAT Access Control Certification Program (OACC).

First, over 100 endpoint security vendors now participate in the program including well-known brands such as Avast, Avira, Bitdefender, Carbon Black, Cybereason, Cisco, CrowdStrike, ESET, F-Secure, Kaspersky, Palo Alto Networks, Panda, SentinelOne, Symantec and Trend Micro.

Second, we issued a record-high number of certification awards (38) in our quarter ending March 31, 2020, building momentum from a very respectable 25 certifications awarded in Q4 2019. Perhaps even more importantly, the number of applications submitted by vendors in the past two quarters is more than double the submissions made in the two corresponding quarters for the year immediately prior.

And, at this early stage of Q2, OACC appears to be on a path to awarding 30% more Certifications than awarded in Q2 2019. More details about OACC are available, here.

Increased vendor participation in OACC means OEM customers of the OESIS Framework should expect improved Zero-day support for endpoint protection detection and more functionally rich compliance checking of pre-installed antimalware and encryption products.

To support the increase in OACC participation and to continuously improve the OESIS Framework we are actively recruiting additional analysts to join the OESIS engineering team. We expect the combination of greater vendor participation in OACC and additional analyst manpower will reduce the average time needed to add new product support into OESIS from the current 10 days, to only 5 days by the end of 2020.

We have also decided to make available the Vulnerability and Patch Management Module of the OESIS Framework to our OEM customers. We have been validating interest among enterprise customers for endpoint vulnerability assessment and auto-patching features through MetaAccess, our Zero Trust solution for secure device access. Based on increased usage of these features over the last 3 years by MetaAccess customers, we are now offering it as a mature, market-tested solution to our valued OEM customers to incorporate into their products. The Vulnerability and Patch Management Module is described here.
