OPSWAT Endpoint Security SDK Monitor

OPSWAT Endpoint Security SDK Monitor is a cloud data service that tracks the update status of machine learning and signature-based antimalware products. An update occurs across all global vendors every 10 minutes

Through integration with OPSWAT Endpoint Security SDK Monitor, OEM customer solutions can determine if the antimalware product on the endpoint is completely up-to-date, and if not, how many updates are behind it. OEM customers can offer solutions which allow administrators to set flexible endpoint compliance policies with respect to antimalware protection. For some organizations, only the endpoints running the very latest in antimalware protection are compliant, for others, being within a few updates of the most current may suffice.

OPSWAT Endpoint Security SDK Monitor is available for the following programming interfaces:

  • C++ on Windows and Linux operating systems

  • JAVA on Windows operating systems

OPSWAT also offers VMod Source, a cross platform utility available as source code or libraries, to perform a comparison between OPSWAT Endpoint Security SDK Monitor data and endpoint status information provided by OPSWAT Endpoint Security SDK . This utility lets customers easily enhance their products to determine the up-to-date status of installed antivirus and antispyware applications.


VMod Source Example

Update Verify checks for discrepancies between the current status information pulled from endpoint applications by OPSWAT Endpoint Security SDK and the applications' latest definition update information, provided by OPSWAT Endpoint Security SDK Monitor. By comparing the information from these two sources against a policy set by the customer (e.g. endpoint may be 3 definitions behind), Update Verify can determine whether an endpoint antivirus or antispyware application is considered up to date.
