Opswat has introduced Metascan Client for endpoints running Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Metascan is a server application for scanning files with multiple antivirus. In late 2011, Opswat had launched Metascan Online, an online malware scanner using 43 different antivirus engines. They have now released Metascan Client.
Metascan Client will allow multi-scanning of files, processes, and drives on endpoints and can be used in a variety of environments like checking a user’s system before they are connected to a corporate VPN, regular monitoring of endpoints in a network, checking for viruses as part of endpoint troubleshooting and so on. It would thus be very useful for Network Administrators who want to ensure that a system is malware-free before allowing anyone else to connect to the corporate network
Metascan Client adds an extra level of protection by scanning with multiple engines and is able to perform fast memory scans – along with full and custom scans, when enabled. It is compatible with network solutions from Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks, F5 Networks and many other. It offers no conflicts with anti-malware products already installed
It is available as an endpoint-only or as a client-server software package. The scanning can be done by your Metascan server(s) or through the Metascan cloud service.
