Advanced Threat Detection for Remote Users and Managed Devices
GEARS provides unique advanced threat detection capabilities to give administrators increased reassurance of device health. GEARS utilizes OPSWAT’s Metascan® Online technology to enable advanced threat detection on both devices in the network and remote devices. By using as many as 40 commercial anti-malware engines from vendors like ESET, AVG, Avira, Bitdefender, F-Secure, and others, GEARS can help you identify threats that were not detected by the installed antivirus software. And, by scanning only running processes, GEARS provides a quick scan that can be used efficiently on remote devices prior to authentication or network access.
For devices in the network, GEARS also utilizes the threat logs of the installed antivirus software to determine whether threats are recurring, indicating that they cannot be remediated or that the user is repeatedly downloading a malicious file.
GEARS enables visibility and control over applications installed on the devices in the network, allowing administrators to quickly identify and remediate compliance issues for:
Protection applications, including antivirus, hard disk encryption, antiphishing, firewall and more
Unwanted applications, including public file sharing
Device system status, including whether the system is password protected
Simple Integration to SSL VPN and NAC
GEARS can be easily integrated to other solutions such as VPN Gateways, software applications, SSO solutions and others to take actions based on the compliance status of a device monitored and managed by GEARS. All of the attributes of the GEARS platform are available via our RESTful APIs, enabling users to define what outcomes are important and use the output to enable endpoint device management.
