PacketFence has been an important technology partner of OPSWAT's since 2014. PacketFence is a fully supported, trusted, Free and Open Source network access control (NAC) solution, trusted by thousands of prestigious institutions all around the world.

A new ransomware called PowerWare was recently identified by researchers at Carbon Black. This threat is spreading through phishing emails containing Microsoft Word documents embedded with malicious macros. We have seen a few examples of this threat uploaded to our public Metadefender.com site, where users can scan files, hashes and IP addresses for threats.
Knowing what endpoints are operating within your network is one thing, but knowing what your endpoints are operating on is another. IT administrators need an easy, automated way to detect new devices entering their network, and a way to stay on top of the new updates needed for the devices already in their network. Read our latest Metadefender Endpoint Management release to learn how we have made it easier for admins to tackle both.
OPSWAT is excited to announce the release of Metadefender Kiosk 3.3.2, available for download on the OPSWAT Portal. Included in this release is the ability to specify an email address where Metadefender Kiosk will send copies of the reports for each scanning session.

We would like to inform our customers that there is a possibility that some Windows OS computers connected to your Metadefender Endpoint Management cloud account (formerly called Gears) might have a defective Metadefender Endpoint agent that needs to be updated. Symptoms of a defective Metadefender Endpoint agent might include abnormally high CPU usage or disk I/O on the computer, which will result is users experiencing slow response when using the computer (Note that on more powerful computers the performance might be unnoticeable to the end-user). OPSWAT strongly recommends that you review the endpoints on your cloud environment and update any problematic agents as soon as possible.
