OPSWAT Access Control Certification Program powers zero-trust architecture

OPSWAT has offered MetaAccess, zero-trust, device compliance solution- free of charge for up to 50 endpoints. MetaAccess supports MFA and secure cloud access out of the box. Try it today. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced a lot of enterprise employees to shelter at home. IT departments were caught off-guard and scramble to limit the negative impact on productivity while enabling access to corporate resources and applications so that the staff can perform their job duties. This has given rise to the number of offsite workers who connect to their corporate assets using company-sanctioned remote access tools, whether these tools are ready for primetime or not. There is evidence that many attackers are exploiting this opportunity to use compromised devices, penetrate corporate networks and cause data theft or service disruptions. The current situation has forced a sudden paradigm shift. Many users were previously protected behind firewalls and now are using personal devices without proper vetting. A sudden surge in mobile workforce has highlighted the importance of the zero-trust model and fallacy of trusting BYOD.

Lately MetaDefender Cloud identified TrickBot, a credential-stealing malware, used a new module that launches a trojan to infect computers and initiate RDP brute-force attacks targeting the critical infrastructure. The same trojan has a track record for hijacking OpenSSH and OpenVPN credentials. A single compromised device can cause tremendous damage and destroy a company’s brand. That is why over 100 million enterprise devices rely on OPSWAT technology to offer compatibility assurance and security effectiveness. For over a dozen years, OPSWAT Access Control Certification Program has provided leading access control solution providers with the right validation tool to make certain that corporate assets are protected and devices do not pose an existential threat to organizations’ digital hygiene.
