PacketFence Integrates with Metadefender.com to Block Malicious Downloads

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. OPSWAT's endpoint monitoring and compliance tool, MetaDefender Endpoint Management (Previously Gears) integrates with PacketFence to ensure that only compliant and secure devices have access to your network.

Last week, PacketFence released version 6 of their product, which includes several new features and enhancements offering improved performance and usability. We are excited about this release and PacketFence's recent integration with our cloud-based multi-scanning website, MetaDefender.com. The integration allows PacketFence administrators to extract files hashes and look at downloads from machines that are connected to their network. They can then look up scan results for those downloads through MetaDefender.com. Network administrators can then quarantine and block devices from connecting to the network if they are downloading malicious files.
