About OPSWAT OESIS Framework and Gears
OESIS Framework is a cross platform SDK that enables software engineers and technology vendors to develop products for securing and managing endpoints through detecting, classifying, assessing and managing thousands of third-party software applications. The extensive functionality of this robust framework gives solutions the ability to perform detailed endpoint assessment and management on Windows, Mac, Linux, and mobile devices. OESIS enables solutions to gather comprehensive contextual intelligence by providing device information and detecting and managing many different application types like antivirus, firewall applications, backup clients, antiphishing software, hard disk encryption and more.
Gears allows IT administrators to monitor and manage multiple device types and numerous application types. While most network monitoring solutions utilize Windows Security Center and WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) to provide limited, Windows-only application status information, Gears utilizes OPSWAT’s OESIS Framework, a development toolkit that enables detection, assessment and remediation of Mac OSX and Windows third party applications, to provide much more extensive and detailed information.
“With this innovative technology, our Gears and OESIS Framework solutions detect and report encryption state of the physical disk in a very dynamic and elegant way regardless of which product is used to do the encryption. It brings the ability of validating data encryption compliance to the next level.” -Jianpeng Mo, Director of Software Engineering, OPSWAT
“This innovative technology, as implemented in Gears and OESIS Framework, strengthens OPSWAT position as the industry leader in providing for endpoint compliance solutions to enterprises and OEM partners.” -Tom Mullen, Sr. VP of Business Development, OPSWAT
