4.1. MetaAccess APIs

This is your reference for taking advantage of MetaAccess APIs within your environment. Be sure to refer to the 146507757 as well as the terms and conditions as you develop your applications. Check back often as our APIs are growing to accommodate our user community as well as our platform.

Our Cloud APIs allow developers to easily integrate the data available through our cloud platform into your own applications. This data includes

  1. endpoint details such as device information (Host name, Device ID, MAC/IP Address,...)

  2. device security and compliance status, such as Antivirus, Anti-phishing, Public File Sharing, and Malware detection as well as account information.

These APIs can be used to provide authentication and enforcement via a Secure Access solution (SSL VPN, NAC, etc) or can be integrated into a Remote Monitoring and Management platform for expansive visibility into the endpoints under management. The options are unlimited.

To work with our APIs, you can follow the below steps:

Implement your application

MetaAccess leverages OAuth 2.0* technology, so you should be familiar with the OAuth 2.0 specifications and general flow to ensure that your application is capable of supporting the MetaAccess APIs.

To help you get started with the MetaAccess APIs, we have developed extensive documentation and sample applications. Click here to read more about how to implement with the APIs or to download the sample code.

*OAuth 2.0 is an open protocol used by OPSWAT for authorization of access to resources within our platform. You can read more about OAuth 2.0 here.
