2. Administrators can configure OPSWAT Client to delay the collection of compliance data after it starts. This way, it gives other applications time to start before the OPSWAT Client reports compliance data to reduce false-positive detection.

3. Enhancement:

  • Device reports will be put in a queue to be processed against with a policy. The OPSWAT Client will receive a compliance result in the next check-in, up to a minute.

4. Bugs fixed:

  • MetaAccess will not send an unknown devices report if there is no unknown devices found

  • Device was able to enroll to an account even the account limit is reached. The system will change status of a device to Out-of-license-usage if a device was enrolled after the limit reach.

OPSWAT Client

Windows Persistent Client (7.6.259.0)

1. Enhanced the threat scan feature

- cache the scan results within a scan action to avoid re-check the same hash multiple times with MetaDefender servers

- if the account hits a scan limit during a scan process, it will stop the scan and record the file status as skipped in a detailed report.

2. The agent caches the last full scan timestamp of a local anti-malware product. In case, the local anti-malware product is upgraded and its scan history is wiped out, the agent will report the last full scan timestamp from the cache.

3. The client will delay collecting compliance data after it starts with the operating system if the delay setting is configured on the MetaAccess console

4. Updated built-in SDK signature: 4.3.994.0

Known issues:

- Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 devices must install KB2533623 and KB3033929 in order to upgrade to the latest version

- If a user exits the agent tray icon, the agent can’t popup approved actions when a user inserts a portable media

- A user needs to enable Show Notifications on the agent tray icon to see notifications about portable media

- The agent has not supported portable media feature if user 2 logs into a device while user 1 is still logged in

- OPSWAT Client does not support iTunes drive. If a user inserts an iOS device on an endpoint which has iTunes installed, the user will still have access to the phone via iTunes

- OPSWAT Client can't detect mobile devices, the user needs to unplug and plug in the mobile device again
