MetaAccess can be leveraged by VMware Unified Access Gateway (UAG) 3.1+ and Horizon clients 7.3.1+ for Windows and macOS. Now VMware Unified Access Gateway provides enhanced compliance checking capabilities for Horizon Client access to virtual desktops and RDS hosted applications. Learn more about this integration.
By integrating MetaAccess into VMware Unified Access Gateway solutions, administrators are able to check remote devices for:
Vulnerabilities - Detect vulnerabilities on endpoints in installed applications and operating systems.
Enhanced Compliance - Get greater visibility into the status of installed security applications such as hard disk encryption and system information such as password protection to ensure devices are compliant with existing policies.
Unwanted Applications - Detect and remove non-compliant or unwanted applications such as peer-to-peer applications from a remote device.
Advanced Threats - Utilizing two methods of advanced threat detection, MetaAccess helps identify potential threats that existing anti-malware software might not protect against.

The Horizon Endpoint Compliance feature with OPSWAT MetaAccess is currently supported for VMware native Horizon clients for Windows and MacOS. With HTML Access, no policy check is made.However, there is a separate global policy for HTML Access ( the option "Disable HTML Access" in the Horizon Edge Service settings) to either fully allow, or fully deny access.
If your devices or your UAG sit behind a firewall or a proxy, you need to whitelist some domains to make sure UAG and devices able to talk to OPSWAT MetaAccess. See more details at How do I configure MetaAccess agent to work with a proxy or outbound firewall?
