How do I integrate MetaAccess to my VMware Unified Access Gateway solution?

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 Threat Detection - Utilizing two methods of advanced threat detection, MetaAccess helps identify potential threats that existing anti-malware software might not protect against.

  • Portable media scanning and access control - MetaAccess protects organizations against threats from portable media on the endpoints, a common attack vector for malware
