1: OPSWAT Client has different flavors and supports different features on each operating system. You can learn more details here.

2: MetaDefender Client detects installed applications with compliance state. Administrators couldn't define security policies to assess risks on devices

3: OPSWAT Client only has a tray icon and dialogs to show system information and actions. Scan progress is shown on the tray icon menu.

4: Another alternative solution for standalone mode: OPSWAT Media Validation Agent is a lightweight tool which ensures that no media can be mounted if it has not been first processed by MetaDefender Kiosk.

Note: with OPSWAT Client, administrators have more visibility on what a user has done on a device with USB, they can see scan reports and scan progress from the console
