What is the OPSWAT Client?

The OPSWAT Client is a lightweight, unobtrusive application which runs on every machine that is being managed by your account on either MetaAccess or OPSWAT Central Management v7. The agent transmits the machine's security status to the servers and receives commands from the servers in order to resolve any issues with the machine.The OPSWAT Client gets installed on a machine by an installer package (.msi file for Windows; .dmg file for macOS; .rpm or .deb for Linux; .apk for Android; .ipa for iOS) or is run on-demand. The installer package has the same features and behavior as a typical installer package of the same type i.e. you will need administrator level credentials to install it on the local machine, you can apply it remotely using any of the domain controller group policy features that support dissemination and remote installation of applications, etc. You can check out more details here.Once installed or running, information collected by OPSWAT Client will start to appear in the MetaAccess console available by logging in at www.gears.opswat.com or your OPSWAT Central Management v7.
