OPSWAT Certified Security Applications Program

Our program certifies endpoint security applications on compatibility, quality, efficacy of threat protection and remediation. All certified vendors receive badges to showcase that their applications are powerful, reliable, and efficient.

Compatibility Test

Application compatibility is important when trying to access a network. Without certified compatibility, users risk being denied access and administrators must write policy exceptions. Our certification program ensures CASB, NAC, SSL-VPN, and SSO compatibility with the top market leading access control solutions from vendors such as Palo Alto NetworksCiscoCitrix, and many others, covering over 200 million endpoints. 

False Positive Test

False positives are an important issue in any sector of security and need to be reduced. False positives can reduce customer satisfaction, create hours of work for IT administrators and prevent important files from reaching recipients.

Our certification program assesses the vendor's ability to collect suspicious data and react to false positive submissions to prevent unnecessary waste of administrator's time and resources. Vendors should verify their applications' ability to log, report, and effectively address false positives in anti-malware applications.

OPSWAT testing includes information on the type of feedback channels available to document false positive submissions and vendor reaction time to a false positive submission.

Anti-Malware Quality Test

OPSWAT has partnered with AV-TEST, AV-Comparatives, Virus Bulletin, SE Labs, SKD Labs and ICSA Labs to test the performance, protection, and usability of anti-malware applications. All OPSWAT Gold Certified applications must have high test scores from one OR more of these leading testing institutes in order to be eligible for OPSWAT Gold Badges. 

Our partnerships showcase anti-malware applications' ability to protect against emerging threats and endpoints in real time. We also provide information on performance efficiency and usability.
