WatchGuard EPDR earns OPSWAT Certificate as Gold Anti-Malware

WatchGuard has obtained OPSWAT's GOLD distinctive insignia as a certified provider, demonstrating that its applications are powerful, reliable, and efficient.

Products that receive the OPSWAT GOLD certification, such as WatchGuard EPDR, are highly compatible with the industry's leading NAC and SSL-VPN solutions, such as Citrix Access Gateway, Juniper Host Checker, F5 FirePass, etc. Gold-certified products can be detected by these solutions, and some remediation and evaluation actions are supported.

OPSWAT recommends that app security application providers find out more about the OPSWAT certification program and that they certify the latest versions of their products before they are launched. Additionally, IT administrators can use the list of OPSWAT-certified security applications as a resource before purchasing a security solution.

Cristina Stet, Certification Manager at OPSWAT, states that “WatchGuard EPDR is helping organizations and MSPs to pave the way for endpoint security, including Endpoint Protection and EDR. We're delighted to award the GOLD certification for compatibility with the industry leading NAC, CASB, SSO, and SSL-VPN solutions."

WatchGuard EPDR is a cybersecurity solution that combines Endpoint Protection (EPP) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) with the Zero-Trust Application Service and Threat Hunting Service, all in a single, lightweight agent. The combination of these solutions and services provides detailed visibility of all activity on all endpoints, total control of every running process, and a reduced attack surface.

WatchGuard EPDR implements the conception of the Zero-Trust application model thanks to its unique ability to monitor, classify and categorize absolutely all active processes on all the computers on the corporate network. As such, if someone tries to perform any action, we will know instantly. We will also find out where it is coming from, how they tried to do it, and what they intended to do. What's more, WatchGuard advanced security solutions’ response and remediation capabilities allow them to autonomously react even before threats cause damage.

It's also important to remember modules created specifically to manage operating systems and hundreds of applications patches, such as WatchGuard Patch Management.
