Certified Security Application Program[edit]

OPSWAT certifies endpoint security applications for compatibility, false positives, and quality. The program enables CASB (cloud access security broker[when defined as?]), Network Access Control, virtual private network through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL VPN), and single sign-on compatibility on access controls from vendors like Palo Alto Networks, Cisco, and Citrix. Compatibility ensures that applications can be detected, classified, and displayed from over 2 million endpoints in a network administrator's management console. The program partnered with AV-TEST and AV-Comparatives to ensure high test scores for gold certification status starting in August 2016. [6][7]
