OPSWAT Client for Endpoint Vulnerability and Application Patching

Out-of-date applications can contain critical vulnerabilities that make your devices more susceptible to cyberattack. They present a risk that your personal information can be compromised or result in data breaches for your organization. OPSWAT Client is here to help mitigate such risks using our market leading technologies and is FREE for all.

Quickly, OPSWAT Client can detect risky applications and provide remediation options (if applicable) to resolve potential security issues. Our user interface will guide users to understand and remediate the issues.

OPSWAT Client helps you to identify and remediate:

  • If your device is running any vulnerable applications
  • If your device is running any out-of-date applications

Additional checks are done automatically, and an alert report will be displayed via your web browser if the client detects issues, such as:

  • Your anti-malware protection is not configured properly
  • Your hard disk is not encrypted
  • Your operating system is not up to date
  • Your device is infected by malware
  • Your device has not been backed up correctly

    Follow the steps below to start using OPSWAT Client and make sure your device is up to date and secure.

    Step 1. Download and Install OPSWAT Client

    1. Click here to download an installer for your Windows device.

    2. Open a Windows Explorer window and navigate to the folder that contains the OPSWAT Client installer you just downloaded.

    3. Double-click the installer file. The installation wizard will appear. Follow instructions on the wizard to install OPSWAT Client.

    4. To confirm that OPSWAT Client is running, click the Show Hidden Icons arrow and look for the () OPSWAT Client icon in the system.

    5. The OPSWAT Client will launch the user interface (UI) after installation is complete.

    Step 2. Review at-risk applications

    You can launch the OPSWAT Client UI by clicking on "Open OPSWAT Client" option from the tray icon's menu.

    Alternatively, you can launch the OPSWAT Client from the Windows Start Menu.

    From within OPSWAT Client UI, vulnerable and out-of-date applications can be viewed.

    Step 3. Remediate your vulnerable and/or out-of-date applications

    You can update out-of-date applications by selecting the applications and clicking on the "Update" option. OPSWAT Client will update the selected applications to the newest version it finds and will notify you when it has completed.

    For vulnerable applications, you may choose to update them (if an update is available) or choose to uninstall them. OPSWAT Client will take care of that even if the application is broken. By selecting the "Uninstall" option, OPSWAT Client will try to remove the applications and their related components. The OPSWAT Client may prompt with an uninstall wizard if needed. You should follow the wizard instructions to finish the uninstallation process.

    Aside from being used as a standalone client, users may register (for free!) with our cloud service MetaAccess to manage multiple devices and gain additional features, such as:
