When IT software and services company EPAM Systems needed to protect critical infrastructure to best serve hundreds of Fortune 1000 customers, it chose the Opswat MetaAccess platform for both on-prem and cloud assets.

EPAM Systems provides digital platform engineering and software development services to solve its clients business-critical challenges worldwide, alongside the rise in remote working and need to manage global projects.

"The MetaAccess platform reported devices with unpatched applications or blocked access of devices with critical vulnerabilities of operating systems or third party applications, such as Adobe, Apple, and others," the company said.

"[It] reported non-compliant devices and configured some policies with self-remediations: for example, the status of antimalware definitions—non-compliant device protection to ensure devices are compliant with existing policies."

EPAM reports achieving comprehensive secure access for all its remote workers and clients across 45,000 remote devices.

The firm needed an integrated security solution for zero-trust networks that provides secure access to digital assets on the premises as well as in public and private clouds.

Other benefits of Opswat MetaAccess

"[Opswat] MetaAccess continuously detects, blocks and disables unwanted applications such as peer-to-peer applications, browser plugins, and unauthorised remote access tools," it said.

MetaAccess also continuously scans device memory using more than 20 anti-malware engines via Opswat's MetaDefender Cloud platform -- giving the highest rate of detection and blocking of endpoints from malware not detected by local anti-malware applications.

Opswat delivers visibility, control, and compliance of every EPAM device across all employees and third-party contractors prior to network and application access. The company uses both multi-scanning and deep CDR (content disarm and reconstruction) technologies from Opswat to help protect against the loss of sensitive or confidential information.
