What is the Metadefender Endpoint?

The Metadefender Endpoint is a lightweight, unobtrusive application which runs on every machine that is being managed by your Metadefender Endpoint Management account. The Metadefender Endpoint transmits the machine's security status to the Cloud and receives commands from the Cloud in order to resolve any issues with the machine.

 
The Metadefender Endpoint gets installed on a machine by a Metadefender Endpoint installer package (.msi file for Windows; .dmg file for Mac; .rpm or .deb for Linux; .apk for Android; .ipa for iOS) or is run on-demand. The installer package has the same features and behavior as a typical installer package of the same type i.e. you will need administrator level credentials to install it on the local machine, you can apply it remotely using any of the domain controller group policy features that support dissemination and remote installation of applications, etc.  
 
The various client packages are available in the Metadefender Endpoint Management Console via the "+ Devices" button.
 
Once installed or running, information collected by Metadefender Endpoint will start to appear in the Metadefender Endpoint Management console available by logging in at www.gears.opswat.com
