The stages include an installation test, a rogue application test and an OESIS® Framework detection test.

"End users expect that they will receive only interoperable solutions from their IT security providers," said Benny Czarny, president and CEO of OPSWAT, Inc. "The OESISOK certification program ensures that customers are using endpoint security solutions that are both identified and classified correctly by devices"
