How Are Policies Implemented?

The CloudGen Access app runs in user space, and, as such, relies on system-supported APIs that implement non-kernel access to the attribute information. In particular, in the case of disk encryption, firewall, screen lock, and anti-virus policies, the CloudGen Access app relies on the following specific APIs:

  • Windows Security Center (WSC) in the case of Windows apps – third-party firewall and anti-virus software must be compliant
  • IOKit for iOS and macOS
  • DevicePolicyManager for Android apps.

The RootBeer library for Android is used for detecting jailbroken devices. For iOS, rootkits are verified by checking for certain files and known apps, as well as whether the file system may be accessed outside of the app sandbox.

Finally, for detecting an outdated OS version, semantic versioning is compared with the version that the system administrator selects.
