Verify particular software is not a trojan on Linux


Dear Linux users,

I got a question:​

I have a user in my company that uses http://cloudport.xyz/ service to access our network from outside.

This thing generates you a binary you run on your machine, but how could I know this is not a trojan or virus? Any way to check it? It says "no configuration required". But should I trust it? Any tools for Linux that check binaries for viruses? I already checked it with ClamAV, and ClamAV said it's OK... Is it enough?

Thank you! :)
