Release announcement: ESET Endpoint Antivirus/Security for Mac 6.10.300.1 - macOS Big Sur compatibility

Authors list

Let me please inform you that  we're releasing ESET Endpoint Antivirus/Security 6.10.300.1  

We're working also on macOS 11 compatible ESET Cloud Administrator Live Installer and we expect to be available within 2 days (14-15 October 2020).

I'd like to mention again some points, which you could overlook:

  • This version will work on macOS 10.15 Catalina and older, with all the features fully functional, the incompatibility will only affect macOS 11 Big Sur.
  • Feature not available on macOS Big Sur are:
    • Web Access Protection (Email client protection)
    • Web Control
    • Firewall
    • Device Control
  • If a customer will update to macOS Big Sur and will have version 6.10 without all the features, he'll be informed about this situation (in GUI & ESMC) with a link to KB: https://techcenter.eset.nl/en/news/posts/eset-support-of-macos-big-sur-11 
  • We're working on missing features and will introduce them in new releases as soon as possible
