Sophos For Mac Catalina

Version 9.10.2

New features

Support for macOS 11 Big Sur.

Apple has released macOS version 10.15 (Catalina) on the 11th of October 2019. SafeGuard version 8.20.0 and previous versions of SafeGuard Disk Encryption and File Encryption for Mac, do not support this new Operating System and may not function correctly. In July 2017, security researcher Partick Wardle presented a vulnerability at DEF-CON about how to perform a privilege escalation attack on MacOS by using 3rd party installers such as Sophos. In the installer for Sophos Central, we have implemented security changes to mitigate this vulnerability.
