This release includes support for Standalone E80.71 Endpoint Security VPN client and E80.71 Capsule Docs Mac Clients.

The managed E80.71 Endpoint Security Client for Mac is available with support for FileVault with local users only. Using fileVault with mobile network accounts can lead to deletion of the Personal Recovery Key which in this case can cause data loss. To get the managed Client, contact Check Point Support.

Check Point is working with Apple to solve the FileVault limitation and will update upon resolution.

What's New in E80.71 for Mac

Show / Hide this section
This release adds these new features:

macOS High Sierra (10.13) support for the Endpoint Security client

  • 10.13.1 or higher is required.
  • macOS High Sierra (10.13) introduces a new feature that requires user approval before loading http://goo.gl/Yq4dYm. This means that to fully activate Endpoint Security, the user must after installing the client, open 'System Preferences > Security & Privacy' and approve system extensions from Check Point.
  • After installing the Endpoint Security client blades: Media Encryption, Firewall, and Capsule Docs, this message shows:
    System Extension Blocked.
    A program tried to load new system extension(s) signed by "Check Point Software Technologies". If you want to enable these extensions, open Security & Privacy System Preferences.

New Native Encryption Management

  • Encryption management based on FileVault, the native OS encryption from Apple.
  • Upgrade gives a seamless migration to the new Native Encryption Management. The disk is encrypted at all times.
  • Support for seamless in-place OS upgrade to macOS High Sierra (10.13).
  • You can help users recover FileVault-encrypted data if they can¬ít log in to their Mac. You can help users recover their data or reset their password using a personal recovery key that is unique to the client computer. Alternatively, the administrator can use an institutional recovery key to recover data on a Mac that is deployed with this key.

Remote Access VPN

  • Support for Split DNS (disabled by default).

Media Encryption and Media Encryption Offline Tool

  • Check Point CryptoCore 4.0 is used instead of OpenSSL, which is deprecated by Apple.
