What's New in E84.70 for macOS

Show / Hide this section

New Features

  • Support for Macs with M1 chip.
    • Rosetta 2 translator must be installed.
    • Media Encryption blade internally uses FUSE, which is a 3rd party kernel extension. Apple is gradually introducing new alternatives to kernel extensions but in macOS BigSur, Apple recognizes FUSE as a supported kernel extension type. On Apple M1, to allow FUSE (just like any other 3rd party kernel extensions), the Security Policy needs to be “Reduced Security”. A Managed Mac purchased via Apple business or school manager programs, does not require “Reduced Security”. See Change Startup Disk Security Settings and Deployment Reference in macOS.
  • Firefox and Safari on MAC extensions now support the URL-Filtering capabilities. The admin can define URL categories to block and the users are blocked when they try to access URLs that belong to these categories. The feature supports Safari browser 14 and above. 
  • Anti-Malware now reduces the performance impact on the machine when the Mac is actively in use. As soon as the user touches the keyboard, mouse or trackpad, any scheduled scan runs at a reduced speed. 
  • The Self-Protection feature prevents the deletion of Check Point files and the termination of Check Point processes by end-users. In this release, the self-protection feature is disabled by default and in EA quality. See sk171012 for more details.
  • Software Deployment capabilities: In order to ease future EPS version upgrades, reducing dependency on MDMs and dedicated-scripts, this version can be upgraded to future versions using the Endpoint Management. In addition, you can upgrade to a GA build from EA builds of this version. This feature is EA quality, and is supported starting from the R81.10 version of the Management Server. See the Known Limitations section for more details.

Enhancements

  • This release includes stability, quality and performance fixes.
