Data Protection for Mac OS is Here!

By on Dec 16, 2013

I’m pretty psyched to see McAfee releasing its latest Device Control version that supports Mac OS X Lion, OS X Mountain Lion, and OS X Mavericks.  This makes McAfee one of the first enterprise DLP vendors to offer removable media data protection on Mac OS X.

The software is a plug-in for McAfee Agent for Mac, which will be installed on client computers prior to deploying McAfee DLP Endpoint and Device Control software.  Removable storage device rules are supported using device definitions supporting universal properties such as USB, as well as Mac OS X-specific properties.  The removable storage device definitions now can support Mac OS X-only, Microsoft Windows -only, or both.

The best part is that this new feature is offered to current McAfee DLP Endpoint or McAfee Device Control customers at no additional cost!

Before you begin, verify that:

• You have installed McAfee Agent (MA) for Mac version 4.6 Patch 3 or later on all Mac endpoint computers

• Mac OS X versions are the supported versions: OS X Lion 10.7.5 or later, OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.0 or later, or OS X Mavericks 10.9.0

The preferred installation method for McAfee Device Control for Mac is deployment with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator(ePO).
