Hello everyone. 

I’ve been deploying KES 11 in my company, but there’s something I got to ask: Does KES applies for MacOS computers? Is there a way to install KES on Macs like we do for Windows clients? 

So far I’ve just installed the agent on those and I can’t find a way for KES. Maybe there is not a way but I’d love some experience over here. 

 

Thanks in regard.

Hello Emil,

 

Hope you are well. You can deploy KES for Mac remotely via installation task or locally from the dmg file. The network agent for Mac must be installed locally first however before you are able to remotely deploy the KES for Mac. 

This is because there are only two methods of remote installation from the Security Center console. “using network agent” or “using windows resources”. Since it’s a Mac OSX, that rules the second option out and you must install the agent locally to use the network agent.

Here are some helpful links;

The KES for Mac would use the same license as your windows devices, so no additional cost there.
