Added support for Apple M1 processors, with the following protection modules:

  • Antimalware
  • Device Control
  • Content Control

Support for other features on Apple M1 will be added in time.

 

Note: 

  • This version of Endpoint Security for Mac has universal binaries and runs natively on both Intel and Apple M1 architectures. In case of existing installations on systems running macOS versions older than Big Sur (11.x), you must first update them to the intermediary version 4.15.139.200139. This will enable migration to the new update location for product versions with universal binaries.
  • This version does not install on OS X El Capitan (10.11), following the Bitdefender announcement regarding the end of support for this operating system. We advise you to upgrade the operating system to a supported version to benefit from the latest Bitdefender protection technologies.

Resolved Issues

General

  • Installing the macOS kit (Apple M1) on machines with M1 processors prompted endpoint users to install Rosetta as well.
  • The product failed to connect to Bitdefender cloud services due to an internal issue.

Graphical User Interface

  • The application top menu was not displayed when launching Endpoint Security for Mac from the dock.
  • Events sorting in the History section was not performed by date after making actions such as resizing columns.
