Since there are not predefined checks available for Mac OS X levels (I hope this comes soon) - is there any method that could enforce Mac OS X 10.7 and above (essentially 10.7 and 10.8)? I am running 7.2R6 on MAG equipment.
The custom Host Checker policies for Mac can check if a process is running and the existance of a file (and ports). Is there a viable method to enforce 10.7 and up using these checks? I am not a Mac expert, but I have not been able to find a way. The closest I've gotten to is enforcing 10.4 and up requiring a couple different processes, but this is not good enough for our security requirements.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated. I don't necessarily want to do much to end client (ie installing more than necessary), but would certainly be open to ideas.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for the reply, I have requested for the feature add. I agree checking for processes is not a viable solution.
Given the pre-defined checks for Mac OS levels is not immediately available, I continue to search for options. I have some pressure to find a solution quickly to detect the Mac endpoints OS version so a user group can utilize their endpoints. Are there any options/alternatives others have tested or are using?
