Fileserver Encryption support for MacOS Big Sur with M1 ARM Chip


Safeguard Fileserver Encryption Agent does not and will not* support Apple MACs with BigSur with M1 ARM chip.

Is this or if not yet, will it be supported by Sophos Central module / with Intercept-X client? When?

Currently this lack of funtionality pushing us against other vendors with all new purchased MACs.

We need support also for new MACs to access encrypted files on our fileservers.


Note: The service release of SafeGuard Enterprise 8.30.1 supports macOS 10.14, 10.15 as well as 11.0.1 and 11.1 on Intel-based devices. There are currently no plans to add support for ARM-based devices (equipped with Apple's M1 chip) to Sophos SafeGuard.
