We have been working with Apple on support for macOS Ventura, testing the beta builds and providing feedback to Apple. We have now received the Release Candidate build and will support for macOS Ventura with Sophos Endpoint Protection version 10.4.1 which is already available in early access. Sophos Central endpoint customers will be automatically upgraded to this version starting the week of October 24, 2022.

Currently, there is a high severity issue when upgrading devices to macOS Ventura that are not managed by an MDM solution, with Sophos Endpoint Protection already installed. New installations are not affected by this issue. If you do decide to upgrade, please see the knowledge base article link below for workarounds and additional information.

If you would like to prevent end users from upgrading to macOS Ventura you can add an Application Control entry to prevent the upgrade. You will find an entry for “macOS 13” under System Tools within the Application Control policy. Documentation covers the process of creating/editing this policy: https://docs.sophos.com/central/customer/help/en-us/ManageYourProducts/EndpointProtection/ConfigureAppControl/index.html

Apple has now acknowledged the Full Disk Access issue in both Ventura 13.0 and Ventura 13.1 release notes, no timeline on a fix though
