Mac OS 12 Monterey

Hello,

just to be sure because the new MacOS Monterey will be released this year, is there a roadmap that Sophos will be compatible with the coming OS (in time)?

Will be a EAP available for the MSP Partners ?

Thanks and Regards

  • Phil,

    We have started initial testing with Monterey and it looks like we should be able to support it at GA. It looks like it is an evolution of Big Sur rather than the revolution that Big Sur was. 

    We have changed EAPs now so that MSP customers have access to them provided it does not add licensed features, clearly, the previous BIG Sur EAP and the current M1 EAP do not and so access is available.

    At this stage we may not need to do an EAP for Monterey, we wouldn't normally do an EAP for a new macOS variant but did for Big Sur due to the scale of the change.

    Darren.

  • Hi Darren,

    We need a supported version of Sophos before the release of Monterey. Sophos wasn't ready for Big Sur and Apple Silicon for months this has damaged the position of Sophos for Mac environments.

    I'm currently running Beta 2 and Sophos is a real pain. System is flooded with Crash Reports for SophosDeviceControlD. I've created the diagnose file: fbf79015-2610-449a-b846-1cf5b531308f_2021-07-13-22-00-50.zip.

    Sending out a supported version for Monterey after the GA release would be really bad.
