This Early Access Program allows customers to test endpoint features running natively on Apple M1 (ARM) hardware with Big Sur.
Once you join the Early Access Program, your Apple M1 devices will run some features of the endpoint natively rather than in emulation, we will add more native support as we move through the EAP to General Availability (GA).
Note: Not all macOS features will be supported natively as part of the EAP and we may close the EAP with some features still running in emulation, this means that Rosetta 2 will still be required after we make support generally available.
The following steps will provide a short overview about how to setup the Sophos Endpoint Client. Please be aware that this setup is for the EAP and is supported through the Sophos Community only.
Now that you have enrolled in the EAP you’ll need to go through a few steps to register your Mac Endpoints into the program.
Be aware that an endpoint will not get the EAP software until it’s registered.
Note: This is an EAP and PRODUCTION devices should NOT be enrolled in it.
This will render the correct policy and endpoint software to the target devices.
