Note: Sophos Endpoint Defense will install on systems running Sophos Update Manager with the release of Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 10.8.4. However, enhanced tamper protection will not be enabled on these systems if set in policy.
The Sophos Endpoint Defense installer will skip the installation if Sophos Update Manager is detected. No errors will be reported.
