UTM Endpoint: Client for Apple / Mac
Have the ability to have Macintosh Endpoint Protection Clients
Provide an endpoint client for Mac OS which can be managed by UTM 9 as Windows operating system can.
We are not planning on adding support for Mac Endpoints to the UTM Managed Endpoints.
Sophos are really limiting their prospective clients with this and also alienating their existing one. The fact that a 'home user' can download a Sophos Mac anti-virus product for free but businesses with UTM's can't buy it......... Seriously something wrong with your business model!!!

We're a school with an SG-450 deployment. We have more macs than Windows PCs and as you have the endpoint software for Mac, I don't see the issue.
The lack of this feature will steer us on our imminent AV renewal to use another product that may not be Sophos. Having this feature, which we're quite happy to pay for, built into the SG-450 would ensure we stay in the fold because we're not unhappy with Sophos AV and it is so much easier for us to manage.

I will need it, too. So i don't have to use Norton Antivirus anymore...
This was suggested over 2 years ago.
It has got enough votes now to be in the top 20 feature requests, but not a single comment from anyone at Sophos.
Please strongly consider this feature. Thank you.

we need also this Feature.
we need this Feature asap.
currently testing UTM 9.2 in a small (x25) Mac environment... really happy with the product thus far. BUT... just hit a major wall. No MAC endpoint client.
As the Mac client was available for update on the Enterprise Console and I have now upgraded a client to UTM (after considerable pushing from Sophos) I find the downgrading of services quite appalling.
Is there a fix in the works?
that would be great
According to this post, there are no plans to support Macs with Endpoint Protection. :-(
I read somewhere that this was going to be in version 9.2, which is currently in beta. Can anyone confirm?
