Subject: macOS Security Profiles – What to Expect
We are working with Ntiva to improve the security of our devices, data, and team members! To this end, we will soon activate the following macOS security features. These features have been thoroughly tested and approved; however, we want to avoid surprises, so here is what to expect:
- Display Auto-Lock: Your Mac will lock after 15-minutes of inactivity. You must enter your password or Touch ID to unlock.
- Endpoint Protection: SentinelOne will deploy. This software can initially be aggressive as it scans your hard drive to create a baseline profile. After 24 hours, it will settle down and only inspect new and changed files for cyber threats.
- FileVault Encryption: During a reboot, a prompt will appear to enter your Mac password to enable FileVault.
- Firewall: Most people do not notice any change.
- Gatekeeper: Most people do not notice any change.
- Login Window: If you log out, you’ll need to type your Mac username rather than pick it out from a list of accounts to log in.
- Remote Login and Remote Management: Most people do not notice any change.
Of course, if you discover any issues or have questions, please reach out to Ntiva’s Service Desk for assistance, EMAILSUPPORTADDRESS.
