Endpoint Privilege Management for Mac 23.1 Release Notes

February 28, 2023

New Features and Enhancements:

  • The PM Cloud policy editor has a toggle to enable biometric authentication for messages on macOS endpoints. This is so customers can have granular control of which messages allow Touch ID and which do not.
  • Workstyles and application definitions can be enabled and disabled granularly.
  • Improvements to core components to prevent macOS upgrades to hang or stop during the update screen.
  • There is a patch to the Endpoint Privilege Management for Mac sudo plugin to counteract a sudoedit vulnerability in macOS that could lead to privilege escalation by editing unauthorized files.

Issues Resolved:

  • Added new system preference rules in the QuickStart template because on Ventura some settings weren’t matching and/or triggering authorization messages.
  • Resolved an issue in which users were prompted to enter a PIN even after entering a password, when the authentication type in the policy was set to any with sudo commands.
  • The audit log functionality now rotates, by default, through a separate newsyslog configuration file.
  • Resolved an issue with the authorization message displaying when clicking the TouchID Cancel button.
  • Resolved an issue with the Sourcetree application hanging for users with Endpoint Privilege Management for Mac installed.
  • Resolved an issue with an installation error that displayed when a standard user tried to install Notion using the Endpoint Privilege Management for Mac Finder extension.
  • Resolved an issue with Korean display name not authorizing because the name wasn't recognized.
  • Resolved an issue in which time and date format could become misconfigured, which prevented the BeyondInsight adapter from communicating with the server.
