Summary

McAfee is committed to supporting the macOS and is working closely with Apple to ensure that McAfee security software and hardware products are fully compatible with macOS endpoints.

To ensure release quality, all new releases that Apple publishes for macOS releases require full validation by the individual product teams. The McAfee goal is to add same-day support for all macOS releases over time, for those products that do not currently offer this cadence.

NOTE: Late-breaking changes implemented by Apple to a release, or any unresolved compatibility issues raised by McAfee with Apple around a scheduled release, could lead to schedule changes. We will document any changes in this article.

Based on the earlier communication from Apple regarding the migration of third-party applications to 64-bit, McAfee migrated the products listed under macOS 10.14.x, to 64-bit.

IMPORTANT: McAfee recommends that customers:
  • Upgrade the McAfee products you are using in your environment to their 64-bit version before upgrading the macOS to Mojave.
  • Install the 64-bit versions in High Sierra or Sierra before you upgrade to macOS Mojave.

NOTES:
  • McAfee does not support the co-existence of 32-bit and 64-bit McAfee products. Migration to 64-bit applications is required because of the operating system limitation of not being able to co-exist with 32-bit legacy products. During the migration, there is an impact to local user interface capabilities for some of the 32-bit legacy products as outlined below.
  • When you migrate ENSM from 10.2.3 or 10.5.0 to 10.5.5, the legacy versions of the products listed below will not have any local interface capabilities until they are migrated to the 64-bit version:
    • Management of Native Encryption
    • File and Removable Media Protection
    • Data Loss Prevention
  • ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) manageability does continue for these legacy products. When these products are migrated to their 64-bit versions, the local interface capabilities are restored.
3 Minimum supported versions are the versions available at the time of the macOS release. For clarification on what later versions support this operating system, see the Supported Environments articles.
