AGENT CHANGES IN MAC WEB THREAT SHIELD PLUGIN BUILD 1.2.0.82 -  June 19th 2017

OVERVIEW
Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection already features several protection layers, including the ability to detect and block malicious and known phishing URLs. In an upcoming release, we will be upgrading all Mac endpoint agents for our business customers, at no cost, to latest version of our new Web Threat Shield.

These updates lay important groundwork for Mac policy management and will bring agent functionality across Mac and Windows endpoints into parity.

WHAT TO EXPECT Browser extensions will be released globally, and individual endpoints will be updated as they check in. No action is required on your behalf.

PLEASE NOTIFY YOUR CLIENTS:
They will experience a visible impact. Safari, Chrome, and Firefox will initiate activities that notify end-users of the new extension.
MORE DETAIL

User Experience
When the agent checks in with the console and downloads the update, the user will briefly see a Webroot SecureAnywhere message indicating the component installation has begun.
 


This message should clear itself automatically.

Browser Prompts
The security precautions built in to Mac-specific browsers mean Mac users will receive a prompt to confirm the new web filtering extension. When they receive the update, browsers will automatically initiate this prompt.

Google Chrome
The Chrome message is purely informational. No action necessary. This page can be closed.



Safari
Users must click Trust to install and enable the updated web filtering extensions. If they click Cancel, the extension will be installed, but disabled.



The Extensions window will remain open. Once the user clicks Trust, they can close the Extensions window.


Mozilla Firefox
Firefox will download the new web extension silently. Following the update, the first time the user launches the browser, Firefox will prompt them to install the new extension.



If Firefox is open while the extension is being downloaded, the browser will not prompt the user to install the new extension until the next time they launch Firefox.

Webroot Prompt
Once the component has been installed on all browsers, the Webroot SecureAnywhere agent will briefly display a message to indicate the update process has completed.

Introduction

As part of our continuing Mac parity development we are releasing a new Agent build 9.0.1.27 on the 11th of April, which will help us move further towards providing Mac OS parity with our MS Windows endpoint security visibility and management.
  1. NEW - Enhanced agent data reporting to cloud – Agent status will now be sent up upon the action of one or more triggers.

    These triggers will match PC triggers where applicable. The result of this change is that updated agent status values are now sent more regularly, as previously these values were only sent when the UI was opened. (In some business environments that might not happen often, or in some cases ever.)
  2. NEW - Enhanced speed of scan start – This simply mean that Mac endpoint scans now start much faster and noticeably so over the current version.
  3. UPDATE - Hardened machine identification – In a very few cases the Mac serial was not available in the console. This feature enables an identification to take place and the Mac to be identified.
  4. UPDATE - Updated settings text string for clarity – We have changed the text from "Scan for Windows threats” to “Also scan for Windows threats.”
