what are you using as Antivirus on Mac Machines? And how to control it? Will Mac be supported by KES oder KAV soon?
We currently use clamxav and McAfee VirusScan. ClamXAV is free but very slow.
Last year i wrote a forum post howto install and scan using clamxav and kaseya (community.kaseya.com/.../50331.aspx). I haven't updated it but it may still work.
I haven't created a script to monitor McAfee VirusScan yet but i will look into that next week. Stay tuned.
KAV will support in near future OSX
Hi, any news on monitoring mac AV? We need any antivirus monitored here for a cutomer on mac.
Same as above - any news?
There is no current ETA to provide AV support for OSX outside of deploying an off-the-shelf solution with Agent Procedures.
Why do you Mac guys want AV anyway? Don't you guys usually say that Macs don't get viruses?
We continue to pickup more clients who have some Macs on their networks. Politically speaking, it is becomig more and more of a problem that we cannot provide any AV protection.
Does anyone know if there is any news on mac AV?
Kaspersky supports Macs and we'll look to adopt it as part of the KAV / security module integration. No timeframe yet as we need the management APIs to do so which are due out Q2 of 2012.
Great News. Its been a gap in our service offerings for too long.
Thanks for the update Jeff. I agree with @Curtis, that is good news. Please keep pushing for this feature for us. As always - the sooner the better!
@Jeff: Any updates here? In the past days two ugly things came up ... OSX/Sabpab-A and LuckyCat! So we have to preotect our Mac-Customers! Urgent!
When I asked about this at Kaseya Connect, the response was basically "not this year." It sounded like the earliest that we would see KAV for Mac is Kaseya 6.5 - which puts it into 2013 (bummer.)
It was also suggested that with 6.5 (I don't think it was 6.4) that KAV, KES, and KAM would all be rolled together into a single module that would manage all three.
I suppose it's within the realm of possibility that the recent spate of Mac malware lights a fire under the KAV-Mac-Dev-behind.... but it didn't sound too promising for 2012.
did you have any workaround in use?
We just picked a client with 90% MACs! We need this functionality asap.
