Managing Microsoft SCEP / ESET Cyber Security for Mac

I've been willing to write a blog post about Microsoft SCEP for some time, but Neil Martin already did, and there's nothing left for me to add. Yet ;-)

If you’re using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) to deal with Windows machines in your environment, you may notice that it comes licensed with an antivirus/malware product; Endpoint Protection (SCEP), with versions for Windows, Linux and macOS.

While only supports 10.6 - 10.12, we had some success forcing the installation and testing with a sample EICAR virus file. I wouldn't recommend this on production environment and would encourage you to ping your Microsoft rep. ESET Cyber Security for Mac is compatible with 10.13, so it should arrive someday soon.

  • Part 1 - Changing global settings with scep_set
  • Part 2 - Reading the logs
  • Part 3 - User-specific GUI preferences

Note: Some of this might translate to ESET using `esets_set`.

Note2: I'm not endorsing the use of this software.

Thank you Neil for your hard work!
