important

ESET Endpoint Antivirus for macOS requires user consent settings to function. These settings need to be manually applied after the installation. Your device must be enrolled in MDM to avoid adding user consent settings to each computer. MDM will then be used to distribute configuration profiles to target computers. If you do not apply these settings before installation, users will receive multiple pop-up dialogues urging them to apply user consent settings manually. We recommend distributing configuration profiles before the ESET Endpoint Antivirus for macOS installation.
