How to protect managed Eset products from uninstalling on MAC?

Recommended Posts


Eset endpoint security for MAC (latest version) is installed, which is managed by remote administrator.

User has root privileges.

How would you protect the agent+product from uninstalling?

That's a good question.

In the AV policy under Tools > Privileges, there are options for 'Privileged groups' and 'Privileged users' which is similar to the password protection option for Windows clients.

Presumably if root has not been added there, it will not have permissions to modify ESET.

You would obviously need to have an admin group (that excludes root) or another local admin account in lieu of root.

I don't believe there are any protections for the agent, though.  Hopefully someone from ESET support can clarify.
