Configuration Profiles

What allowed extensions or filters are needed to enable McAfee endpoint products to successfully protect your Mac depends on what version of macOS you are running. McAfee provides sample configuration profiles (in the KB links below) that you can directly import or use for inspiration in building your own. It doesn’t hurt to use the same profiles on multiple OS versions as the older OS versions will just ignore what doesn’t apply. All configuration profiles are required for successful use of McAfee endpoint products on Mac.

Note to Mac Admins: Bundle IDs for Extensions (System or Kernel) need to be explicitly defined in Big Sur. Please view the KB links below for the bundle IDs.

Note to Jamf Pro Admins: Uploading a System Extension config profile is currently broken (PI-008562). You will have to create and populate the system extension profile yourself. Click here for an example screen shot.
