Applies to: Sophos Home Premium and Free (MacOs Beta only)
Sophos Home is compatible with the latest stable versions of MacOS. Using a non-stable/beta version may trigger unexpected issues. Please, see Related information at the bottom of this article for the exact system requirements for installing Sophos Home on a Mac computer.
Note: Catalina 10.15 beta users please keep in mind that we are aware of an issue that prevents the antivirus to connect to the Dashboard - There is no current workaround, we do not recommend installing Sophos Home on Catalina Beta at this time
What does Sophos Home recommend for MacOS beta users
New MacOS beta versions may add changes to the system which may render applications unusable until said changes are made available to developers for review/problem fix. As such, we do not typically support beta versions, however, we welcome any feedback customers may have regarding latest betas and changes to behavior (which can be reported via your Sophos Home Dashboard ).
If customers wish to join the beta program for MacOS, we recommend that they perform a full backup of their Mac so that a rollback can be done if issues are encountered.
Please, keep in mind that beta versions are not stable and may introduce new issues / changes that can affect software functionality, including Sophos Home's ability to properly work with the Mac.
