New additions to the Firewall policy

expand collapsive

When it comes to security, Firewall is undoubtedly one of Apple’s most used features. Here at Hexnode UEM, we make it a point that all our policies are regularly updated to encompass every possible configuration. We are pleased to announce the addition of two new configurations to our Firewall policy.

They are:

  • Allow incoming connections to built-in software
  • Allow incoming connections to downloaded signed software

Enabling these options will permit apps and services (both built-in and downloaded) that are signed by a valid certificate authority to receive incoming connections through the firewall.

This enhancement allows IT admins to configure Firewall settings on macOS devices in a more customizable manner.

Please refer to our help document on Firewall policy for a detailed explanation of the newly added options. Feel free to reach out to us in case of any queries.

Best regards,
Chloe Edison
