Installation - G DATA Security Client for Mac
G DATA Security Client for Mac offers centrally managed malware protection and is managed by G DATA ManagementServer, allowing configuration via G DATA Administrator as well as automated, virus signature update distribution.
The installation methods are similar to those of Windows and Linux clients: a remote installation via G DATA Administrator or a local installation using an installation script.
Local installation - G DATA Security Client for Mac
If a remote installation is not possible, you can install G DATA Security Client for Mac locally.
- Start G DATA Administrator, select the Clients panel and choose the option Create installation script for Linux/Mac clients from the Organization menu.
- After you choose a storage location, the script will be created in the background.
- Copy the installation script to the client.
- Open a Terminal window and elevate the user status by typing su and entering the root password. Alternatively, execute the command from step 5 using sudo.
- Navigate to the folder to which you copied the file and execute it: ./install-client.sh -t WS.
- In order to prevent unauthorized access to the ManagementServer, clients that are deployed through a local installation need to be authorized in G DATA Administrator under Clients > Overview before they are fully served.
Remote installation - G DATA Security Client for Mac
The most convenient way to install G DATA Security Client for Mac is to initiate a remote installation through G DATA Administrator. The requirements and the installation procedure are almost identical to the procedure for Linux:
- In the Clients module, select a Mac client, open the Clients menu and select the command Install G DATA Security Client for Linux/Mac.
- Under Client type, select Client for Mac.
- Enter a User name and Password. The account must have root permissions.
- Click the OK button. Installation progress will be shown in the Installation overview window.
