Cylance Asking for Security and Privacy Approval Post-Installation (Big Sur and Monterey)

New Contributor II

Here's what I'm talking about:



I've tried several Configuration Profile configurations and followed the instructions as provided by Cylance, but what's pictured above still appears. For now, we've been manually hitting the "Allow" button to ensure that Cylance fully installs. 

Any advice would be appreciated!

I had a similar issue with Crowdstrike, nothing I did would approve what appeared to be a system extension. However, it turned out that it was being caused by the enablement of a feature that provided some scanning of the bios, or something like that, which actually was using a kernel extension. We’ve since disabled this feature (which was not actually doing anything) and the prompt has been resolved.
