HI

we face the issue to install Forcepoint on our Macs, but I can't even install it myself via command line because the HD is read only.
So deploying it an masse is even more tedious

Anyone out there who has been able to install it on Catalina, and wants to share how?

any help is appreciated

Have you had any luck getting a ForcePoint package built for Self Service, and or automated deployment via policy ?

I've been attempting to build a custom package in Composer but I'm having no luck.... The ForcePoint directory includes 5 files, two of which are installer .pkg's - that you actually have to install manually with administrative privileges as you know; at present it's a manual and tedious process that I'd like to automate.... Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

ForcePoint directory of contents....

1) ca.cer
2) DLPClientConfig.hsw
3) localConfig.xml
4) WebsenseEndpoint.pkg
5) WebsenseEPClassifier.pkg

if you are just deploying the endpoint client, you just need to package the WebsenseEndponit.pkg. Other files are not required.

You will need to add a - Configuration Profile > Approved Kernel Extensions with Team ID C489D5E8E8 - Configuration Profile > Privacy Preferences Policy Control. I just need to know the CODE REQUIREMENT for it as I don't know it.

Forcepoint is kinda annoying, the application manufacturer makes the product for macOS but does not officially support it on macOS. We deploy the forcepoint installer and use a scrip to install it, and have a configuration profile to do everything needed for forcepoint to work. I attached screenshots of our configuration profile for forcepoint, and the script we use to install it. If this does not get you going you may need to get with forcepoint.

I know I am a little late to the party here and it may be irrelevant now, but can @AJPinto can you paste the text for the code snapshot?  I am not sure I transcribed that right.  I'm wrestling with Forcepoint One config right now as it is.  Being quite a few versions behind does not help though.  😕
