Preemptively block Mojave before release

Does anyone know what the name of the Mojave installer will be when it goes live on the 24th? Based on past OS releases, one would assume "Install macOS Mojave.app". I just want to be able to block the upgrade on several JSSes before it is actually released. We already have the beta blocked, but want to block the public release so users don't attempt to upgrade the day it goes live and until we certify it for their environment.

Thanks!

Its better to block a process called InstallAssistant rather than the .app name.

That way the same block works for 10.10 upwards and also stops the users simply renaming the .app to get around your restriction.

And for macOS 10.13.4 or later devices there is also the defer software updates option via Configuration Profiles using the Restrictions payload
