Silently approve System Extensions for McAfee Endpoint Security Big Sur

New Contributor III

Trying to figure out how to get the system extensions profile to silently approve McAfee system extensions. As of now, if a Mac is updated to Big Sur, it requires user interaction to login with admin creds (which they don't have) and allow the McAfee extension.

I've followed instructions on McAfee's support site to create a system extension payload in a configuration profile, along with a content filter payload. However, I continue to see devices requiring user interaction to approve the extensions.

The issue occurs if the profile is scoped prior to installing Big Sur, as well as if scoped after Big Sur was already installed.

Has anyone else had any success with these profiles, whether with McAfee or another AV application?
