macOS Device Agent
Release 15.2.3 -- July 26, 2023
New macOS Agent Branding
The macOS agent logo has been updated to reflect the redesigned branding for SOTI MobiControl.
Updated OpenSSL Library
The latest release includes an updated OpenSSL library, enhancing security and performance. This update addresses potential vulnerabilities and ensures compatibility with the latest industry standards. Users can now benefit from improved encryption, stronger cryptographic algorithms, and overall enhanced security measures in their applications.
macOS Agent Notarized
The agent has been notarized in Apple's macOS security requirements to ensure software integrity, protection against tampering, and a smooth installation experience without security warnings.
Azure Conditional Access Flow Improvements
Azure Conditional Access flow helps control access to Azure resources based on specific conditions. With this improvement, users are provided more context when prompted with an Interaction Required message, helping them resolve the message and continue their work with minimal interruption.

Minimize Agent to Menu Bar Extra
You can now control the agent’s visibility in the dock from your SOTI MobiControl configuration. With these new settings, minimizing the agent hides it in the dock, but it remains active and accessible from the menu bar extra.
Agent Icon Enhancements
The agent icon in the menu bar extra now communicates its current connection status with the SOTI MobiControl server. For messages received and similar alerts that require your attention, the agent displays a red notification dot on top of the menu bar extra icon to ensure no important notices are missed. The icon has also been updated to reflect both light and dark themes and automatically changes its color depending on which version of the desktop you have selected.
Persistent Server Connection
The agent now attempts to reconnect with the SOTI MobiControl server every 30 minutes when it has been disconnected. This enables the agent to automatically come back online after going offline for server maintenance or after an unexpected disconnect.

Conditional Access for Microsoft 365 Apps

Enhanced Support for Script Execution
The Send Script feature has been upgraded to allow you to execute multi-line scripts from the web console. The agent is now able to distinguish the built-in script functions from macOS script commands, allowing you to integrate both SOTI MobiControl and macOS scripts as part of the same execution. This feature is supported as of SOTI MobiControl 15.5.2.
Dynamic Build Number for macOS Agent
The Build Number for the macOS agent is now dynamic and automatically increments with each new build.
