Netsurion Open XDR provides support for devices running Apple’s macOS. Netsurion Open XDR can extract logs from OS devices and can generate flex reports and triggering alerts due to suspicious activity associated with login/logout activity, authentication failures and any kind of administrator activity.

  • Security – User authentication failure.
  • Compliance – User and group management, administrative activities and command executed.
