System extension blocked messages on MacOS
The installation of Avast Business solutions on a computer running MacOS High Sierra or Mojave may cause a pop-up message saying “System Extension Blocked”. This message is showing because the most recent releases of High Sierra and Mojave introduced a new security mechanism that requires user approval before loading non-Apple kernel extensions.
Once you click "OK" on the pop-up message, you can proceed with the installation of your Avast product. After the installation, you will have to allow the scripts to run by following these steps:
- Install the DMG package on your desktop.
- Open the Admin application.
- Drag the Avast Business Security.pkg file to the repository and allow it to upload to the server.
- Once the package is uploaded, double-click on the package.
- Highlight the Avast Business Security.pkg package and click the index button. Allow the index to complete.
