Release 17.11 beta 5 (build 38353)
This release focuses on bug fixes and internal improvements related to Security Cloud.
do you have exact date to release the final version?
I'm asking because I see a other post with start the beta 1 for Mac Protection 18
Thanks and best regards!
The final 17.11 version is now being gradually released to production. The production variant of FS Protection is called F-Secure SAFE. What we usually do is we release each last stable version of FS Protection to production as SAFE product and continue working on new features, improvements and bug fixes at the same time with new FS Protection releases.
So, SAFE for Mac 17.11 is now available for downloading from My F-Secure portal. And we will start upgrading existing SAFE customers later this summer (around August).
And at the same time FS Protection is going further with the future 18.0 release. This release is scheduled for later this year (the current plan is around September-October). There will be of course more FS Protection releases till then.
Hope that clears the situation 😀
Thanks for your quick response. And for Business company?
We have a F-secure computer protection premium licenses for all devices in the company, and when I try to download the mkg for Mac devices, is downloaded version 17.10(36471) not the new 17.11. Do you know when is available to download on the F-Secure Elements Security Center portal?
Thank's and best regards!
Unfortunately, I don't know the much about the schedule for business side products.
I'd recommend asking in the business security products section of the Community forum: https://community.f-secure.com/en/categories/business-security-products or contacting Customer Care.
thank's for the info, I will post.
