Carbon Black Cloud: How to Enable Full Disk Access for Sensor on macOS 10.14.5 and Higher

Environment

  • Carbon Black Cloud Sensor: All Supported Versions
  • Apple macOS: 10.14.5 and higher

Objective

Allow the Sensor full disk access in order to allow Sensor full visibility into User and Application data

Resolution


Additional Notes

  • Full Disk Access is not required for the Sensor to function, but it is required for the Sensor to be fully effective
  • Granting Full Disk Access is an additional step beyond kernel extension approval and does not replace that process
  • If FDA is not granted to the Sensor, end users may be prompted to grant the Sensor access when it attempts to access protected directories
  • If FDA is not granted to the Sensor, the events for those machines will include "access denied" messages when the Sensor attempts to access protected directories
