Linux / Mac OS support, please

I would definitely be interested in this , been using Glasswire since it’s beginning stages and love it. Tons of my co-workers and friends would love a mac version also.

+1 For Linux, another user that registered just to vote for Linux. I am a PAID Windows that mainly uses Linux and would also like the same functionality of the firewall (alerts of new connections possible) with blocking of processes/ports while on Linux.

I also disagree with the changing of the name, it should still be the same program. Depending on which version I download I would understand that different operating systems have different ways of working but the end product should be the same.

We want GlassWire for Linux, not another program, I may not purchase a different product if it does not act the same.

Still waiting for a Mac version of GlassWire. Almost 3 years (March 2016) since I asked for a Mac version. I keep hoping! :slight_smile:

The UI is mostly done, but we’re still working on the backend. We will have a Mac version around summer time.


Do we need a new license ?

We plan to make Win/Mac licenses compatible.

So excited! My family stations are Mac and can’t wait to get your tool on them!

Shouldn’t they call it MacOS defender? :face_with_monocle:

Microsoft Defender ATP is not the same as Windows Defender. Microsoft Defender ATP is a cloud-based “Advanced Threat Protection” service to manage active threats/infections for enterprise customers. It prevents infections by incorporating Windows Defender on Windows computers but it’s real power is tracking infections once they occur.

The latest announcement that Windows Defender ATP is now Microsoft Defender ATP is just a name change because of adding the Mac platform.

The following article gives an example of how ATP works:

See the system requirements from last year which only covered Windows 10:

The lastest announcement adds support for more Windows 7 & 8 Enterprise and Pro clients and does not include Windows Home editions:

Thanks for the clarity remah, so it’s only for enterprise customers? Last article i read they did not mention this at all.

Essentially it is per user volume licensing that has Centralized configuration management, analytics, reporting, and security operations which means E5. The E3 volume licensing doesn’t have this as the system requirements in the second link above says:

Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection requires one of the following Microsoft Volume Licensing offers:

Windows 10 Enterprise E5
Windows 10 Education E5
Microsoft 365 E5 (M365 E5) which includes Windows 10 Enterprise E5

If you want more detail then check out Microsoft’s Compare Windows 10 Editions page where there is a link to Download full comparison table (0.5MB) which provides more detail.

No, we are changing some things with our backend for Mac, and that update for Windows will come simultaneously and have similar tech/changes.
