    OS X added Gatekeeper signing of binaries to help avoid Malware.

     

    Please sign the Samanage agent to avoid the error described here: https://community.samanage.com/samanage/topics/deploy_on_mac_osx-16nok4?topic-reply-list%5Bsettings%...

     

    It is quite simple to sign a binary and it comes off as super-sketchy not to do so. Most Mac users never encounter unsigned binaries.

     

    Also, please remove the very bad advice to change your preferences not to check for signed binaries.
    In the meantime, users can open your agent by right clicking (or ctrl-clicking) and selecting open. But please do not encourage them to turn off Gatekeeper, as it is important protection.
