Carbonite Endpoint Vault and Client version 11.1.  

  • Simplified Automatic Client Deployment  
  • Full macOS Sonoma Support 
  • Enhanced Auditing Capabilities for Policy Changes 
  • Enhanced Visibility for SSO & LDAP Configurations in Dashboard 


Carbonite Endpoint version 11.1 introduces simplified automatic client deployment features that makes installation and activation a single step process for Windows for non-domain-joined devices, improves experience for Windows domain-joined devices, simplifies activation for MSP using RMM or another tool, and simplifies activation for companies not using on-prem Active Directory or with remote users. The Mac silent install and activation process has also been simplified.  

The enhanced auditing capabilities for policy changes provide a deeper understanding of the evolution of the organization's policies and ensures accountability and transparency. Please note that this feature is available upon a Support request only. 

Additional roles within the organization can now view the SSO and LDAP Synchronization tabs. While expanding access, this feature provides a read-only view to ensure that sensitive settings related to SSO and LDAP synchronization are visible for informational purposes but protected from unauthorized modifications.
