Browser support for Safari

Created: 07 Feb 2011 | 7 comments

The Symantec Data Loss Prevention (Vontu) login page on the Enforce server throws an error if you use a browser other than IE or Firefox, which sucks because we have a lot of Mac (Safari) users in our organization. Is support for Safari/Chrome coming any time soon? If not, is there a way to bypass the browser check?

Here is what the error looks like:

 

Unsupported Browser

Please make sure that you are using one of the following Browsers:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6.0 or higher
  • Mozilla Firefox version 1.5 or higher (Linux)

    Hmm, there's no way (that I know of at least) to bypass the browser check. The best bet would be to download some kind of addon for Chrome/Safari to act in "compatibility mode" for Firefox. I'm not even sure if such an addon exists.

    What version of DLP are you using?

    I just did a quick search for those plugins and they don't exist (as I expected)...I guess you'll just have to download Firefox on those PCs that need to manage Enforce.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for your help but I don't want to tell users to download plugins/alternate browsers :(

    I'm going to be immature and say: this sucks!

    lol, okidokie. Hopefully this was addressed in the DLP 11 release. What version are you currently using?

    The DLP 11 doesn't support Safari too, and, there are no roadmap to add the support for Safari.

    And, the DLP 11 doesn't support IE6 any more.

    Well I understand IE 6 'cause the security is pretty dated...but man...Safari's not even in the roadmap sad
