Traffic Enforcement Network Content Filtering behavior in MacOS from Pulse Desktop 9.1R8.2


After upgrading to 9.1R8.2 and enabling Traffic Enforcement on a MacOS platform, a popup message will appear notifying that Pulse Secure will be filtering Network Contents. 
Problem or Goal
After upgrading to 9.1R8.2 and enabling Traffic Enforcement, MacOS platform receives a popup message regarding Pulse Secure will be filtering Network Contents.  

MACOS-POPUP-FILTER
Cause
Solution
This is an expected behavior with system extension introduced in 9.1R8.2 release. Pulse uses the 'Content-filter-provider' entitlement to filter the traffic. 

Fore details about entitlements, refer to https://developer.apple.com/documentation/bundleresources/entitlements/com_apple_developer_networking_networkextension?language=objc 


Pulse cannot avoid / bypass the 'Content Filtering' prompt.  

 
Note: The 'Content Filtering' notification will only show once.
However, customers can try to whitelist the Pulse Secure system extension.  To whitelist the Pulse Secure extension, see the Pulse Secure TeamID and bundle ID using systemextensionsctl list

This can be done for any MDM provider; JAMF being one of them.
