This Article Explains about Connect tunnel and Mobile connect compatibility with MacOS update Big Sur.
At WWDC 20, Apple confirmed that MacOS Big Sur 11.x, and its Beta version, 10.16, will strongly discourage support for Kernel Extensions. The 11.x production release is expected by October 2020. This change will greatly reduce the possibility of kernel panics on endpoints and reduce the attack surface.
Mobile Connect, Connect Tunnel clients are not impacted by the changes made from Apple new MacOS update. So the users can upgrade to Big Sur update on MacOS. Mac CT client does not use the older kernel extensions and is not impacted by this. This is not applicable to NetExtender clients as they are not supported on Mac.
