Made available as F-Secure XFENCE, Little Flocker's technology will enhance F-Secure's corporate and consumer macOS security solutions by adding advanced behavioral malware blocking.

Helsinki, Finland – April 6, 2017: Cyber security company F-Secure has acquired Little Flocker, the most advanced security technology available for Macs, from a private app developer. Most Mac security solutions rely entirely on a traditional signature-based approach against malware, but cannot protect Mac users from modern targeted attacks.
Little Flocker protects Macs by using advanced behavioral based analysis, and monitors apps that attempt to access confidential files and system resources. It also detects and blocks Mac ransomware.
F-Secure will build Little Flocker's next-generation security engine into its new XFENCE technology. XFENCE will complement F-Secure's existing endpoint solutions to provide advanced behavioral Mac protection for both corporate and consumer customers.

To what extent does this class of product duplicate/interfere with Apple technology such as XProtect?
Notwithstanding that, I'm looking forward to having XFENCE, HitmanPro.Alert/Intercept X and others available for macOS.

My concern is I don't see an official way to uninstall the XFENCE beta...

Could always uninstall it via the registry if you're comfortable doing that.
Brain fart. Didn't register as MacOS in my mind even though I just read it. :oops:
