Supported Operating Systems

The Huntress Agent is currently available for Windows operating systems. Although macOS compatibility is on our development roadmap, less than 2% of our partner's endpoints are Macs. As a result, demand for better integrations, expanding detection telemetry, and showing value through reporting has taken priority. Considering this dynamic, we don't have a projected date for a macOS agent.

Windows Compatibility

Our agent currently supports 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x86_64) versions of Windows starting with Windows Vista / Server 2008.

  • Windows Vista / Server 2008
  • Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2
  • Windows 8 / Server 2012
  • Windows 8.1 / Server 2012 R2
  • Windows 10 / Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2019

Resource Dependencies

When our installer runs, it will need administrative privileges and roughly 25MB of disk space. The agent itself does not have any dependencies. However, we use a 3rd party updater utility which is written in .NET. As a result, the Huntress Installer will automatically install the applicable .NET 2.0 or .NET 4.0 version of the updater utility. The installer will also auto-select the correct 32-bit or 64-bit agent for you based on the version of Windows (32-bit or 64-bit). 
As for resource utilization, the typical Huntress Agent consumes less than 1% CPU and 20MB of RAM. On average, the size of the survey sent to the Huntress Cloud is about 700KB.
