System Requirements

This topic describes the system requirements for the EPM agents that are installed on endpoints.

Supported Windows platforms

  • Windows 10 x32 & x64

  • Windows 11 x64

  • Windows Server 2016

  • Windows Server 2019

  • Windows Server 2022

Support on outdated Windows versions

Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008/R2, or Windows Server 2012/2012 R2 and this may put your workstations and servers at risk from security threats.

CyberArk strongly recommends that you upgrade your endpoint's operating system to a newer and supported Windows version as soon as possible.

CyberArk may, at its sole discretion and on a case by case basis, make commercially reasonable efforts to support EPM agents installed on outdated Windows versions.

Supported macOS platforms

  • macOS Big Sur 11.0 - EPM v11.5.1 and higher

  • macOS Monterey 12 - EPM agent 11.5.4

  • macOS Ventura 13 - EPM agent 11.5.5 and higher


CyberArk recommends always using the most updated operating system with the recommended installations.



Make sure that .Net 4.6 is installed on the following platforms where the default .Net version is lower than 4.6:

  • Windows platforms lower than Win 10 (e.g., Win 7, Win 8.1).

  • Server platforms lower than Win 2016 (e.g., Win 2012 R2 and Win 2008 R2).
