App Name Ventura Compatibility Remarks
AuriStorFS and AFS at Stanford Compatible

Tested on intel based MacBook Pro. For macOS 11 and above, all third-party System Extensions are blocked by default. Click “Open Security Preferences” to begin the process of approving the “AuriStor, Inc” System Extension. 

The AuriStorFS client relies upon a proprietary System Extension. New Apple Silicon macs are configured from the factory to only accept System Extensions from Apple. To permit third-party System Extensions, the system must be rebooted and the Startup Security Utility must be executed. More information is on their blog here.
