  1. Allow Maxiumum Session Time per User/Group

    The current 'Maximum Session Timeout' is only available to be applied globally - this should be allowed to be configured / applied for different authentication methods, or as part of a Group Configuration. This is to allow RADIUS users a different session to a Local User.

    • Additional user info for guest Hotspot access

      In some places (like Brazil) the companies providing guest internet access must collect and store information about their users/visitors in order to allow them to get to the Internet.

      UTM should provide a custom form to allow the company to request the required data (like ID, email, phone numbers etc) and store those information for a specified amount of time (like 6 months, 1, 2 years etc)

      Also, they need to better correlate a web access to a hotspot visitor. Today it's only possible by searching different logs for IPs and voucher numbers. The voucher should be present in the…

      • Let's Encrypt Integration

        It would be very nice if Let's Encrypt CA start with public certificates (letsencrypt.org), that we can get certs throug the UTM Gui. So that the "Let's Encrypt Client" is integrated in the UTM. Would it be possible?
        Best Regards

        • XF firewall with Sandstorm and Heartbeat for home users

          Could Sophos consider to allow the use of sandstorm and heartbeat (with sophos free AV) for home users and increasing the ip limit to 100 (IoT is around the corner) for a price per year? 10$?

          If there is other people interested it could be another stream of incomes from sophos and at then end the use that the home users will do of sandstorm will be extremely limited compared with a company with thousands of users.

            • Uplink Monitoring - bind a monitoring host to a monitoring action

              Scenario:

              Main office communicates to multiple (3) branch offices over a single MPLS link. While we can create a monitoring host for each of the branch offices, it is not possible to bind a monitoring host to a particular action.

              Presently when any of the monitoring hosts are detected to be offline, all Actions are performed. Greater granularity would allow the UTM to perform Action B only when Monitoring Host B is offline.

              • Allow multiple authentication methods for Web Protection (Non Windows/Mac OS X devices)

                I would like a feature that allows devices to connect to the internet without authentication method but also allow the user to log in through the browser at any point in the session to gain their filter group.

                Ex. Allow the user to log into a Chromebook without authenticating to UTM and be awarded the default profile. At any time they are blocked by the strict default profile it should allow the user to specify their username and gain their groups specific profile.

                  • WAN-Bonding

                    Please implement the posibility to bond WAN-lines. Free FW-Appliances like pfSense are able to do that. Why not Sophos?

                    At home (my testing area, before I implement new confs in the company FWs) I have two ISPs. UnityMedia with 125/4 MBit and Telekom with 100/40 MBit. Only with an UTM it's not possible to bond the lines, so that I can use the full bandwith of both lines.
                    Momentary I've solved that by putting a pfSense-appliance between the IPS-modems and the UTM. So I reach speeds like 223/44 MBit.
                    But... why use an other appliance between ISP-lines and UTM? Why…

                      A report per user or source for the accessed URLs (Full URL) not just the accessed sites.

                      Users can abuse the system advising they are using youtube for work related research while they actually streaming music videos or watching comedy stand ups.
                      And since they have access to youtube, when we pull a report. it will show that the user has access the website but no details about the full URL, that point to the specific video he was watching.

                      • Deinstall antivirus software / tool

                        Need to have a deinstall antivirus tool in order to resolve most of the issues when reinstalling the product, for example MSI error or Autoupdate component corrupt.
                        At least would be very appreciate a check tool that checks if all the antivirus software components are installed properly and could advise you if something miss from your system.

                        • Customising user messages from the UTM appliance

                          Currently there is facility to customise error pages including content blocking and warning, downloading, authentication and error messages. However, when accessing sites that have certificate problems (expired, incorrectly named, etc) the error page is the basic out-of-the-box page. It would be nice to be able to customise this page as well.

                          In fact the UTM message pages are pretty good in them selves, it would just be nice to be able to change just the header and footer separately.

                          • SNI Support for XG Firewall

                            Server Name Indication (SNI) can be used to host multiple SSL sites on a single IP/Port. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_Name_Indication for details. It is already on UTM, but not XG. This will probably be needed if you ever decide to allow XG Firewall to request and manage Let's Encrypt certificates for multiple domains.

                              • Central Portal: Adjust Columns Widths

                                The column widths in the Central interface are fixed. This does not make sense and makes many items in the Alerts and RCA sections unreadable. The user should always be able to adjust all column widths.

                                This should also be true for the Central Endpoint client. It makes no sense that the window is a fixed size that can not be expanded or maximized and that the columns cannot be adjusted. I cannot read most of the lines on my system which severely limits the usefulness of the log.

                                  After the momentary dissaster with 9.410 (and 9.411) it would be great to have the possiblility to switch back to the latest working version without any factory-reset.
                                  Two different partitions. If the update goes wrong, switch back to the functionaly version.

                                  • Sophos appliance TCPDUMP

                                    I would suggest to enable TCPDUMP option log for a more detailed view of network traffic

                                    • Wireless: Support of non-Sophos Access Points

                                      Many customers have non-Sophos APs but would like to use some Wireless Protection feature. Therefore it would be nice if a small choice of Wireless Protection features were available for non-Sophos APs.

                                      • Relay Wake on LAN through Sophos XG

                                        We have lot of customers with different networks and a Sophos XG as Default Gateway.
                                        Relaying wake on lan request through Sophos XG would be nice.
