  1. Create bootable USB version of UTM software installer and a method of maintaining the current level

    Currently we download the latest ISO of the UTM installer software and create CD's to boot from and install. Creating USB bootable media would be quicker, more efficient and more environmentally friendly

    • Failover for UTM to UTM RED Tunnel

      When configuring a RED 50, we have the option to provide a secondary IP to the Server UTM in the event the primary IP on the Server end goes down. However, when configuring two UTMs to connect via RED Tunnel, there is no option on the Client UTM to configure a secondary IP to the Server UTM. It is really a critical feature needed for failover and would eliminate the need to create two RED Tunnels for each device connected. Why not port that feature from the RED 50 to the UTM?

        • Ability to create sub accounts with different permission levels

          I would like the ability to create sub accounts with different permission levels. For example, you can have account 1 able to unblock/whitelist and account 2 can perform updates etc. This would be great as you won't need to give out the admin password and no user will see or do anything they are not supposed to on the webadmin interface.

          • SSL VPN: Support IPv6

            Currently SSL VPN only pushes IPv4 configuration to the client. With some manual editing under the hood you can add IPv6 in the config files.

            I'd like to have this feature by default using the GUI!

            • OpenVPN - Site2Site broken remote ifconfig

              (issue since v4.9, worked w/o problems before)

              UTMs openvpn.conf (changed IPs...):
              ```
              push-reset
              push 'topology subnet'
              ifconfig-push 10.0.0.5 172.16.12.1
              push 'route-gateway 172.16.12.1'
              push 'route 192.168.1.26 255.255.255.255'
              push 'setenv-safe remote_network_2 192.168.1.26/32'
              push 'setenv-safe local_network_1 10.0.0.4/30'
              iroute 10.0.0.4 255.255.255.252
              ```
              leads to this ifconfig-command on the remote site (linux/openvpn) which fails:
              "/sbin/ifconfig tun0 10.0.0.5 netmask 172.16.12.1 mtu 1500 broadcast 91.239.247.255"
              (why is there a polish IP from akashanet.pl?! both machines are in germany at different providers...)

              when i change the "topology subnet" to "topology p2p" this ifconfig command is run on the client and everything works:
              "/sbin/ifconfig tun0 10.0.0.5 pointopoint 172.16.12.1 mtu…

                • Add the option to deploy End Point AV from the user portal

                  It is often more efficient to let the user install when it is convenient to them. Particularly when installing for the first time to remote users or using onsite support technicians without UTM access.

                  • Introduce a mechanism by which particular browsers, for example, Firefox may be blocked by the Sophos UTM.

                    We are looking at Sophos UTM as a possible replacement for our current Microsoft 2010 TMG instance. Within The HTTP filter on TMG 2010 it was possible block content based on signatures within the request header. For example, to block Firefox, TMG 2010 could be configured to identify the Firefox user-agent within the request header and block it if need be.

                      • MAC Address Definitions: Description fields in lists

                        Create a field that describes each entry that is within MAC address definition list.

                        In our case we've created a white-list for wireless devices and it currently appears as a large list of indistinguishable devices.

                        A simple field tied to these addresses would improve management. Having the logs reference this field would also be a benefit as we currently have difficulties identifying the devices that are within our list when there is an issue.

                        • Remove support for TLS 1.0/Allow it to be disabled.

                          PCI scans that see a remote access port open to the internet fail because the appliance still supports TLS 1.0. I have to dispute this every time, and it is a real hassle.

                                  • do we have alert or notification email for spam mail which exceed to 500 above

                                    I need feature where i can get an alert for the spam mail notification which could exceed 500 above. This would help us to get an alert where we can set a feature to allow to delete the spam mails which further exceeds to 500.

                                    Imapact to this the UTM gets stuck and further to make the device work properly I need to clear the spam mail frequently.

                                    • Allow top level domains in ES1100 encryption rules (*.com, *.gov.uk etc)

                                      Currently the encryption rules do not permit the use of TLDs as the basis for rules. In the UK, with rules for all government documents (including email to be classed as Official, exchanges between government agencies need to be encrypted by default. Stipulating a mandatory TLS transport for all *.gov.uk domains could take one rule, rather than hundreds as at present. Not all mail exchangers support TLS, so setting that as mandatory for all email, which is the alternative, would potentially cause a lot of problems with email to non-government bodies.

                                        • Create Report for Outstanding Alerts and Errors

                                          I would like to create a report that contains the same information as the "Computers with Alerts" section of the dashboard. This would allow my helpdesk staff to receive an automated report of computers that Sophos couldn't automatically clean up. Then they can visit the computers, determine whether the result was a false positive or truly a threat. Then they can take appropriate action to remove the infection or white list the false positive. The current reports include all the comptuers that say "threat no longer present" or "Cleaned Up" or any other status that isn't currently a threat. If…
