  1. Allow NOT matching for host names in parent proxies

    The ability to use NOT statements in parent proxy host matching would enable us to send selected traffic out through a secondary routed connection (not network default gateway) whilst still enabling us to use transparent proxy (we cannot set proxy exceptions and do not wish to on the client).

    • Parent Proxy failover options

      Some options are required to determine what happens when a parent proxy is not available. Now it takes 5 mins for the UTM to realise the parent is not available and to move to the next proxy in the list or revert to the default route. Ideally a function like TMG where an upstream proxy can have a backup proxy set or a "direct to internet" option would be best.

            • End point protection log

              In UTM 9.3, there were a range of improvements to the Web Filtering log files including referrer URLs and user agents.

              Unfortunately these changes did not make it into the End Point Protection (EPLog) files. The EP logs appear to be the same as the web filtering logs, only only stuck back in the v9.2 format.

              Is it possible to propagate the recent improvements to the web filtering logs into the end point protection logs?

                • Add support for acting as a secondary/***** DNS nameserver

                  Currently, the UTM can either act as an authoritative DNS server or as a (selective) forwarder.

                  What's missing is the support for acting as a secondary/***** DNS nameserver that can do zonetransfers from existing DNS nameservers, e.g. internal Active Directory DNS nameservers.

                  Imagine you have a small internal network with 1 Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Host and 2 Active Directory domain controllers running on top.
                  When you reboot the HVH for maintenance reason (e.g. updates), both internal DCs are unreachable and a UTM cannot do internal name resolution anymore, as its forwarding target nameservers for the internal domain(s) are…

                    • Sophos UTM Manager (SUM): Generate Notification, when any measured Value turns to red

                      Hello,

                      at the Moment the notification is only send if the threatlevel is not ok. Would be great, if there would be a possibillity to send a notification, if one of the measured values would be changed and not just the threatlevel.

                      So for example the SUM should send a notification, if the drops of packets is getting high.

                      Best regards

                      • Ban IP for Brute Force Login Attempts on Virtual Webservers

                        Sophos UTM should automagically block an IP address after several failed login attempts to a webpage that is hosted behind the Web Application Firewall (WAF).

                        An example would be the WordPress login page.

                          • Clean otp token automatically

                            We have opt tokens in use. All users are a member of a AD group.
                            We would like it when a user is removed from the group of AD the token should also automatically be removed from the utm.
                            Now the removed AD users remain in the opt token list and it's becoming a mess.

                                - You are using Sophos UTM with Web Protection

                                This is due to the fact that Google searches are done in HTTPS and if the HTTPS filtering is not active then the UTM UTM can not scan the contents of Google search ...

                                However, there is a virtual IP provided by Google SafeSearch forcing queries. The searchs are then blocked by Google.

                                    We need a simple blacklist "group" object that we can pop in either individual IP's or an IP range. This would be used for blacklisting IPs and blocking/drop all traffic from these IPs before they hit the filter rules. Similar to how the country blocking works but with out own defined list of IPs, IP ranges and even domains (top level and subdomains).

                                      • Licensing approach - home use

                                        Dear Sophos,

                                        Can you please look into moving UTM9 to the same licensing model (CPU/RAM) as XG? UTM is a lovely thing to set up and use, but the number of IoT devices and TVs etc on my home network means that I've hit the 50 IP limit.

                                        I'm really not liking XG's UI, unfortunately. Moving to XG is unlikely unless it improves markedly; I'd far rather stay with UTM, if you'd just sort out that darned limit... please!

                                        • Sandstorm Reporting/Logs for Web & SMTP

                                          Sandstorm reporting and logs should be available under the "Logging/Reporting" section of the UTM.
