  1. More detailed Mail Exception Configuration

    Allow to configure exceptions for extension blocking for single extensions.

    Actually it is only possible to create an exception and disable extension blocking at all. For special recipients it would be helpful to allow for example exe-attachments, but still block all other extensions.

    Furthermore it should be possible to create exceptions and combine sender AND recipient address. Actually it is only possible to filter for sender OR recipient address.

    • Deliver Complete Certificate Chain for User Portal

      The user portal in the UTM is not able to deliver the complete certificate chain. It is missing intermediate certificate due to which our VPN Portal is categorized B on online SSL Testing websites.

      • IMAP Proxy for UTM/SG 9

        Implement an IMAP proxy for UTM/SG 9. Provides filtering and scanning functionality for those that use this type of mail retrieval.
        IMAP becomes more and more important for mail clients. The use of POP3 declines. On the other hand, threads caused by malicious mail attachments like crypto trojans or macro viruses are more dangerous than ever. By not implementing sufficient security for IMAP protocol Sophos leaves an increasing part of UTM/SG customers alone.

        • SUM - Eine Firewall auf mehreren OU's zuweisen

          Momentan ist es nur möglich auf eine OU zuzuweisen. Vielleicht wäre es in der Zukunft möglich, eine Firewall an mehreren OU's zuzuweisen.

          Z.B.: die Firewalls in eine OU _global für alle gültige Einstellungen_ und in eine Länderspezifische OU zusätzlich integrieren.

          • "False Positive" without release

                • Sandstorm unscannable SMTP exception

                  Please add the ability to create unscannable exceptions when sandstorm reports an attachment is unscannable. We've been getting quite a few legitimate messages quarantined when sandstorm scanning fails (cloud based server load?)

                  • Correct the reporting on the Email Appliance so the presentation is consistent.

                    At the moment, reporting has to be done manually because reports cannot be scheduled. The report order changes, so before I import it into my spreadsheet, it has to be reordered. At the moment, ordering is by Total. It would be more efficient if it were ordered in a consistent way, by Type. It would then be easy to simply copy and paste.

                    • Output option based on status cord

                      We use HTTP proxy AD SSO. When AD SSO is used, httplog is filled with lots of status cord 407. We're pestered with increase of I/O caused by output of status cord 407.

                      Because it's AD SSO, it's no doubt to request authentication. It's meaningless to output this in log intentionally. We don't want to output status code 407. So we propose addition of log output option by a status cord.

                          • Allow customers to disable the Quick Search

                            We have over 1k network definitions in the UTM. Every time we need to modify a network definition and begin searching under Network Definitions the browser becomes unresponsive as we start typing the name. I suspect this is due to the number of items that the quick search has to generate. Please allow customers to disable the quick search menus as for larger environments it creates issues.

                            • Update Web Browser for HTML5 VPN

                              The HTML5 VPN web browser is Firefox 17.0.

                              This browser is literally more than 4 years old, at the time of this suggestion. It has many known security vulnerabilities, and is not compatible with a great many newer sites. This absolutely needs to be updated, and kept up-to-date with firmware updates. Using a 4-year-old browser in current firmware is beyond unacceptable.

                                • Remove UTM SSO reliance on insecure SMB 1.0

                                  We disabled SMB 1.0 on our domain for security reasons, and the UTM SSO stopped working.

                                  Apparently the UTM relies on SMB 1.0 and plain text for SSO!

                                  This needs fixing ASAP and support for SMB 2+ enabling.

                                  • Regenerate Webadmin CA !

                                    Hi,

                                    it would be greate if there was a way to Regenerate the Webadmin CA like the VPN CA.
                                    In case the Companyname changes i have no posibility in the UI to recreate the CA for the Webadmin. I can only recreate the Cert for Webadmin which uses the WebadminCA which was created during the Setup.

                                    There seems to be a Solution on the Commandline(last Link) is that a supported way?

                                      • executive Report in different language(Korean)

                                        Executive report in the Archived executive report is generated in English even though the language is set the Korean. It would be nice, if the archived executive report is generated in Korean when Korean is selected for the language.

                                        • Change Web Protection so that active connections get cut off when a time limit rule takes effect

                                          Refer to this post:
                                          https://community.sophos.com/products/unified-threat-management/f/web-protection-web-filtering-application-visibility-control/84096/youtube-and-google-bypass-web-filtering-profile-block-once-content-is-loaded-in-chrome-tabs/314877#314877

                                          The issue is if I have time limits established in a Policy to cut users off from surfing during certain times of day, if that user has an active established connection to say youtube, when the rules time limit takes effect and puts the block in place, the active connections are not cut off, the user can continue to watch youtube until they terminate their connection to youtube in this example, at this point if they try to re-establish the connection, the web protection rule stops them for creating a new connection.

                                          I've now got…
