  1. band-steering in Sophos Wireless-Security

    What about the implementation of band-steering in Wifi ? That would be very helpful and the other manufacturers (AVM, LANCOM...) still have it.
    band-steering:
    Band steering is a technology that detects whether or not the wireless client is dual-band capable, and if it is, it will push the client to connect to the less congested 5GHz network. It does this by actively blocking the client’s attempts to associate with the 2.4GHz network. Since both 802.11n and the latest 802.11ac standards support 5GHz band, band steering can ensure that they achieve their maximum performance without being bottlenecked by legacy 802.11b/g clients.

        • Make the TTL/Timeout for DNS Groups user-configurable in Webadmin

          At moment DNS Groups have a default timeout of one week. You can only change that manually in cc-menu but it should be user-configurable in webadmin (there already exists an rpm for 9.407 said the support). Please make it possible to change it in webadmin for convenience!

          • increase the reporting features of the mail manager

            Two things that I would like to see is:
            One a report that shows emails that were released from the quarantine.For two reasons I want to know if they are marking it as spam after they release it from the quarantine and for the general traceability.
            Secondly, I would like to be able to build reports based on search criteria "Sender/Rcpt/Subject substring". This would be useful to check against emails that were marked as spam or questionable.

            • waf header

              Suppress server header from WAF reverse proxy. Most *********** testers flag up the fact that it gives away that it is running apache. Please add to the GUI the ability to turn this header off. It can be done manually at the moment with a hack, but it is unsupported, please make it an official settting.

              Add to httpd.conf the following code:-

              <IfModule security2_module>
              SecRuleEngine on
              ServerTokens Full
              SecServerSignature " "
              </IfModule>

                      • SMTP Log in Mail Manager Emails in the Log need to be able to be marked as Spam

                        Emails in the SMTP Log should be allowed to be marked as Spam. Makes life a little easier than the current process of finding the original users email, forwarding that email as an attachment to is-spam@sophos.com.

                        • Notify user of quarantined outbound messages

                          Right now users are only notified of inbound quarantined mails through the quarantine digest. If an outbound mail gets quarantined (e.g. because the attachment is unscannable) no one, not the sender, not the recipient, not the administrator gets notified about this. The mail therefor sits silently in the queue until it is pruned according to the quarantine settings. Such mails should at least be included in the quarantine reports, if not in even in separate notifications.

                          • Sandstorm

                            Hi
                            I would like to check the attachements with sandstorm first and then use the attachement type filter, so I think a lot of mails with infected attachements will disapear and I have not to check them in the quarantaine.

                              • Allow The URL lookups for blocking and allowing sites to use Sophos Database.

                                Allow us to change the URL lookups from McAfee poor database that get everything wrong to the Sophos Database as this seems to be correct with the WSA product lines. The McAfee lookup system seems to get things wrong. we request websites to Sophos to change and even after weeks they are still classed wrong. But they are all correct if you use the Sophos Web Appliance or end point lookups.

                                • Support setting httpd_location field in WAF login form.

                                  When using the UTM box as a reverse proxy handling user authentication before allowing access to an internal web app, a user is redirected to the login form if they've not logged in already. I need to be able to redirect users to the page they requested originally once they've authenticated successfully. For example, if they try to access https://example.com/foo, they get redirected to https://example.com/_something_form where they enter their credentials. They submit the form which is submitted to https://example.com/_something_login. If they're successful, they're then sent to https://example.com/. I need them to be setn to the original https://example.com/foo

                                    We know that bad actors like to churn their DNS information to prevent categorization services like UTM / TrustedSource. This was confirmed recently when I read research showing that DNS hosts on dynamic DNS have a disproportionately high incidence of malware. I cannot envision that our users ever need to visit a dynamic-dns FQDN for purposes essential to our business, so I would like the ability to block them. In my view, if an entity cannot afford a static IP for their services, they are not big enough to be a partner to us. If implemented, this might be an…
