  1. CelleBrite

    This is used for moving cellphone data from one phone to another. It needs to be added to the montored list to ensure we can use this without problem. Currently the androidlib.dll is removed by Sophos so we are not able to use the product

    • UTM live log to show a logged in user activity in human readable format

      With the raw log it's difficult to follow a single logged in user activity, could there be a live log in human readable format to follow a single user web surfing activity in real time?

        • Enhance VPN Reporting to show services contributing to usage per user

          The UTM weekly executive report breaks down VPN usage by user. After confirming with Sophos support, it appears there is no way to shed light on what those VPN users are doing.

          I need a report that tells me what services VPN users are using while connected to the VPN.

            • Add Action to Availability Group when Group set to unresolved

              Description:
              - Two sites connected to Internet
              - Site-to-Site (S2S) IPsec tunnel established
              - Private Point-to-Point (P2P) Link (NOT uplink) with better bandwidth introduced on a separate interface
              - Static route defined to use Private Point-to-Point Link to connect to remote site

              Problem:
              Need to shutdown Site-to-Site VPN to force traffic to use static route over Private Point-to-Point Link (not uplink)

              Required:
              Use P2P line as a preferred route between sites when P2P line is active
              Use VPN S2S when P2P down
              Automatic failover from P2P to VPN and back to P2P when line is active

                • Add a new option "type" for network definitions - AD computers

                  Add a new option "type" for network definitions that allows for AD computers within an AD security group (much like the AD users/groups dynamic memberships). This would allow much more flexibilities on how to apply "hosts", such as when creating a Web Filter Profile, instead of adding "internal network" or a specific host/hosts, we would be able to add to "allowed networks" an Active Directory group that would consist of computers that I added into that group via Active Directory. This is specifically important, since this would allow Web Filter Profiles to differentiate between domain machines and guest machines on…

                        • Fix the Country Blocking Exceptions to allow the exceptions to work properly

                          When I want to allow only specific hosts or DNS names from a specific country, it should allow that and actually work.

                          So if I block all of Russia, I should be able to explictly allow items for a specific business I interact with therebyt either IP or DNS host name. The system says it allows this now, but it doesn't fully work.

                          I may also only want to allow email traffic (port 25) for one company but not allow other port traffic.

                          This is opened as a support case as well, but support technician said to open a feature…

                                • Proxy usage security problem + change the bad proxy design

                                  When using - _Skip transparent mode destination hosts/nets_
                                  with _Allow HTTP/S traffic for listed hosts/nets_ checked, not only hosts which are in _Allowed Networks_ can reach this destination hosts. So if you have a public WLAN which is not in the _Allowed Networks_ _Web Filtering_, everyone in this Network can reach the destination hosts.

                                  The automatic Rule _Allow HTTP/S traffic for listed hosts/nets_ should only allow the
                                  Hosts in _Allowed Networks_ to solve this security problem.

                                  If you don_t want to change this behavior please remove the _Allow HTTP/S traffic for listed hosts/nets_ Feature for security reasons.

                                  General firewall design:

                                  • ATP Recent Threads Overview in SUM

                                    It is possible to manage the Advanced Threat Protection over SUM4.

                                    But except of the CRIT-861-notification or checking the UTM, there is no way to see what UTMs had recent events.
                                    i think it would make things easier if there was a overview about that threats in either the Configuration>ATP section or in the Monitoring>Threats section.

                                    • User-defined field for DynDNS

                                      My idea: DynDns field for user-defined Update-URL to use all DynDNS providers and Features like MX-Record and A-record.

                                      So it is not necessary, to put all DynDNS providers in the choise field.

                                      • Easy entry for dns/ip hosts in HOST BLACKLIST

                                        I am getting really bored of adding new smtp spam servers to my "host blacklist" (SMTP>RELAYING) because EVERY TIME I like to add a new smtp spam server I have to creat a new "network". And this network (dns or ip based) is later showing up in my host list.

                                        Just for the record .... my current host blacklist contains over 300 (!) blocked hosts!!! Just to give everyone an idea how many smtp spam servers I had to add to my host blacklist and how many (useless) host entries I have to scroll down/pass ANY TIME in my host…
