  1. Add "Send me a secure copy" when using SPX encryption

    With the Sophos Email Appliance, there is an option to "Send me a secure copy" when replying to an email. There is no such option with the UTM. This is a required feature for legal so that they can prove that they actually sent correspondence.

    • Have Sophos Deployment Packager skip copying files when the source directory is the local machine

      If a local location is entered in the "source folder" field in Sophos Deployment Packager, it should recognize this fact and skip making an extra copy of the files. By "local location" I mean if the path starts with a drive letter as well as a UNC path that starts with the name of the local machine.

          • Restricted YouTube Support

            Support the HTTP Headers method for YouTube content control as per the Google article below.

            https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6214622

            This should be offered at a policy level in the filter action so that this can granularly be controlled.

              • qos setting dynamic limits on uplinks

                I would like to allocate set bandwidth for different vlans (deparments) including voice traffic. Is it possible for us to setup a 100Mb link as follows:

                VLAN1- 20Mb
                VLAN2- 20Mb
                VLAN3- 30Mb
                VLAN4- 10Mb
                VOICE traffic- 10Mb

                I would like to have it set like the above but say if one vlan require more bandwidth and it is available on the link it should be able to grow. The limit should not be a maximum limit so to speak.

                • different IP addresses for concurrent L2TP VPN user

                  A same L2TP user account logged on 2 different computers receive a same IP address from external DHCP server, and it makes concurrent L2TP VPN user not feasible.
                  It would be nice if UTM can support concurrent L2TP VPN users by allocating different IP addresses to client computers.

                    Our customer is curious about the correspondence situation of the anti-virus for a menace of the security quickly.
                    In other words I want to know how long you become able to detect a certain virus by an anti-VirusScan function of UTM.
                    In addition, customer oneself allows you to confirm the information of the date and time.

                      Ability to show disclaimer/security warning when logging into SSL vpn. Similar to the one you see when logging into the web admin console.

                        • Sophos Management Appliance SNMP Monitoring

                          Hi,

                          A Platinum customer has requested that we have a SNMP Monitoring feature that we can set/enable within the Sophos Management Appliance (SMA). This does exist on the Web Appliance's but not on the SMA.

                          They would like this feature so they can be informed of the Health of the device as they recently had an issue where it ran out of resources (backed-up data since 2013).

                          Regards,

                          • In Anti-Spam, Expression-check everything after DATA or include From

                            Currently, only the Subject field and the content of the email is checked. Well before V8, maybe in V6, we could add the email address of a departed employee to 'Expressions' to force emails to that person into quarantine.

                            In most organizations, emails within the organization won't transit the SMTP Proxy. An additional benefit would be that adding the domain would prevent outside emailers from spoofing an internal user in the From field. There is otherwise no mechanism to catch something like the following example that demonstrates a spoof of the company president ordering the treasurer to wire money:

                              So far I see only mail with status "clean".

                                • The ability to view, report and amend pre approved usb devices, and the ability to revoke if lost/ stolen

                                  In the current console you can view usb devices that are read only or blocked.
                                  With the current cyber security risks, it would be good to firstly report on all devices approved, and then manage or revoke if one they are lost or stolen. And two if we find firmware issues and vunrabilities.

                                    at some times legitime message was stopped in mail manager and not going out to Exchange Server.
                                    I like to have Access directly via mail Manager, the same spam mails or smtp mails.

                                      • Individual Mailuser notification in case of blocked incoming emails

                                        Our customers asked us if it is possible to notify users (not the administrator) not only with a digest of all blocked emails. They want a single notification for every quaratained mail because of a malware attachment or a blocked filetype.

                                        • Enable Network Agent (iOS) authentication for Sophos UTM Home licenses.

                                          For home users, it would be terrific to be able to use the Network Agent iOS app for iPhone / iPad authentication for family members.

                                          This would greatly simplify the authentication process!
