  1. Blocked website list from SUM

    Need a way to deploy a blocked website list from SUM without requiring standardised filter action because every site has different categories blocked etc and can't just create a new filter action that applies to everyone with a blocked list in it.

    • Make an API for Sandstorm sample submissions

      Please make it possible to send and get Sandstorm sample submissions using an API. Customers with valid sandstorm licenses for Sophos UTM or classic Sophos Appliances can then use scripts for other solutions to submit samples and retrieve results.

      Another idea is to create a seperate license for this API usage. There can be many implementation possibilities for Sandstorm API scripting, sending samples and automating processess depending on the submission results.

      • Prevent users of Wifi Hotspot from being able to use the HTTP Proxy service to browse to local RFC1918 addresses, accessing LAN web services

        Users on a Separate Zone Wifi Hotspot network can currently browse to local web services if going via the proxy, as the proxy is not limited to local web servers.

        This is an issue, as it allows guests to browse local web resources that may be internal secure resources.

          Add a feature that is common and very useful on most firewalls, The display of active counters on firewall rules. This is a quick and useful way to trouble shoot firewall rule issues.

            • Provide support for Wildcard Digital Certificates for User Portal

              We have been told by Sophos Support that the UTM will not present the intermediate CA (Digicert Wildcard Certificate). Please provide support so we can use our existing wildcard certificate with the user portal. There is an unsupported workaround, but it does not persist through a reboot.

              • list of connected sessions

                List VPN sessions connected by host when managed by SUM Gateway Manager. This would save having to log into each VPN gateway to see the active sessions by IP and authenticated user per host.

                • Improved Advanced Threat Protection Notification

                  Currently, you can receive emails or SNMP traps when you get an ATP alert, but they provide very limited information. It would be very useful if these notifications provided a similar level of detail to the ATP section in the UI.

                  This could help improve logging capabilities as well as easier administration.

                  • Allow HTTPS Decryption Exception based on Signing CA or Specific Certificate

                    Configure exceptions based on a Signing CA or based on a certificate. If USM web proxy requests an outbound HTTPS connection, and the returned certificate is signed by a specific CA cert or the cert returned matches a specific certificate, and that cert is (optionally) valid, then bypass HTTPS decryption and pass the connection on to the internal client. This would make things much easier to make exceptions for Microsoft OneDrive, where there are a ton of URLs and even some IP addresses that need to be added to the exception list in order to make it work. Id rather…

                      • SPX recipent password reset

                        Did the end-user password reset functionality go away at some point? I have a newly integrated UTM 9 at version 9.4. In the SPX end-user provided password template, it would be nice to have the user password feature back. Even with end user provided passwords they will surely forget eventually. I am trying to avoid getting into the password reset business. It also added to the ease of use to both my users and their recipients.

                        Thanks,
                        Ryan

                        • Simultaneous Active STAS Collectors

                          Would like to have multiple active STAS collectors reporting logins on DC directly to UTM. The current model only allows one collector to report to the UTM with other DCs using agents to feed the one collector.

                          • The UTM should have a capability to restart the red device that it is managing...

                            Today our Sophos Red 50 cannot provide internet access to networks behind it but we can still connect through tunnel and can view networks behind. After restarting the RED it goes back to normal but the thing is we have to go on site to unplug the unit physically. As per your support, currently there is no way we can just restart the RED remotely even if connection to UTM is still up.

                              The idea would be change this text of the alert.

                                  • Admin rights on web admin page to forcefully logout a user

                                    It would be very useful if admins could force individual users to be logged out from the web appliance. This would help in cases where the authentication timeout is very long and the user has closed the captive portal window that allows them to log out.
