  1. Remove support for TLS 1.0/Allow it to be disabled.

    PCI scans that see a remote access port open to the internet fail because the appliance still supports TLS 1.0. I have to dispute this every time, and it is a real hassle.

    • Reset a device to factory settings using a paper clip

      When a Sophos UTM device is rendered inoperable due to a software or configuration problem, provide a means to reset the device to factory settings by using a paperclip to press a reset button. Like a Airport express device or many other electronic devices, it should not be possible to press the reset button accidentally.

      When the reset button is depressed, beep several times, format the internal hard disk, install the software from an internal flash drive, or hidden recovery partition and when done, beep several times to notify the user its done.

      When the system is restored, permit the…

      • RED: High Availability Unit Support

        Option for usinig two REDs in active/passiv config. If one RED fails the other will be online.

        Case:
        Customer has two Internet Connections, and wants to have two REDs. (It is a must cause of possible HW failure). There should be an automatic switch from one RED to the other and back. (both RED are connected internally to the same switch)

              • 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,

                • ASG Hardware: Rear USB Ports

                  Hi,
                  with ASG220 rev4 the USB ports on the backside of the ASG got lost.

                  This is not very useful, because know I have to put UPS and KVM cable to the front.

                  Please have 2 USB Ports on the backside again.

                  • Firmware-Fallback

                    After the momentary dissaster with 9.410 (and 9.411) it would be great to have the possiblility to switch back to the latest working version without any factory-reset.
                    Two different partitions. If the update goes wrong, switch back to the functionaly version.

                    • Scheduled restart of SG units

                      It would be nice if it was possible to schedule a reboot of the SG unit/virtual appliance.
                      During a period of time the software consumes about 20% more memory than at reboot

                      • Disable the need for root password for fsck on boot when filesystem is not clean/damaged after power outage. Automate fsck process on boot.

                        Our UTM120 did no longer boot and upon connecting a screen we notice it was asking for the root password to perform a manual fsck on /tmp

                        As the default setup on the UTM does not have a root password set we were unable to repair the filesystem and we experienced quite some downtime before we were able to reset the root password and repair the filesystem.

                        Is it possible in a future update to address this issue ? Automatically repair filesystem errors on bootup ? Skip fsck on /tmp ? Allow fsck to be performed without root login ?

                        • Appliances: Tighter power connector for UTM 1xx-series

                          The current power connector is not reliable since it easily can fall out.
                          I would prefer to have a connector with a lock, like the TE Connectivity VAL-U-LOK. Other firewall brands, like Fortinet for example, uses that type of contacts.

                              • Create a cheaper UTM based on the tilera platform.

                                Create a cheaper UTM based on the tilera platform 9 core cpu or higher. The Mikrotik products that I use have inspired me to request this. I know its lofty but it just seemed like a good idea.

                                • Make the UTM-425 ver. 9.x, work with Internet Explorer versions 8, 9, 10, etc...

                                  UTM 425 version 9, make the utm work with internet explorer for the webadmin and the user portal. Our current utm does not display these utm pages correctyl. We need to use FireFox. IE comes installed as part of MS-Windows and makes sense that it should work with IE by default. It should not matter what browser you are using to connect to the UTM.

                                    • Power supply failure logging and notifications

                                      For UTMs with dual power supplies, a single PSU failure is indicated via audible alarm and blinky light.It would be great to have this condition logged, and to have a new notification category. This way customers could parse logs/messages/traps and catch failure conditions quickly vice relying on audio/visual cues.

                                      • Built-in UPS for UTM/RED

                                        Some industrial and small form factor PCs are now being offered with an on-board UPS so that no extra hardware is needed. Building this into the smaller UTM appliances and the RED would help to make the devices even easier to deploy and manage.
