  1. Let's Encrypt Integration

    It would be very nice if Let's Encrypt CA start with public certificates (letsencrypt.org), that we can get certs throug the UTM Gui. So that the "Let's Encrypt Client" is integrated in the UTM. Would it be possible?
    Best Regards

    • Allow multiple authentication methods for Web Protection (Non Windows/Mac OS X devices)

      I would like a feature that allows devices to connect to the internet without authentication method but also allow the user to log in through the browser at any point in the session to gain their filter group.

      Ex. Allow the user to log into a Chromebook without authenticating to UTM and be awarded the default profile. At any time they are blocked by the strict default profile it should allow the user to specify their username and gain their groups specific profile.

      • Central Portal: Adjust Columns Widths

        The column widths in the Central interface are fixed. This does not make sense and makes many items in the Alerts and RCA sections unreadable. The user should always be able to adjust all column widths.

        This should also be true for the Central Endpoint client. It makes no sense that the window is a fixed size that can not be expanded or maximized and that the columns cannot be adjusted. I cannot read most of the lines on my system which severely limits the usefulness of the log.

        • WAN-Bonding

          Please implement the posibility to bond WAN-lines. Free FW-Appliances like pfSense are able to do that. Why not Sophos?

          At home (my testing area, before I implement new confs in the company FWs) I have two ISPs. UnityMedia with 125/4 MBit and Telekom with 100/40 MBit. Only with an UTM it's not possible to bond the lines, so that I can use the full bandwith of both lines.
          Momentary I've solved that by putting a pfSense-appliance between the IPS-modems and the UTM. So I reach speeds like 223/44 MBit.
          But... why use an other appliance between ISP-lines and UTM? Why…

          • Enable users to reset their domain user password using Web Mail

            There are many companies that force employees to reset domain user passwords very often. Now, when employees need to access mail using their Web Mail and their password has expired they will have to call IT to reset their password, but if working hours has finished and there is no IT personnel in the office, or maybe it's weekend, which is even worse, they will have to wait until next working day so that IT can help. In situation like this, enabling users to reset their domain account password using Web Mail Portal, like Microsoft TMG does, would help.

            • Wireless: Support of non-Sophos Access Points

              Many customers have non-Sophos APs but would like to use some Wireless Protection feature. Therefore it would be nice if a small choice of Wireless Protection features were available for non-Sophos APs.

              • rulechecks sslvpn clients

                We would like restrictions to be checked on when sslvpn clients are connecting towards the network.

                For example if someone is running a specific service, the network connection is allowed, and otherwise not. or for exampe, if there is no anti-virus running from a specific vendor.

                • DHCP Duplicate IP Detection

                  Have the UTM DHCP server ping the IP address before attempting to issue it like Windows DHCP Server, to avoid an IP conflict. e.g. static address within DHCP scope.

                  Currently, if the UTM offers an IP address that already exists on the network the client sends a DHCP Decline, however the UTM will continue attempting to issue the same IP and the client will get stuck in this loop.

                  • Correct the reporting on the Email Appliance so the presentation is consistent.

                    At the moment, reporting has to be done manually because reports cannot be scheduled. The report order changes, so before I import it into my spreadsheet, it has to be reordered. At the moment, ordering is by Total. It would be more efficient if it were ordered in a consistent way, by Type. It would then be easy to simply copy and paste.

                    • IMAP Proxy for UTM/SG 9

                      Implement an IMAP proxy for UTM/SG 9. Provides filtering and scanning functionality for those that use this type of mail retrieval.
                      IMAP becomes more and more important for mail clients. The use of POP3 declines. On the other hand, threads caused by malicious mail attachments like crypto trojans or macro viruses are more dangerous than ever. By not implementing sufficient security for IMAP protocol Sophos leaves an increasing part of UTM/SG customers alone.

                          • Remove bug that erases custom domains from Virtual Web Servers when using Wildcard Certificates

                            When creating a Virtual Web Server and a wildcard certificate is used the domains list is auto-populated with *.domain.com and domain.com. If you delete those and put in custom domains and then click to expand the "Advanced" options, all the custom domains are deleted and replaced with the defaults.

                            After renewing the wildcard certificate and updating it on the existing Virtual Web Server object, all the custom domains are again deleted and replaced with the default.

                            This could cause a site outage if the changes get saved without the administrator noticing.

                            I recommend fixing the bug with the "Advanced" dialog,…

                                • 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.

                                  • Support AuthFormLocation in Reverse Proxy Configs

                                    Support redirection to the original URL when the reverse proxy auth form intercepts a request. I suspect the solution involves adding AuthFormLocation to the generated reverseproxy.conf but I'm not certain. Without this, the reverse authentication is useless for me.

                                    • Time-of-Click decode for Helpdesk administrators

                                      Hi all actually the decode function to understand the original encoded URL is under Configuration --> Network --> Network Connectivity tab and it's accessible only by System Administrator role on the appliance.
                                      It could be helpful to give access to that functionality also to Helpdesk administrator role like in Sophos Management Appliance it's already running that way under "Diagnostic Tools" tab.
                                      Regards.

                                      • Logging: show crypto session characteristics

                                        It is desirable to know the crypto characteristics of SSL/TLS sessions (services WAF, Web Protection, even SMTP). I am looking to know the cipher suite or its components: SSL/TLS protocol version, cipher used, MAC used, PFS group, etc). For planning purposes, it would be valuable to know which ciphersuites are in use, so that older ones such as TLS1.0 can be dropped when they are no longer needed. For forensic purposes, it becomes important if we ever need to investigate whether a successful downgrade attack has occurred.

                                        • 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.
