  1. XF firewall with Sandstorm and Heartbeat for home users

    Could Sophos consider to allow the use of sandstorm and heartbeat (with sophos free AV) for home users and increasing the ip limit to 100 (IoT is around the corner) for a price per year? 10$?

    If there is other people interested it could be another stream of incomes from sophos and at then end the use that the home users will do of sandstorm will be extremely limited compared with a company with thousands of users.

    • Allow Maxiumum Session Time per User/Group

      The current 'Maximum Session Timeout' is only available to be applied globally - this should be allowed to be configured / applied for different authentication methods, or as part of a Group Configuration. This is to allow RADIUS users a different session to a Local User.

        • Additional user info for guest Hotspot access

          In some places (like Brazil) the companies providing guest internet access must collect and store information about their users/visitors in order to allow them to get to the Internet.

          UTM should provide a custom form to allow the company to request the required data (like ID, email, phone numbers etc) and store those information for a specified amount of time (like 6 months, 1, 2 years etc)

          Also, they need to better correlate a web access to a hotspot visitor. Today it's only possible by searching different logs for IPs and voucher numbers. The voucher should be present in the…

          • 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

              • 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…

                • Uplink Monitoring - bind a monitoring host to a monitoring action

                  Scenario:

                  Main office communicates to multiple (3) branch offices over a single MPLS link. While we can create a monitoring host for each of the branch offices, it is not possible to bind a monitoring host to a particular action.

                  Presently when any of the monitoring hosts are detected to be offline, all Actions are performed. Greater granularity would allow the UTM to perform Action B only when Monitoring Host B is offline.

                  • 4096 bits SSL VPN Encryption

                    4096 bits SSL VPN Encryption is currently very common on many appliances but not on Sophos XG. Could you please add this level of encryption to the XG?

                    • SSL VPN Software Deployment (XG)

                      We need the ability to deploy the SSL VPN client is a centralized manner. Our remote users do not have local admin rights on their machines, so it would be great if a package could be deployed that would automate the install. I understand that each installation package has the users' certificate, but there still needs to be a solution to this. It was simple with the firewall product we moved from to remotely deploy the SSL VPN client software to the endpoints.

                          • Improve Application Control All-Over

                            I'd love if Sophos Application Control system, features, UI, etc ... Were similar to that of SonicWalls. If you take a look at a demo of their system, you'll see it's VERY feature-rich, with a very large array of different settings and such for applications. On top of that, they use an advanced method of identifying/classifying traffic using not only ports/protocols, but also application signatures and traffic patterns that applications use.

                            It would be great to see Sophos features improved over-all to properly compete with other solutions out there.

                              • SNI Support for XG Firewall

                                Server Name Indication (SNI) can be used to host multiple SSL sites on a single IP/Port. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_Name_Indication for details. It is already on UTM, but not XG. This will probably be needed if you ever decide to allow XG Firewall to request and manage Let's Encrypt certificates for multiple domains.

                                • 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.

                                        • Outlook add-in for Email Protection

                                          Outlook add-in so users can add senders to their blacklist on the local XG. (somebody has previously suggested an add-in for reporting spam to Sophos, however this would be a more immediate solution so the users are confident they won't see that spam item again)
