  1. 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.

    • Implement Tab and Forward/Back button in HTML5VPN Portal Webapps

      When using HTML5VPN Portal Webapps, I can only use a single page.
      And I can not go back to the previous page.
      I want you to implement Forward/Back button and Tabbed browser function.

      • Customize quarantine days / option to increase beyond 14 days in Total Control

        Currently quarantine is set to 14 days before mails is permanently deleted. This is too short for many users; for example if someone goes on vacation they may not be able to recover email in quarantine. Would be good to have the ability to edit the number of days mail is held in quarantine to meet various needs.

        • UserPortal

          Admin can disable the user name change in the user portal;
          Admin can disable the display of the security group;
          SSL VPN page should not be visible to users who do not have access =.;
          UserPortal with login integration Single-Sign-On;

          This is very much needed in the tool, since it is a security tool should also have this internal security regarding users.

          • Allow users to reset Active Directory passwords from the UTM User Portal

            Raised on behalf of a Sophos customer, see support case 6426894.

            Customer would like the UTM's User Portal feature to function in a similar manner to the portal available on the Microsoft TMG product.
            when using a TMG, if a user's Active Directory account has been flagged to 'Reset password at next logon" when they try to log into the portal, the TMG portal notifies the user that they need to change their password and completes the password change with them.

            Using a UTM in the same scenario results in an authentication failure (expected behaviour), but the customer would like…

            • Duration of recent messages

              Would it be possible to adjust the duration of the recent messages to display the last 30, 60 or even 90 days instead of just the previous two weeks?

              • We need a "Blacklist Group" object that we can populate with individual IP's or an IP range.

                We need a simple blacklist "group" object that we can pop in either individual IP's or an IP range. This would be used for blacklisting IPs and blocking/drop all traffic from these IPs before they hit the filter rules. Similar to how the country blocking works but with out own defined list of IPs, IP ranges and even domains (top level and subdomains).

                  • 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.

                    • Licensing approach - home use

                      Dear Sophos,

                      Can you please look into moving UTM9 to the same licensing model (CPU/RAM) as XG? UTM is a lovely thing to set up and use, but the number of IoT devices and TVs etc on my home network means that I've hit the 50 IP limit.

                      I'm really not liking XG's UI, unfortunately. Moving to XG is unlikely unless it improves markedly; I'd far rather stay with UTM, if you'd just sort out that darned limit... please!

                      • Log Non-Proxy Web Traffic

                        It would greatly help in debugging issues if the UTM would capture and display non-proxy web traffic in the capture logs.

                              • Scan email before releasing from quarantine

                                In Reflexion, if an email is spoofed AND has a virus, it gets placed into the user's quarantine where they can release it. We think mail should go through all of the filter rules before being quarantined. So for example if it's spoofed, it should still go through all of the other checks such as virus scans, attachment policies etc. If that isn't possible, can you please implement virus scanning before the message is released so we have one more security check before the message reaches the user.

                                  • Export Mail Header History to CSV or TXT

                                    Need option to export the mail header history to a txt or csv file in Reflexion Email Portal.

                                    At present the view of email headers is limited only to 100 rows and manually doing the copy/paste is too time consuming to be done on daily basis.

                                    Best would be to either provide option to do export as an csv/txt and/or increase the limit of rows to like 500 or 1000, as that way at least the time required for manual copy/paste will get reduced.

                                    • Support Request integrated in user portal

                                      An interesting (IMHO) feature to be integrated in user portal is support request.
                                      Users can launch support request and admin can take user desktop control using an HTML5 or Java RDP App.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Default Order of filter policies

                                          When creating a new Web Filter Profile, I need to reorder the filter policies each time since the order they are listed seems almost random. If would be nice if the order of the policies followed the order in which they are set in the Web Protection->Web Filtering->Policies screen.
