        Any updates on this? Another UTM customer here that needs this feature implemented yesterday.

        Hi Alan
        We abandoned the XG platform half a year ago, because allmost everything is highly BETA status, and very much untested, and things are breaking all over the place between firmware updates.
        Right now were happy customers on the UTM platform, and will be for the coming years until XG matures and the platforms merge into a stable product.
        In the meantime, please stop pointing UTM users in the direction of XG, as it is clearly not mature for enterprise and corporate installations!
        This is a small fix to the current very stable UTM platform - just accept the peoples voice, and implement, or reject it.
        Your "This feature was/is/mayby - soon implemented XG firewalls is of no use to your loyal customers who is still on UTM for a reason!

        This functionality may well have been implemented in the XG firewalls but when are you going to implement it for the SG series?

        hii,
        I decently need it because the users arent responsible for security - I DO.
        Please add it ASAP.
        Thank You

        To correct my last post, you can block access during non-work hours via the firewall rules, but still, the inactive disconnect is what we really need.

        We are 15 days into our "try-and-buy"... just discover this issue as well. Wow, scary. Also, would have been nice to have windows of time when certain user can access the VPN.

        Just spoke with support. This feature is still not available on the latest release. 9.309-3. I am sure I speak for everyone on this blog post, please Enable this Feature ASAP!

        This is PCI requirement 12.3.8. Sophos UTM is not a PCI compliant VPN endpoint and we're going to have to abandon it if this isn't corrected quickly. Our annual renewal is next month, March 2015.

        The Sophos UTM is sold as a PCI compliant firewall, yet PCI requires that all remote access VPN connections be automatically disconnected after a set amount of idle time.

        YOU NEED TO ENABLE THIS FEATURE!

        Any traction on this feature? I've had a few request as of late for it

      • Michael TamMichael Tam commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Many different types of firewall provides a setting that the administrator can set the connection timout / idle time for the sslvpn and ipsec vpn client to increase the security

        Thanks.
