    • executive Report in different language(Korean)

      Executive report in the Archived executive report is generated in English even though the language is set the Korean. It would be nice, if the archived executive report is generated in Korean when Korean is selected for the language.

      • Change Web Protection so that active connections get cut off when a time limit rule takes effect

        Refer to this post:
        https://community.sophos.com/products/unified-threat-management/f/web-protection-web-filtering-application-visibility-control/84096/youtube-and-google-bypass-web-filtering-profile-block-once-content-is-loaded-in-chrome-tabs/314877#314877

        The issue is if I have time limits established in a Policy to cut users off from surfing during certain times of day, if that user has an active established connection to say youtube, when the rules time limit takes effect and puts the block in place, the active connections are not cut off, the user can continue to watch youtube until they terminate their connection to youtube in this example, at this point if they try to re-establish the connection, the web protection rule stops them for creating a new connection.

        I've now got…

        • "Search" for Firewall Rules

          In PROTECT > FIREWALL

          The Filter option is excellent to track traffic, but an independent search for RULE NAME or SOURCE or DESTINATION or WHAT or even ACTION would be of great use when you have over a hundred rules to search through.

          Also, reorganizing by these options is also useful. Alphabetical, at least.

          • Add option “Inactive + 2 Months” Devices under Computers dropdowns categories.

            For example Under computers dropdowns categories we have option:
            Show all computers, computers without a user, Mac computers etc...
            Can we also add option "Inactive + 2 Months" devices so we can select those devices in one click and if we need to delete them.

              • Add a QR Code to the Password of the day email

                We have a “Password of the day” Hotspot, where we send the password of the day by email to our teachers. If there would be a possibility to add the password as QR Code, the teachers could project the mail at the beamer and the students could copy the password from there instead of typing it into their Smartphones.

                • Expand Proxy Certificate validity (Signing CA)

                  It would be helpful if the validity of the Signing CA (UTM self signing cert) could be expanded, e.g. 5 years. Not hardcoded like now, but with a meu point to decide individual how long the validity should be (maybe in years). This would be great :o)

                      • Follow up email stating that it has re-established the connection

                        The alerts from the Reflexion state that it cannot connect to the client server need a follow up email stating that it has re-established the connection to the server. If gives us warnings and leaves us hanging and we have to manually check on it. An email stating that it has reconnected and spooled email is being released would save a lot of work especially after business hours.

                            Hi, it would be nice to have a progress bar or a rough estimate in the Sandstorm checking page, also it would be nice to make it more visible to the user that a scan is taking place and the file is being scanned.

                                  • Dual antivirus engine alerts/notification.

                                    The Avira Scanner died on the Customer's UTM for the 2nd time.

                                    It then fixed itself a week after.

                                    Customer did not receive any notification to say that only 50% of his AV scanning was functional (dual scanning turned on).
                                    Dashboard was showing a green tick next to antivirus.
                                    The only reason why customer noticed the issue was because they had issues with other module and they were going through the logs via backend.

                                    • DNS info forwarding from internal DNS to UTM

                                      Situation: One of my host ask my internal dns about suspicious address and than dns is asking through my UTM. ( that is why UTM has no idea about client and produce false infothat my dns is trying connect to C&C). This is very common situation in every company. My suggestion is for you to consider to write special software installed on DNS (windows AD). This software communicate with UTM and give it all info about clients dns queries. Its simple program but can change a lot because UTM would then inform me who is REALLY asking dns about suspicoius…

                                      • Time-Based Web Usage Reporting

                                        I would like to see time based (not by dates alone but by time - like 7:00pm to 7:00am) web usage reporting sorted by nodes, network or firewall rules.

                                        I'd like to see this as a drill down of the web usage activity reports.
